Mike Capuano and Ayanna Pressley

Ayanna Pressley, the first Black woman elected to the Boston City Council, upset 10 term incumbent Mike Capuano in Massachusetts’ 7th congressional district primaries on Tuesday. Pressley could become the first Black woman to represent Massachusetts in the House of Representatives in the midterm elections.

Pressley and Congressman Capuano, both Democrats, campaigned in the minority majority 7th congressional district where voters are overwhelmingly white, but the population is majority minorities.

Pressley, 44, appealed to Black women voters in the district who came out in record numbers on Tuesday night. 56 percent of voters in the 7th congressional district in Massachusetts are women.

The political climate changed drastically since Donald Trump was elected president in 2016. Globalist George Soros is pouring millions into local Democratic primaries in an effort to send more women and minorities to Congress.

Black women have been the key vote in many Democratic primaries and general elections.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez upset incumbent Democrat Joe Crowley in New York’s 14th congressional district primary on June 26. Ocasio-Cortez backed Pressley in Tuesday’s primaries.

Capuano, 66, knew he had a fight on his hands going into Tuesday’s primaries.

“Look, I cannot be a woman of color,” he told WBUR prior to the primary election. “And if that’s what people care about, that’s fine. I accept that, I understand that. I just don’t think there are that many people who will vote for me because I’m a white male or vote against me because I’m a white male.”
