(Reuters) – U.S. Representative Sean Patrick Maloney, the head of the Democratic caucus’s fundraising arm in the House of Representatives, has held off a progressive challenger for the party nomination in a New York congressional race, AP projected on Tuesday.

Maloney beat Alessandra Biaggi, a left-leaning New York state senator endorsed by Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and will run in the general election on Nov. 8 for New York’s 17th congressional district.
