BOSTON (AP) — Democrat Katherine Clark and Republican Frank Addivinola have captured their respective party’s nominations in the special election primary for Massachusetts’ 5th Congressional District.

Clark, a state senator from Melrose, will face off against Addivinola, a Boston attorney, in the Dec. 10 special election to fill the U.S. House seat left vacant by Edward Markey’s election to the Senate.

Seven Democrats and three Republicans had battled for the chance to represent the district that includes communities north and west of Boston.

Clark beat fellow Democratic candidates Belmont state Sen. William Brownsberger, Middlesex Sheriff Peter Koutoujian, former Lexington school committeeman Martin Long, Stoneham resident Paul John Maisano, Ashland state Sen. Karen Spilka and Medford state Rep. Carl Sciortino.

Addivinola defeated fellow Republicans Michael Stopa, a Harvard scientist from Holliston, and Tom Tierney, a veteran from Framingham.
