In a Manhattan battle, Rep. Jerry Nadler defeated fellow Democrat Carolyn Maloney in a closely watched primary, according to an Associated Press race call.

The two incumbents, who both chair powerful committees for the House Democratic caucus, were placed in the same district after a redistricting. (Nadler represented the Upper West Side for years, with Maloney representing the Upper East Side.)

Both Nadler and Maloney were first elected in 1992 and have voted largely the same over the years, with a few exceptions.

Maloney had outplayed his opponents, but Nadler received key endorsements, including from Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, DN.Y.

Another candidate, Suraj Patel, a former Obama aide, finished third.

Nadler is expected to take the House seat because the district leans so heavily Democratic. His opponent in November is Republican Michael Zumbluskas.
