Maura Healey backs Ayanna Pressley in primary for House seat

Attorney General Maura Healey went all set for City Councilor Ayanna Pressley generally for Massachusetts’ 7th congressional seat — going against other Democratic leaders’ endorsement of incumbent U.S. Rep. Michael Capuano.

“I pay attention to the people, not the party,” Healey insisted yesterday.

Healey led a Canvass Kick-Off campaign for Pressley yesterday at La Fabrica Central restaurant in Cambridge, wherein a raucous crowd chanted “Change can’t wait” and organized intends to knock on doors and get numerous voters as is possible ready for Sept. 4.

“I think that they’re both good candidates, specifically me it’s about that has the opportunity to lead … in order to energize and bring more people on the movement that people need to have all over this county,” Healey told the Herald. “I’ve brought on Ayanna; I’ve gotten stuff finished Ayanna; I understand how she sees the whole world and who she represents i understand how she advocates. She’s been an amazing partner in government.”

Capuano is often a 10-term congressman who’s earned endorsements from Mayor Martin. J Walsh, former Gov. Deval Patrick and U.S. Reps. Maxine Waters and John Lewis.

“Practical goal delusional with the fact that we are an underdog,” Pressley told the Herald. “It is a 20-year, formidable incumbent and just how we win will be igniting and growing this electorate.”

Pressley, who’s received support from New york city congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — who won her very own upset primary — gave an impassioned speech to supporters yesterday, saying, “We’re also making folks really irritating, because were challenging the usual understanding and narratives and disrupting and challenging the status quo.”

“I’m sure Ayanna offers that leadership knowning that vision,” Healey said. “I are aware, i have worked together with her as soon as i was at the attorney general’s office all night . brought on her because attorney general, how Ayanna gets things done.”
