Walsh Endorses Capuano For Re-Election

This article is more than 2 years old.

Boston Mayor Marty Walsh announced over the weekend he is supporting Congressman Michael Capuano's bid for re-election in November.

Walsh says he's supporting Capuano because he could lead key committees should the Democrats take the House back from the Republicans in the mid-terms.

The endorsement event was held in Dorchester, where Capuano's opponent, City Councilor Ayanna Pressley, lives.

An official from her campaign said in a statement that the Pressley campaign is focused on building a truly grassroots organization.
