Two months ago, she unseated Michael Capuano, a 10-term rep. This Tuesday, she moved through the general election unopposed. Her victory in September victory had assured Pressley keys to the office as there were no Republican racing in the heavily democratic district. Pressley will now represent the 7th congressional district. In this district, the majority of the voting population are minority.

Joe Crowley of New York back in June. Democracy for America said Tuesday night in a statement ‘‘With her victory tonight, Ayanna Pressley has not only made history as the first black woman ever elected to represent Massachusetts in the U.S. House of Representatives, she’s ensured that Democrats have the voice of a young, black progressive woman helping lead the fight for inclusive populist reforms.’’ ALSO READ Hundreds of Protesters Block Trains over Fatal Killing of Black Man in MinneapolisPressley entered the race with a clear sense of what she wanted, telling voters that she was viewing the race as ‘‘a fight for the soul of our party and the future of our democracy”.
