NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Freshman U.S. Reps. Diane Black and Chuck Fleischmann have turned back vigorous attempts by Republican rivals to deny them another term in Congress.

Black beat Lou Ann Zelenik in the 6th District, and has no Democratic opponent.

Fleischmann defeated dairy executive Scotty Mayfield and Weston Wamp. The 3rd Disctrict congressman will face Democrat Mary Headrick in November.

Five other congressional matchups were decided.

1st District Rep. Phil Roe faces Democrat Alan Woodruff.

2nd District Rep. Jimmy Duncan faces Democrat Troy Christopher Goodale.

4th District Rep. Scott DesJarlais faces Democrat Eric Stewart.

7th District Rep. Marsha Blackburn faces Democrat Credo Amouzouvik.

9th District Rep. Steve Cohen faces Republican George Flinn.
The primaries for the opponents to Reps. Stephen Fincher, a Republican, and Jim Cooper, a Democrat, were too close to call.
