Quentin Palfrey Wins Mass. Democratic Primary For Lieutenant Governor

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.

The ad arrives ahead of the NFL season, marked by controversy over the league's response to the protests inspired by Kaepernick. In November 2016, customers of sportswear brand New Balance burned their shoes in protest of its perceived support for Trump .

Colin Kaepernick Is New Face of Nike's "Just Do It" Campaign
Chief Executive Officer Mark Parker apologized for the company's work culture in May to employees in a company-wide meeting. Their ire spawned the hashtag #NikeBoycott . "They really use their platform in ways that are unfathomable".

Japan braces for possible strongest typhoon in 25 years
Typhoon Cimarron sliced across western Japan less than two weeks ago, dumping heavy rain before heading out to sea. Department stores in western Japan including Osaka and Kyoto prefectures made a decision to close for the day.

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".
