CLEVELAND, OHIO – Former Congresswoman, Mary Rose Oakar (OH-20) has announced her endorsement of Nina Turner in Ohio's 11th Congressional District primary. Her enthusiastic support comes on the heels of the Cleveland Plain Dealer's endorsement and following a flood of corporate and dark money interests into the Democratic primary.

The PD editorial board said via its endorsement, which was published in Sunday's print edition and at, the online affiliate of the PD, that Turner, 54, and whom the Plain Dealer also endorsed for last year's special primary election to replace Fudge, is the better candidate and that "we endorsed Nina Turner last year, and do so again this year."

A former Ohio senator and former Cleveland councilwoman, Turner faces current Congresswoman Shontel Brown as the May 3 Democratic primary nears.


Oakar was unwavering in her support of Turner

"Nina is a leader and that's what we need in greater Cleveland, a fighter for the people who is committed to lifting working families," said Oakar. "Nina will be tough and she will care, not just go along to get along. Nina Turner is the most qualified and capable person we can send to Congress. I would love to have her as my Congresswoman. I will be proud to have her represent me and my family."

Turner expressed her gratitude for Oakar's support, stating "Rep. Oakar's longstanding work and dedication to our district's working families is truly remarkable. I am humbled to have her continued support." and, the most read Black digital newspaper in Ohio and in the Midwest, and the most read independent digital news in Ohio. Tel: (216) 659-0473.
