At-large Boston City Councilor Ayanna Pressley today announced she's running for the 7th District congressional seat now held by Mike Capuano of Somerville.
Should the Dorchester resident win the Democratic primary, and then the final election in November, she would be replaced on the council by Althea Garrison, who came in fifth in the race for four at-large seats last fall. Pressley has been on the council since 2009.
