In nearby Connecticut, Jahana Hayes is on track to become that state's first black woman to win a congressional seat if she prevails in November.
Brianna Wu is a co-founder of the video game company Giant Spacekat. Ocasio-Cortez endorsed Pressley shortly after her win.
The 63-year-old Lynch is a former union ironworker and grew up in South Boston.
But both Pressley and Capuano admit there's likely no difference between them in terms of the way they'll vote in Congress, and moreover, neither one has expressed outright opposition against Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi. While she was similarly outspent by her opponent, Amatul-Wadud did not raise much in her race, coming in at $113,000.
Pressley's win was the latest in a streak of victories by younger, more racially diverse Democratic candidates against established rivals ahead of the November 6 election when Democrats need to pick up 23 seats in the House of Representatives to serve as a more effective foil to Trump's agenda.
Ayanna Pressley is all but assured of becoming the first black woman elected to Congress from MA, the latest example of the Democratic Party's embrace of diversity and progressive politics as the recipe for success in the Trump era. Pressley has drawn comparisons to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Rep. Stephen F. Lynch easily won his Democratic primary Tuesday in his bid for a ninth full term.
Pressley may be considered an outsider by virtue of who she is.
The 7th District encompasses Boston's residential neighborhoods and its surrounding suburbs, with large Hispanic, black and Asian populations, and is the state's only majority-minority district.
In a concession speech on Tuesday night, he said: "Ayanna Pressley is going to be a good congresswoman".
"When I was growing up, my mother and I felt voiceless and invisible, but she made sure I knew that on Election Day we were powerful", she said during her speech.
