Quentin Palfrey Wins Mass. Democratic Primary For Lieutenant Governor

Paul Davis the Democratic nominee in the 2nd Congressional District of eastern Kansas answers questions during a news conference with representatives and public safety groups that have endorsed him in Topeka Kan. Davis

In 2009, she was the first woman of colour ever elected to the Boston City Council. She is not facing a Republican in November.

Brianna Wu is a co-founder of the video game company Giant Spacekat.

"I knew we would be essentially, alone", Pressley said during her victory speech.

The 63-year-old Lynch is a former union ironworker and grew up in South Boston.

Capuano conceded to Pressley a little more than an hour after polls closed. "But Pressley is a proven advocate with an understanding of the needs of the district, and she would be a fresh voice in Congress. Pressley represents the present of the 7th District and the future of the Democratic Party".

The race between Capuano and Pressley was perhaps the most closely watched contest in MA, especially since Pressley drew comparisons to Ocasio-Cortez.

US Open - Benoit Paire vs Roger Federer Preview & Prediction
Roger forced an error from his rival on the fifth set point and he broke back after a costly double fault from Novak. Federer will play Frenchman Benoit Paire , a 7-6, 3-6, 7-5, 7-6 victor over Austrian Dennis Novak , in round two.

Republicans didn't run a candidate in the heavily Republican Boston-based district, and Pressley is all but guaranteed to join the next Congress.

The Democratic nominating contest fight between US Representative Michael Capuano, 66, and Boston City Councilor Ayanna Pressley, 44, was his first since 1998. Pressley was endorsed by Ocasio-Cortez, and has been profiled in several news outlets.

Pressley was long considered the underdog. She'll face Geoff Diehl, a state representative who served as co-chairman of President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign in the state and defeated two other Republicans for his party's nomination. She ousted 10-term New York Rep. Joe Crowley in a Democratic primary in June.

"Clearly, the district wanted a lot of change", he told supporters. Still, Pressley joins Ocasio-Cortez in New York, Stacey Abrams in Georgia and Andrew Gillum in Florida in the ranks of progressive, non-white politicians who represent demographic change and perspective in the Democratic Party.

"I have been really furious about the constant charges being lobbed against me about identity politics that, by the way, are only lobbed against women and candidates of color", she said in one debate.

Monteiro says as a woman raised by a single mother coming from a "tough neighborhood", she can relate to Pressley "in so many ways".
