BOSTON (AP) — Five of the state’s nine Democratic U.S. House members face no Republican challengers this fall.

That’s according to a list of congressional candidates released Tuesday by the Massachusetts Secretary of State’s office.

Two Republicans — Mark Alliegro and Thomas Joseph O’Malley — are vying for the chance to unseat Rep. Bill Keating, who represents the 9th District, which includes Cape Cod and the Islands.

Five incumbents — Reps. Richard Neal, Jim McGovern, Katherine Clark, Seth Moulton and Michael Capuano — have no opposition from any party candidates.

Republican Ann Wofford is challenging Rep. Niki Tsongas while Rep. Joe Kennedy will face Republican David Rosa. Rep. Stephen Lynch faces a challenge from Republican William Burke.

The state’s two Democratic U.S. senators, Elizabeth Warren and Edward Markey, are not up for re-election this year.

Non-party candidates have until August 30 to submit nomination papers.
