Neighborhood Network News: 9/5/18

We begin tonight with the change that couldn't wait. Last night the result was early and decisive: a stunning Democratic primary upset for Ayanna Pressley over Boston's Congressman for the past twenty years, Mike Capuano.

Yesterday's Democratic primary also resulted in the defeat of two state representatives: Byron Rushing by Jon Santiago and Jeff Sanchez by Nika Elugardo. There were two local house seats up for grabs--in South Boston, won by David Biele, and in Dorchester and Roxbury by Liz Miranda.

In the Democratic primary for Suffolk County District Attorney, the winner was Rachael Rollins.
She had almost twice the number of votes for the second-place candidate Greg Henning, who enjoyed an almost three-to-one advantage in fundraising.
