Shontel Brown, a county council leader in Cleveland, was projected to defeat former State Sen. Nina Turner in the Democratic primary for Congress in Ohio that may have also been a referendum on the progressive wing of the political party.
Brown, a Cuyahoga County Councilwoman and the Democratic Party chair in Cuyahoga County, was trailing in polling in recent weeks until her fellow establishment Democrats offered her their endorsements, something that all but proved to be a major turning pointing the race.
The Hill reported that Turner conceded the race to Brown on Tuesday night.
“Tonight my friends, we have looked across the promised land, but for this campaign, on this night, we will not cross the river,” Turner told her supporters during a speech.
Brown now advances to the general election for the chance to fill former Ohio Rep. Marcia Fudge’s vacant seat in Congress after she was confirmed to be the Biden Administration’s secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
This is a developing story that will be updated.
