Go, Nina, Go!

It’s official. Nina Turner is running for an open congressional seat, representing Cleveland. The current representative, Marcia Fudge, is leaving to serve in Biden’s cabinet.
That should light a fire under congress’s ass. I don’t know anything about her opponents, but I love Nina. She’s an ardent Berner and a hell of a great public speaker. Bernie has endorsed her, as have Corey Bush and Ro Khanna, according to one story I read. So, the DNC will probably be working against her. Still, she is wildly popular with Sanders supporters, so she’s got a built in base.
She will be a strong voice for Medicare for All, and I think progressives should really make that a litmus test.

That’s the whole blog for tonight. I will be following this story.
