The Moment Ayanna Pressley Realized She’d Beaten A 10-Term Congressman

Ayanna Pressley

Big news coming out of Massachusetts today – a Boston City Councilor, Ayanna Pressley, defeated 10-term Rep. Mike Capuano in Tuesday’s closely watched Massachusetts Democratic primary.

With no Republican challenger looming in the deep-blue district, Pressley is all but assured to win election in November and become the first black woman to represent Massachusetts in Congress, doing so in a district once represented by John F. Kennedy.

This is the moment Pressley found out she won.
