Earlier in the year, Massachusetts Rep. Mike Capuano (D-Somerville/Cambridge) drew a Democratic primary challenge from Cambridge City Councilman Nadeem Mazen, but that threat ended when the latter man hopped into the open 3rd District race. Now, Rep. Capuano may face a new primary opponent. According to a Politico publication story, Boston City Councilwoman Ayanna Pressley, who is elected citywide as one of four at-large members, is seriously considering challenging Mr. Capuano next year. The Massachusetts candidate filing deadline isn’t until June 5th for the late September 18th state primary, so plenty of time remains for many political moves to occur.
