"I knew we would be essentially, alone", Pressley said during her victory speech.
Massachusetts' last Democratic primary upset came in 2014, when Seth Moulton defeated Rep. John Tierney in the state's 6th Congressional District.
Bob Woodward's book on Trump: The most explosive quotes
Bush and Barack Obama . "This thing's a. hoax", Trump finally said, before deciding he didn't want to testify after all. One reason McMaster dresses as he does is that he has spent his life serving his country, rather than making money.
Capuano said in his concession speech that "clearly the district wanted a lot of change".
A piece in Boston.com profiling Pressley's race after Ocasio-Cortez's victory this summer noted the similarities between their two campaigns.
Pressley backs Medicare-for-all, the single-payer healthcare proposal, which helped her garner backing from Our Revolution, the offshoot of Vermont Sen.

Pressley has drawn comparisons to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. "Ayanna Pressley is going to be a good congresswoman", he said.
Donald Trump warns Syria, Russia, Iran against Idlib 'tragedy'

Rep. William Keating easily fended off a challenge from his left in his bid for a fifth term. Plus, he had received the backing of local party officials, the Congressional Black Caucus PAC and even from Deval Patrick, the state's first African-American governor.
There is no Republican on the November ballot in the district, meaning Pressley is virtually assured of entering Congress in January.
