As Chuck Berry once foretold, “You Never Can Tell” – 1964.
Although she was vaunted by the often stupidly-vociferous Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), candidate Nina Turner was handily defeated by the incumbent Rep. Shontel Brown (D-Ohio) in the 11th District primary in Ohio.
Prior to the customary endorsements, Brown had most of the establishment Left bolstering her campaign. Conversely, Turner, a latch-key child for Democratic Party hanger-on Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ 2016 and 2020 presidential campaigns, was backed by many from the radical left-wing.
The upshot is that for the thinking people of the world, the ink of such caricatures of leadership the Left sees in AOC is now running down their faces.
“I’m proud to have @AOC’s endorsement. Rep. Ocasio-Cortez is a leader in the fight for climate justice, workers rights and building a multi-generational, multi-racial working-class democracy. Together we will change what is possible in our political system. Thank you, sister,” Turner tweeted earlier this week.
And while they may indeed make changes together, it will not occur in the halls of Congress as Ocasio-Cortez’s previously golden stamp of approval fell short.
Fox News listed all the paper tigers the former bartender has helped in some way:
“She supported Rep. Cori Bush, D-Ohio, who beat former Rep. Lacy Clay, D-Mo., and Rep. Jamaal Bowman, D-N.Y., who unseated former Rep. Eliot Engel, D-N.Y. Ocasio-Cortez herself beat former Rep. Joe Crowley, D-N.Y., to enter Congress in 2018,” the outlet noted.
While Ohio’s 11th Congressional District is generally considered a secured seat for Democrats, it remains to be seen if there will be an upset. As the song says, it just goes to show “you never can tell.”
Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:
This should be very telling that a lot of Democrats are more moderate and tend to gravitate more towards the center both parties need to understand this.

I can’t think of anyone who will elect Nina Turner to any political office. How many times has she run and lost?

Maybe people are finally realizing that progressive policies & ideologies don’t work & sane people don’t want any part of them. So much for @AOC backing.

And on the contrary:
The candidate AOC backed about twelve hours before election day, after many, many days of early voting. Point being, she would have won or lost notwithstanding anything AOC did or didn’t do. AOC doesn’t have anything to do with this one.
