Nina Turner's comments on Voting for Biden Two Years ago Loses her his Endorsement

Earlier today, President Biden released a statement endorsing Shontel Brown of Ohio over the expected candidate Nina Turner of Ohio in the Ohio Congressional Race. Many suspected Biden would endorse Nina as she is the acclaimed “more progressive” candidate.
“Shontel Brown has been an ardent advocate for the people of Ohio and a true partner in Congress. We need leaders like Shontel to help continue the fight to respond to this pandemic, lower costs for working families, and rebuild the middle class. Shontel is committed to building a better America. I am proud to endorse Shontel Brown for Ohio’s 11th District in the U.S. House of Representatives.”
The two possibilities Biden was choosing from are in a contested race with both of the Democrats (Shontel and Turner) raising upwards of $600,000 in Q1 of 2022.
“I am thankful for the support of Joe Biden. From day one, I promised to work with the President and his administration to deliver for the people of Northeast Ohio and bring economic relief and quality health care to all Americans.”
Brown wrote in response
Many speculate that the reasoning for Turner not receiving Biden’s endorsement is the fact that just two years ago she claimed that voting for Biden was like: “It’s like saying to somebody, ‘You have a bowl of shit in front of you, and all you’ve got to do is eat half of it instead of the whole thing.’ It’s still shit.”
This is the second time Turner and Brown have faced each other in an election, with Brown beating Turner in a special election for Ohio’s 11th District in 2021.
