Pressley beat out Garrison for an at-large council seat past year, but come January, Pressley likely will be trading her City Hall office for one in Washington, D.C.

Ayanna Pressley, 44, beat veteran politician Mike Capuano, 66, after mounting an insurgent campaign in MA 7th Congressional District.

Massachusetts Rep. Michael Capuano became the second Democratic congressman to lose in a primary this year, falling to Boston City Councilor Ayanna Pressley in a race that attracted national attention as the latest referendum on the future of the Democratic Party.
