Pat Lang of Athens is halfway to a seat in Congress.

Lang, a Democrat, won his primary race yesterday in the 15th District.

But now he goes up against Republican Steve Stivers, the incumbent, who also won a two man contest.

"People understand that Congress is broken and that, to change it, we've got to change who we're sending there," said Lang in a statement sent out after the primary votes were counted.

Lang went on to say that Stivers doesn't understand the values of the Athens-area.

Lang beat Scott Wharton in the primary.

Lang had 55 percent of the vote, while Wharton had 45 percent.
