Michael Capuano in the Democratic primary for the 7th Congressional district in MA. Joseph P. Kennedy II and former Sen.

A 10-term Democratic congressman has conceded defeat to a Boston city councillor who is now poised to become Massachusetts' first black congresswoman in a race with parallels to a NY upset that rattled the party in June.

"Ayanna Pressley is going to be a good Congresswoman and MA is going to be well served", Capuano said in his concession speech.

Capuano is now the fourth incumbent to fall in a primary election this year, joining Republican Reps.

However, unlike Crowley, Capuano had fiercely contested the MA race by racking up endorsements, attending debates and highlighting his consistently liberal voting record in one of the most Democratic districts in a traditionally Democratic state.

It is the latest in a series of victories for progressive, young and minority candidates representing the opposition party.

Rescue operations were on until late night. "The rest of the investigation will be done later", the minister added. If they were there during the collapse, it is possible that something unfortunate may have happened to them.

Ayanna Pressley, Boston city councillor and House Democratic candidate, gives a victory speech at her primary night gathering Tuesday in Boston.

During the race, Capuano raised $1.73m to Pressley's $890,000, actively campaigning against her and even cancelling his vacation as soon as he heard she was running.

US Representative Richard Neal, the 69-year-old ranking member of the House Ways and Means Committee, now in his 15th two-year term, held off a challenge by 44-year-old lawyer Tahirah Amatul-Wadud, a Muslim who was endorsed by Our Revolution, a progressive group that grew out of US Senator Bernie Sanders' 2016 Democratic presidential campaign. Amatul-Wadud would have been among the first Muslim women in Congress. Democrats need to win 23 seats to take back the majority in the House of Representatives.

Ayanna Pressley applauds in front of her supporters during primary day on September 4, 2018 in Chelsea, Massachusetts. Robert Pittenger, R-N.C.; Mark Sanford, R-S.C., and fellow 10-term Rep. Joe Crowley, D-N.Y.

With 60 percent of precincts reporting, he led video game developer Brianna Wu 70 percent to 25 percent, according to the AP. Tedeschi has some name recognition from his family's franchise of 200 convenience stores. But Inside Elections rates the seat Solid Democratic.
