Shontel Brown defeats radical challenger Nina Turner in Democratic primary

Ohio Democratic Rep. Shontel Brown remained her party’s nominee despite a tough push by radical candidate Nina Turner in the state’s competitive primary on Tuesday.

Brown won in a race that will likely lead to her win in November in the heavily Democrat district.

The win came despite heavy financial responses to Turner’s campaign. She reportedly raised over $6.5 million.

“During Rep. Brown’s five short months in Congress, she has proven to be a tenacious advocate for the people of her district and a fierce fighter for the Democratic agenda and our party’s values,” DMFI PAC President Mark Mellman said in a statement.

“Ohio Democrats sent a clear message that they want candidates who seek to unite the party,” he added.

The win helped show that the party continues to prefer more moderate Democrats. Turner was endorsed by Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.
