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.

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.
