DNC on Massachusetts Primary Elections
September 5, 2018
DNC Chair Tom Perez issued the following statement on the results of tonight’s Democratic primary races in Massachusetts:
“Congratulations to gubernatorial nominee Jay Gonzales and all of the Democratic candidates who won today’s primary races in Massachusetts, including 7th Congressional District nominee Ayanna Pressley. With Pressley’s historic nomination tonight, Massachusetts is one step closer to sending its first-ever African American woman to Congress. I know this fantastic slate of Democratic candidates will work tirelessly for the state’s working families, and Massachusetts voters know these Democrats have their back and share their values.
“The DNC was proud to invest $50,000 in the Massachusetts Democratic Party to help boost the state party’s organizing capacity in communities across the state. We look forward to continuing to partner with the Massachusetts Democrats to support our candidates up and down the ticket as we march together toward victory in 2018.”
