Shontel Brown, the politician, won over Nina Turner, the state senator from the state of Ohio in the Democratic primary. She managed to win with very few votes. Brown has replaced Marcia Fudge, the former Representative from Ohio. Her victory marks the fact that more numbers of modest Democrat politicians are supported.
Nina Turner Lost By A Thin Margin
Shontel Brown is the chair of the Democratic Party of Cuyahoga county. She got chosen over Nina Turner who, along with being former senator, has also been a co-chair of Bernie Sanders, the senator from the state of Vermont. It was during the presidential elections of the year 2020. Not only that but she has been the same for so many other politicians. Nina Turner had the full support of Bernie Sanders, who is a leftist, and other “Squad” members including Cori Bush, Ilan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Alexandria-Ocasio-Cortez, the Representative.
While on the other hand, Shontel Brown was supported by some favorites of the establishment. They included Whip Jim Clyburn, the House Majority from the state of South Carolina, and Hillary Clinton. The seat that was made available after Fudge was to head the department of housing and urban development of the United States of America.
The 11th district of Ohio has more people supporting the Democratic Party and following this, the win of Shontel Brown over Nina Turner in the primary is likely to place her in the said seat. And with that, the winner will now be running against Laverne Gore, the Republican who is the winner of the GOP primary. Apart from that, the voters chose their respective representative from the 15th Ohio congressional district. This took place this Tuesday. The former Representative was Steve Stivers from the Republican Party.
