Everett CapuanoBoston Globe endorses progressive challenger vying for Ocasio-Cortez-style upset of Dem lawmaker Pelosi sees defections from an unusual quarter - the left The Hill's Morning Report - Trump heads to NY to shore-up GOP districts MORE (D-Mass.) - conceded the primary race in his Boston-area district, Pressley told supporters that the president is a "racist" and "empathy-bankrupt" individual. "I am so humbled to be standing before you tonight, victorious".
Pressley's win was the latest in a streak of victories by younger, more racially diverse Democratic candidates against established rivals ahead of the November 6 election when Democrats need to pick up 23 seats in the House of Representatives to serve as a more effective foil to Trump's agenda.
"Ayanna Pressley is going to be a good congresswoman", Capuano said in brief remarks to supporters.
Ms. Pressley, the first black woman elected to the Boston City Council, challenged Mr. Capuano from the left and on style and identity, in a pattern similar to the upset victory of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez earlier this summer in NY. Pressley, a Democrat, beat the incumbent representative Michael Capuano. "Ayanna Pressley is going to be a good congresswoman, and I will tell you that MA will be well served", the 66-year-old said. However, the 7th District race wasn't drawn along ideological fault lines.

There is a changing of the guard in the 7th Congressional District, with shockwaves sure to reverberate throughout the Democratic Party.
Capuano conceded the election early after returns started flowing in, a sign of how badly Pressley defeated him. "Policies that have become so engrained in our daily lives as to nearly convince ourselves that there wasn't anything we could do about it". Warren thanked Capuano for his decades of public service Tuesday night and said she was looking forward to working with Pressley in Washington, D.C.
Pressley has been a member of the council for nine years, and previously worked as a staffer for Senator John Kerry and Representative Joseph Kennedy II.
