In a surprise defeat that reflects a changing Democratic party, Boston City Council member Ayanna Pressley has defeated 10-term Democratic Rep. Mike Capuano in Massachusetts' 7th Congressional District.

    Pressley is poised to become the first African-American woman to represent Massachusetts in the state's congressional history.


I was more surprised that it took until 2018 for Massachusetts to (possibly) have a black representative.
