We recently moved to Maryland and we're all set to get this thing popping. Gov. Hogan is out so looking for that new blood. What's up in your neck of the woods?

That sounds strategically Republican in how early and far from the actual General election. Diabolical!

I've always been NPA so I don't get to vote in the primaries.

Governor, Lt. Governor and the statewide cabinet positions. DeSantis is running for re-election. I wonder what it would do to his presidential hopes if he lost the race for Governor. Because right today, I think he would beat 45 and get the GOP nomination.

Also Marco Rubio's up for re-election. I'm not sure there's a more spineless legislator out there. I would love to get him out of office.

to Shontel Brown.

Can the more progressive wing then the progressive wing stop trying to force this woman down the people of Ohio's throat and move on?

I think my biggest issue with Progressives, in general, is the savior complex and falling for the notion that the nation needs any one candidate. If your Candidate loses, move on and find a better candidate.

Not this OP but this:

https://twitter.com/DannyVegito/status/1521310822479417349

FOlks need to understand that it isn't voting versus any other action (e.g., protesting). VOting is the bare minimum. You have to vote AND do all the other stuff.

If you are complaining about doing something that takes a few hours one day out the year, why should we think you would do all the other stuff that it requires to affect change?

excuse there?

How again is she the progressive preferred candidate?

How many times does she have to lose before yall realize she might not be the one?


You can't Primary the Parties incumbent and run by attacking the democractic party, and also cry when the party doesn't support you. That's ass backwards.

Seems like that would make her the wrong choice for an endorsement from the Congressional Progressive Caucus.

A party of robots is worthless, one maga cult is enough. It' called the Progressive Caucus not the Establishments Dems part 2.

Black clergy really said this

"She has never said, I am Shontel Brown and I approve this message. Now if somebody else ran an ad, that’s on them,” said Rev. Marvin A. McMickle, Ph.D of Antioch Baptist Church. “In the church, that’s what we call bear false witness.”

No one with Turners views stands a chance with Jewish voters. As we’ve seen it play out twice now.

And I watched the whole clip of the clergy. You don’t want go down this road

How’s the local politics out in Moldova these days though?

best of luck to Nina on her presidential candidacy though

represents the large percentage of Black voters in that district ? You good with that ?

So Brown is the only who can win in a district with the highest number of Democrats in that state ?

black people are either dumb or completely paid off if they vote for someone other than their chosen 'progressive' mascot.

theres very little difference from them and the conservative 'democratic plantation' talking points.

and Reeq co-signing the talking point if you question large sums of money pouring into a campaign it means you think the worst about Black people.

Btw Nina Turner is Black.

That kind of money in any campaign no matter who the candidates are deserves a closer look, anybody no matter what color, can fall for the okie doke.

You after the Dave attack

"people laughed off our concerns for stand up comedians too"

Dave was attacked by someone with a mental illness, it had nothing to do with a "dark path" or precedent being set.

Now here you are in this thread talking about

"They'll blame it on outside money...AS if"

Don't stop keep going.

She was taken out of context and the money did the rest. Totally understandable folks would fall for it. If you pay attention you'd see... but a lot of people don't.

Also, the outside money came from millionaires(GOP) to Brown's campaign... would love to hear the benefits to that. Small donations from across the country given our current national predicament don't make me think she's the problem here.

realize she ain't the one?

Or to put another way, why get so caught up on one candidate who doesn't seem able to win. Why not find a candidate with the qualities you like about Nina Turner, but who can win?

Seems like a certain wing of progressives have a savior complex and seem to think there are only these chosen people who can save the country.

I saw someone say a couple of days ago, "Ohio Needs Nina Turner. America Needs Nina Turner". That's cult of personality talk to me.

Your rhetoric is disingenuous at best. We're not looking for a savior. We're looking for someone who will do the hard work. She is more qualified than most in my experience.

Why do you think she can't win. It's not because she's not likable to anyone. It's because she's been marked by power as a threat. Anyone we would choose would get the same treatment if they raise they're profile enough. Individuals like her don't grow on trees that will take the slings and arrows. Even AOC has spoken about the weight on her mental health given the pressures. Anyway, you can keep naysaying, but I highly doubt you've done a fraction of the work Nina's put in. Keep going, SISTA!

In response to Reply # 29


  

          

I think what's disingenuous is that there is a wing of progressives who think if you win its because you are compromised, and if you lose its because you are a threat to the power that be. That sentiment eats its own as you can see in the article above and this one below which attacks the Progressive Caucus for not backing Turner for being a Progressive in Name Only.

https://www.salon.com/2022/04/27/progressive-caucus-goes-full-pino-why-dumping-nina-turner-is-a-turning-point/

Like that's how crazy right wingers talk. Openly adopting their "In Name Only" talk.

Some times the person you think is best doesn't hit with enough people to win and you have to move on.

I loved Elizabeth Warren, thought she had the best policies and would govern best. The rest of the Country and Dem party didn't see her that way. Instead of saying the system is rigged (sounds familiar) I as a grown up just had to accept that my preference was palatable to enough people to win and move the F on. Because that's what grown ups do. I learn that lesson in 84 when Jessie Jackson lost.

In response to Reply # 38


  

          

hes won statewide elections for almost 40 years.

nina turner cant even win an election in her own congressional district.

theres no evidence she can win *any* election against a human opponent.

she couldnt even win a city council seat.

and the one state senate seat she held...she was appointed to when someone else resigned. then she ran unopposed for it.

and then we all know what happened when she ran for a congressional seat (twice).

shes a favorite of national 'progressives' outside of ohio who are gullible/indoctrinated enough to keep burning their money for her.

but shes win-less at home among the voters that have known her best whenever they have another actual option.

that should tell you something.

For 20 years and complaining the system is rigged.

I mean I don't think there are really Biden Stans in all honesty.

Biden won because he was the least offensive to the broadest swath of people. Some times it bes like that.

I'm not against Nina Turner running, I'm questioning why Nina Turner fans keep supporting her.

In fact, Joe Biden endorsed Nina's opponent weeks before the election. Don't come back with she said bad things about Biden either. Why does he care if there's no big difference between the two.

I still to this day wonder what Hillary got accomplished while in Congress that makes her accomplished. Can you enlighten us, Reeq? Also, it's the only seat she's ever won and that was because of her name and Bill's influence.

78. "Feels worth being precise about, no?"
In response to Reply # 77


          

The 1876 election is the only one where a candidate won a majority of the vote and didn't win the electoral college and the results were genuinely transformative (bad transformative, to be clear) for our country in concrete political ways.

Given the frequency of general election victories and electoral college losses in this century, the difference between majority and plurality doesn't seem like just semantics to me. Grousing about the electoral college has been growing since Bush/Gore, and Clinton taking 50+ percent in 2016 could have given that movement real traction. It's hardly certain, obviously, but the compromise of 1876 was - again - actual concrete political change because of that dissonance. Instead, we just get more grousing.

In response to Reply # 25


  

          

who was rejected by almost *70*% of their own voters!

thats a *supermajority* of local citizens that dont want anything to do with her.

the persistent stanning *is* borderline cult mentality.

and its all because she supported saint bernard.

just remember that nina stans were the same folks who stanned tulsi gabbard based solely on her endorsement of saint bernard too.

cult loyalty makes you ignore blatant reality.

You’re not wrong, but you are no better.

You stan just as hard as any Bernie bro or Tulsi
supporter or Nina superfan.

You can’t have a real convo about the failures of
this administration.

When it was Trump, you were Johnny on the spot
with posts. Now you’re a ghost, unless you are
trying to rehash 16 or something.


You have more in the chamber for Nina fucking
Turner or fucking Jacobin than anything related
to actual Dems in power. Quiet as a church
mouse now that your guy/team is fucking up.

Roe gutted. Voting rights gutted. Outside of vaccines,
COVID stance earily similar, nothing on immigration,
Etc.

You don’t want to talk about any of that.

Let’s be honest you’d rather dunk on Nina then talk
about your cult failing to try anything at all to
fight the GOP.

Your guy out here giving deficit speeches when
democracy and rights are literally under attack.

Clyburn out here campaigning for a pro-lifer today!!! Lol

You’re the guy who comes around to tell us all Eric
Adams is on point and that it was fake news that
Afg withdrawal would hurt your boy.

As literal Democrats in power do nothing
to stop the fascists you are in here parroting
blue check jokes about the email lady trying
to blame anyone but your…cult.

Blindly worshipping one side, no self reflection,
no honesty, focusing only on dunking on the
other side is a bad/sad look.

Weather you worship Saint Bernard or
Individual 1 or these fickle ass Democrats.

You are no better.

There’s a reason dudes think you’re an op.

If you really aren’t getting paid, you should be.

Hahahaha please tell us more about blindly
following something. Please.

another post and your *only* reply is some creepy grievance letter to me.

literally every person in here at least has a reply or two stating their own opinion about something relevant to the actual topic at hand.

but all you contribute is your opinion of me.

obsessed.

i dont know which one of my past replies scarred you but you should be over it at this point. as a grown man (im assuming).

this shit is unhealthy.

and im done rewarding your unhinged behavior with my attention.

this is my last reply to you.

seek therapy.

This will go on forever. I don’t see it stopping

Their dear leader didn’t get the nomination so the rest of us have to deal with the consequences of that. All politics is supposed to be local. But your avg Bernie bro is too busy focused on races completely outside of the districts they live in

A win for cisneros or turner would be a win to spite us. And that’s really all this is at the end of the day.


Fuck these clowns

In response to Reply # 51


  

          

A faction would connote that there's a minority that want the policies that Nina espouses. If you look at polls, you'd find that her policies are actually popular. When the Shontel Brown's of the world take money from Republican interests you already know that it runs counter to these progressive democratic ideals.

You may need to re-examine your stance and gain a better understanding of things. Your words don't reflect that you do. Definitely a broad problem I see here.

56. "She had millions more in money than Brown"
In response to Reply # 25


  

          

She has a nasty attitude and lacks the ability to coalition build which is vital in any legislative role. She is very obviously anti-Democratic, and has on multiple occasions talked down about regular Democrat voters. Plus she's said some borderline anti-Semitic things, which doesn't help when her district has a statistical significant Jewish population (I'm pretty sure at least)

She's a weak candidate with weak policies and she doesn't have the appeal of an eccentric old man like Bernie nor the youth or conventional (uhmm Eurocentric looks/appeal) like some of the squad.

Having a difficult time confirming if that's truthful or not.

I do know that Shontel's campaign received about 3 million in the last weeks to flood her coffers. I didn't hear anything similar for Turner's campaign.

The twitter link info doesn't comport with the 3~ million she received in the final weeks. If that's true then it seems more like they were on par as far as war chests. Millionaire's/Billionaire's appear to have tampered with this race at the last minute. It's legal, but it doesn't appear to be the "will of the people" when we know the affects of huge sums on races.

69. "I'm confused, what 3 million?"
In response to Reply # 61


  

          

Your link and my link show very close final numbers, so I highly doubt she received an extra 3 million hidden somewhere. Her total taken in was 3.9 million, so where did she hide almost an additional 100% of her official raised amount?

I'm pretty sure that this infusion of money I'm referring to is dark money. It's not part of the campaign fund. I'm sure ya'll know about that though.

unless there is a miracle.. and oddly enough the Supreme Court leak of Roe vs Wade may indeed be that miracle, its going to be ugly in the midterms

I mean.. keep laughing and celebrating establishment Dems winning battles but it sure feels like we are losing the war

This is a set back in the long march towards justice. My pops use to say we are seeing the desperate reaction to the death gasps of white supremacy 30 years ago. Time is on our side, not there's.

Even the disagreement here isn't about substance but timing.

.... solely for my community the same way they do literally everybody else. Research Jim Crow's actions from one week prior to now before responding. Not voting on the national level until a candidate appears with my interests at heart.

It damn sure wont be for those ambulance chasing job coveting congressional black caucus shills that were bought off... Nor for their Republican counterparts lead by disdain for black society having Candace Owens.

Got a few candidates I'm following nationally in hopes of cultivating them with support.

I might vote for a DA or sheriff locally on behalf of future black youth. Other than that GTFOH encouraging me to vote to save everybody. I got a Kameelah ass list of reasons not to vote after everything we watched happen...

No empathy for white misery (c) BDot
