Sept. 4 major benefits: Massachusetts
Tuesday&rsquos principal delivered an additional political upset, setting the stage for the initial black lady to represent Massachusetts in Congress.
Gubernatorial primary outcomes:
Republican Gov. Charlie Baker earned his celebration&rsquos nomination in Tuesday&rsquos primary, defeating Scott Lively, a conservative minister and strong supporter of President Donald Trump as he seeks his second term.
On the Democratic side, Jay Gonzalez won his party&rsquos main, edging out Robert Massie &ndash a longtime political and environmental activist, who struggled to raise cash for his campaign.
Both Baker and Gonzalez share a similar background, operating as state secretary of administration and finance under their celebration&rsquos respective governor, while also top a health insurance coverage organization following leaving politics. They will square off in November.
GOP Main &ndash Charlie Baker (Incumbent)            Votes: 154,874       Vote Percentage: 64.1%
Dem Main &ndash Jay Gonzalez       Votes: 315,665       Vote Percentage: 64.eight%
U.S. Senate primary results:
Democratic U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren had no challenger in Tuesday&rsquos principal, and will face Republican state Rep. Geoff Diehl who defeated two other GOP opponents for the opportunity to unseat Warren in November.
The GOP will have a challenging time defeating Warren, who is also widely deemed as a contender in the 2020 presidential race, as Massachusetts is strongly opposed to Trump and the Republicans make up less than 11 % of the electorate.
Warren has previously said she is not operating for president.
GOP Main &ndash Geoff Diehl              Votes: 126,364                    Vote Percentage: 54.eight%
Dem Principal &ndash Elizabeth Warren  UNCONTESTED
U.S. Home of Representatives
Ayanna Pressley, a progressive candidate who was backed by Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, delivered another political stunner on Tuesday &ndash defeating 10-term incumbent Rep. Michael Capuano in the state&rsquos 7th Congressional District.
Pressley&rsquos victory comes on the heels of Ocasio-Cortez&rsquos upset over longtime Rep. Joe Crowley, D-N.Y in a main earlier this year, and is however one more indication of the altering of the guard within the Democratic Party as it seeks a much more younger and diverse base.
There is no Republican challenger on the November ballot, primarily guaranteeing the 44-year-old to turn into Massachusetts&rsquo 1st black lady to serve in Congress.
