Last week, a stunning political victory came out of Florida with Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum’s unforeseen win in the Democratic gubernatorial primary. This week, a political surprise arrived out of Boston. At-large Boston City Council member, Ayanna Pressley, 44, has stunned political prognosticators and defeated longtime Congressman Mike Capuano in the Democratic primary for Massachusetts’ 7th congressional district. Congressman Capuano, who is well regarded by colleagues, has been in Congress for twenty years. In less than sixty days, Pressley is to become the first Black U.S. Representative ever elected to Congress from Massachusetts. The seat she will be representing, Massachusetts’ 7th district, was once held by John F. Kennedy. Pressley’s victory is one in a growing line of stunning upsets by progressive candidates this primary season. Many political observers are citing polls indicating Democrats will flip many House seats in their favor on November 6th.
