The Ohio congressional primary is disclosing the differences within the members of the Democratic party that stayed hidden for a very long period of time. At Least until the first few months of president Joe Biden getting elected as the head of the state. The differences are ideological and generational in nature. However, it has been doubted that unlike in the recent election, the differences revealed by the Ohio congressional primary are set to have consequences in the midterm elections that are approaching.

Ohio Congressional Primary’s Consequence

One of the former senators of the state, Nina Turner, is currently caught in a battle with the chairwoman of the Democratic Party of Cuyahoga County, Shontel Brown. It is to be noted that Brown has a good backup of the establishment. The race is in order to be the representative of the much desired “11th District.”

The said district stretches from the city of south Cleveland to that of Akron. The Ohio congressional primary is to take place on the 3rd of August. It is to take place in order to replace Marcia Fudge, one of the former Representatives. Fudge resigned from her seat in order to join the cabinet of Joe Biden, the acting President. She is currently working as the “Housing and Urban Department” secretary. 

It is undoubtedly true that whoever emerges as the winner of the Ohio congressional primary, will be the winner of the general elections as well. And this is the precise reason why the race has turned to be an “intra-party” one. However, this might be a problem in the future that can cause more issues in the future. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Representative hailing from the state of New York, gave a statement to all the volunteers who were set to make house visits. It was during her visit to the campaign stop that war was arranged for Nina Turner.
