Shontel Brown, who stuck close to President Biden, wins Democratic primary for House seat in Ohio, AP projects; Nina Turner, who was backed by Sen. Bernie Sanders, conceded in the special election primary to represent Ohio’s 11th Congressional District. https://t.co/Vo8WWHjZWK

“Conceded” might be an inaccurate way to frame Turner’s remarks after losing the election:
#OH11 Nina Turner in concession speech: “I am going to work hard to ensure that something like this doesn’t happen to another progressive candidate again. We didn't lose this race, evil money manipulated and maligned this election.”

The narrative has done a one-eighty, at least for now…

As for Turner’s claim that her opponent raising more money than she did, there’s plenty of disagreement:
🤔 Didn’t she raise and spend more than Brown?

Yeah but it was "good" money.

Nina Turner outspent her opponent. Is money only evil if someone else spends it?https://t.co/vB65ewWC45
