Incumbent U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch of MA has fended off two Democratic primary challengers, including a Boston-based software engineer.

Mr. Capuano conceded the race to Ms. Pressley on Tuesday night, though the Associated Press had yet to declare a victor in the race.

With her primary win in the safe Democratic seat, Pressley is now poised to become the state's first African-American elected to the House. There are no Republicans on the November ballot. She joins a number of other black women who've won their primaries this year, including Stacey Abrams, who's running for governor in Georgia, Lauren Underwood, running for a congressional seat in IL, and Jahana Hayes, who's also running for a seat in Congress from CT.

The prospect of a Pressley upset had drawn some comparisons to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's defeat of Crowley in June.

Several deputies administered first aid to a man on the ground as they waited for EMTs to arrive, according to the footage. As the field for the race pulled up past the finish, TVG host Todd Schrupp exclaimed, " There's gunfire at the track ".

There are no Republican candidates. "She will serve the district well in Congress".

A survivor of sexual assault at Boston University and during her childhood, Pressley has been a vocal supporter of victims of sexual violence since long before the #MeToo movement.

The Boston Globe brought up the fact that Pressley - a woman of color - represents a new generation of Democratic leaders.

Capuano also had the backing of the Congressional Black Caucus PAC, and Massachusetts's first African-American governor, Deval Patrick.

But Nadal is more vulnerable in NY than he is at Roland Garros: At the French Open, he has an 86-2 career record and 11 titles. Thiem was 4-2 ahead in the fourth set before he was again reeled in and he was two points from defeat in the 12th game.

Pressley conceded throughout the race that there was little policy daylight between her and Capuano, though she did go further than him by calling for the abolishment of the Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agency.

"We will vote the same way, but I will lead differently", she said in a recent debate.

Capuano told supporters "America is going to be OK" and said Pressley is going to be a good congresswoman.

But she also argued her case in part based on identity, saying last week that "representation does matter".
