On Tuesday, Ohio voters headed to the polls for many highly anticipated races, including in the Cleveland area where Democrat Rep. Shontel Brown faced a rematch of a previous special election against Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) chosen far-left candidate Nina Turner.

Fox News reports:


The Associated Press called the 11th District primary for Brown, D-Ohio, shortly before 10:30 p.m.

Both Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and President Biden jumped into the race at the last second. Biden announced his support for Brown last week, and Ocasio-Cortez backed Turner on Monday, the day before the primary.

But even before the endorsements, Brown had most of the establishment backing in the race while Turner, a top surrogate for Sen. Bernie Sanders‘ 2016 and 2020 presidential campaigns, was backed by many on the left.

The victory for Brown in the Cleveland-based district is a loss for Ocasio-Cortez, who has an effective record of endorsing Democratic primary challengers. She supported Rep. Cori Bush, D-Ohio, who beat former Rep. Lacy Clay, D-Mo., and Rep. Jamaal Bowman, D-N.Y., who unseated former Rep. Eliot Engel, D-N.Y. Ocaio-Cortez herself beat former Rep. Joe Crowley, D-N.Y., to enter Congress in 2018.

Now, this is the second time the AOC-backed candidate has lost to the more establishment pick, which could be a bellwether for other races across the nation. Many of Ocasio-Cortez’s chosen candidates still have primaries in New York, runoffs in Texas, and races across the nation.

Good! Ocasio-Cortez-Cortez is an idiot! The more losses for her, the better! Now, New Yorkers, vote the braying ass OUT and get a real candidate with a brain! Ummmm, that would be a Republican!
