Ocasio-Cortez-Backed Challenger Defeated in Closely-Watched Election

Ocasio-Cortez-Backed Challenger Defeated in Closely-Watched Election

(ConservativeInsider.org) – It seems that America may be growing tired of far-left, radical Democrats. In a surprising upset, an Ohio candidate for the 11th district who was backed by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) lost to Cuyahoga County Councilwoman Shontel Brown during the special House primary election this week.

On Tuesday, August 3, former Ohio State Senator Nina Turner conceded the special election race to Shontel Brown. Brown led Turner by 4,380 votes and is projected to win the general election against Republican Laverne Gore in November. While a Democrat is likely to stay in this position, it’s an enormous downturn for the radical “Squad” to have lost a race where they had thrown in their support. Perhaps this shows the beginning of the end for the radical Democrats.

The Election Center shared Brown’s projected victory early Tuesday night:

Brown received a lot of support from the local Jewish community, as well as two Democratic organizations that support Israel. In her victory speech, Brown thanked many groups for their “collaborative” efforts in getting her to where she is, vowing to be a public servant for all who she’s likely to serve if she wins the general election in November.
