Concord — A state lawmaker who served in the Air Force and worked in the defense industry has won the Republican nomination for the state’s 2nd Congressional District and will face Democratic incumbent Annie Kuster in November.

Steven Negron defeated six other GOP candidates to get his party’s nomination in Tuesday’s primary. Kuster sailed through the primary unopposed.

Negron was part of an intercontinental ballistic missile combat crew member in Missouri and at Air Force Space Command in Colorado Springs, Colo. He’s a gun rights candidate who has campaigned on stopping illegal immigration and balancing the federal budget.

Negron says he wants to help small businesses like the one he founded, Nashua-based Integron.

He defeated whistle-blowing doctor Stewart Levenson and five other Republicans.
