(AP) &mdash;&nbsp; Filled with big money punches and verbal attacks, the primary for the 6th District congressional seat is looking more like a female boxing match: Black vs. Zelenik, the rematch.</p><p>Two years ago former state Sen. Diane Black defeated Lou Ann Zelenik by fewer than 400 votes in a GOP primary that pitted Black&#39;s mainstream Republican credentials against Zelenik&#39;s tea party fervor. Black went on to win the seat east of Nashville, helping tip the Tennessee congressional delegation to 7-2 in favor of the GOP.</p> Mon, 30 Jul 2012 13:31:09 +0000 Associated Press 13808 at http://wmot.org Tenn.
