Ayanna Pressley is set to become the first African-American woman elected to the US Congress in Massachusetts, following a primary upset.
The 44-year-old Boston city councillor beat House veteran Michael Capuano to secure the Democratic nomination.
She will not face a Republican opponent in November’s mid-term election.
It is the latest in a series of victories for progressive, young and minority candidates representing the opposition party.
2018 has also seen a historic amount of female candidates run for Democratic nominations.
