Like Crowley’s in New York, Capuano’s 7th District in Massachusetts is majority-minority.

Capuano is half-Irish and half-Italian. But if Pressley won, she’d be the first nonwhite member of the House from the Bay State…

Democrats who say Capuano has a real race on his hands admit that the threat says more about his opponent’s strengths than it does about his weaknesses. Pressley, who previously worked for former Sen. John Kerry and former Rep. Joseph P. Kennedy II, is a past recipient of the EMILY’s List Rising Star Award. The pro-abortion rights group has been in touch with her, but does not endorse against Democratic incumbents who support abortion rights.
