Here’s what fellow MoveOn members in Ohio’s 11th District had to say about why they support her:

“Nina Turner has served our community with passion and expertise. She advocates strongly for what she believes in. She will always have my vote.” –Shawn J., Euclid, OH

“Ms. Turner has proven to be a strong advocate and supporter of policies to enhance the quality of life for all people in this country. We sorely need her energy and clear vision in the U.S. Congress.” –Brenda S., Cleveland, OH

“We need MORE progressives in Congress, and Nina would be a great addition to The Squad.” –Kelly B., Cleveland, OH 

 

Nina Turner has worked tirelessly in Ohio and across the country to champion these progressive values and to put pressure on our elected leaders to pass progressive legislation. Nina will prioritize creating a national health insurance program that provides everyone in America with comprehensive coverage, raising the minimum wage, and building a country that works for all of us, not just the wealthy and well connected.

“We need more leaders like Nina Turner in Congress, and Ohio MoveOn members agree that her tenacity and dedication to fighting for working-class Ohioans will make her a strong congresswoman,” said Rahna Epting, executive director of MoveOn Political Action. “Ms. Turner has worked hard throughout her career in Ohio politics as a champion for fair labor, housing, and women’s rights. From serving Ohioans as city councilor and state senator to advocating for progressive values on the national stage, Nina Turner has shown she’s more than ready to serve in Congress and push to create an America that works for everyone.”
