In January, Ayanna Pressley announced that she would challenge longtime Democratic incumbent Rep. Michael Capuano in the primary for Massachusetts’ 7th congressional district. In the eight months that have followed, Pressley, who was first elected to the Boston City Council in 2009, has knocked on doors, participated in debates, raised campaign cash, given interviews, and attended rallies, all with the goal of bringing a new voice to Washington, D.C. In the final week before the Sept. 4 primary, WGBH News joined Pressley for a 12-hour stretch. This is the story of a day in her campaign, in pictures.
