Rep. Shontel Brown (D-OH) has held on to her party's nomination in spite of stiff competition from a more liberal candidate, Nina Turner, in Ohio's 11th Congressional District.
Brown maintained the narrow lead she first established when the two went head to head last year in a special election in the Cleveland district. With 44% reporting, Brown was leading with nearly 64% of the vote. In 2021, Brown won with 50.2%, while Turner received 44%.

The incumbent will face the Republican nominee in the November election, but Brown will likely sail to victory due to the district's heavy Democratic skew.
Brown's win shows Democratic voters' continued preference for more centrist candidates, at least for now. She received an endorsement from President Joe Biden, as well the the Congressional Progressive Caucus.

Turner was endorsed by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and worked as co-chairwoman of his 2020 presidential run. She also heads his grassroots organization Our Revolution.
Turner outraised Brown, with over $6.5 million in her coffers, according to the most recent Federal Election Commission filings. Brown raised nearly $4 million.
