Congratulations to #AyannaPressley for winning the Democratic nomination for Massachusetts’ 7th Congressional District. She defeats Rep. Michael Capuano, a 10-term incumbent in the #Massachusetts Primary. So far, there is no Republican on the ballot in November’s midterm election, which means Pressley is almost certain to become the state’s first black congresswoman. Backed by #AlexandriaOcasioCortez, Pressley has called the New Yorker “my sister in change.” #PinkWave. . . . . .
