Quentin Palfrey Wins Mass. Democratic Primary For Lieutenant Governor

Secretary of State William Galvin fends off challenger Josh Zakim

"Ayanna Pressley is going to be a good congresswoman and MA will be well served".

Ms Pressley argued she would bring new energy and awareness of the needs in the state's only congressional district where a majority of residents are not white.

With no Republican on the ballot in November's midterm election, Pressley is now nearly certain to become the state's first black congresswoman.

Ayanna Pressley, touted as the next Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, just won a MA primary.

City Councilor Ayanna Pressley beat U.S. Representative Michael Capuano by a stunning 59-41 margin to secure the Democratic nod to represent a district including most of Boston, and is poised to be the state's first black woman in Congress as she faces no Republican challenger.

Pressley signaled on Tuesday that she expected to shake up her own party.

But it seems Coca-Cola swung in with an offer that was much more lucrative for Whitbread: the deal is worth £3.9 billion. Proceeds of the sale will be used to pay down debt and boost the pension fund.

"It seems like change is on the way", said Pressley to raucous applause at her election night party.

She is now seeking the Democratic nomination for the MA 7th Congressional District and was the first woman of color elected to the Boston City Council in its 100-year history.

When the 44-year-old rising star in the Democratic Party heard the results, she just couldn't believe it. As FiveThirtyEight reports, a MA candidate has followed in the footsteps of the young Ocasio-Cortez with a surprising upset against a mainstream Democrat challenger on Tuesday evening.

If Democrats take the House in November, the state delegation will be in line to lead two committees: the House Rules Committee with Rep. Jim McGovern and Ways and Means with Rep. Richard Neal.

Pressley, who represents the 7th district, one of Massachusetts' most diverse, has advocated for a progressive agenda, which includes abolishing ICE, increased mental health care services in schools and medicare for all. Joseph P. Kennedy II and former Sen. He also had the support of the Congressional Black Caucus. Robert Pittenger, R-N.C.; Mark Sanford, R-S.C., and fellow 10-term Rep. Joe Crowley, D-N.Y.

And black politicians in three states - Florida, Georgia and Maryland - have won the Democratic nomination for governor, a historic turn for a country that has elected just two black governors in USA history.
