CLEVELAND, OHIO: Shontel Brown made headlines on Tuesday, August 3, after she won the Democratic primary for the House seat in Ohio defeating Nina Turner, a former state senator known for her work on Senator Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaigns. Brown, backed by President Joe Biden, would succeed former Ohio US Representative Marcia Fudge as she was chosen by Cleveland area voters over Turner.

The Cuyahoga County Council member, who also heads the county’s Democratic Party, said after her win, “As essentially the next member of the 11th Congressional District, the next member of Congress, I can walk in the door with good relationships. I get the recognition but this was a collaborative partnership of the community.” On the other hand, Turner, who accepted her defeat shortly after 10 pm ET, told her supporters at a bowling alley in Maple Heights: “Don’t leave this place sad. Don’t leave this place depressed. I want you to leave this celebration more resolute, because we still have more work to do.”

State Representative Kent Smith, a Brown supporter and Democratic leader in the Cleveland suburb of Euclid and who earlier predicted her win, said, “Democrats control the House, Senate and presidency. Shontel Brown is going to come in there as one of 220 Democratic voices in the House, but because of the bridges that she's built already with Clyburn and with Kamala Harris and other significant Democrats, they’ve already got her phone number. I’m not sure Nina's calls are going to get returned.”

Brown's victory is being seen as a major victory of the Democratic establishment over the party’s progressive wing as the contest was seen as a bellwether for the Dems six months into Biden’s presidency and 15 months ahead of the midterms. While Brown had Hillary Clinton's endorsement, Turner had the backing of senator Bernie Sanders and the progressive wing of the Democratic party. Brown’s victory will be interpreted by moderates as proof that the party should hold the centre ground and not shift to the left.

After Brown’s win, Twitter was buzzing a lot with messages in support of her. A user tweeted, “The right person won. Thankfully, it wasn't Nina Turner.” The second one wrote, “WOKE UP TO SHONTEL BROWN WINNING OH11 PRIMARY!  So glad for her, for OH11 and for Congress, who doesn't have to put up with the despicable Nina Turner.” “Nina Turner : 490k followers, numerous viral tweets since 2016 Shontel Brown : 20k followers, zero viral tweets Lesson : 𝑻𝑾𝑰𝑻𝑻𝑬𝑹 𝑰𝑺 𝑵𝑶𝑻 𝑹𝑬𝑨𝑳 𝑳𝑰𝑭𝑬,” the third added while a person asked: “Nina Turner said that she didn't lose her election and that evil money manipulated the results of the race. When are Twitter, Facebook/Instagram, Reddit, Twitch, Shopify, Google/YouTube, TikTok, Apple, Discord, Pinterest, Amazon AWS, Stripe, Twilio, and Okta going to ban her?!”
