... he is appearing with her... Bernie never listens to my advice, though. I said, for the last run, "Go for the Hillary voters, Bernie, you already have the Bernie voters."

It's hypocritical to complain about someone's out-of-state supporters when they have their very own slate of out-of-state supporters. I mean, it's not as though someone's words simply disappear... not in this day and age.

....(25% from California) whereas 52% of Brown's are from out of state.

Only 4% of Turner's contributions are from IN THE DISTRICT, 39% of Brown's are from within OH-11.

That doesn't sound like she's got a strong "base" of support, does it? It sounds to me as though she (and others) are looking for some sort of revenge on the Democratic party. Or perhaps there's a belief that this is "payback" for past perceived injustices (regardless of how ridiculous that belief may be).

All I know is this: Nina Turner is NO friend of the Democratic party. She supported and voted for Jill Fucking Stein when Hillary was running against Trump (bitter much, Nina?) and she refused to support Biden when he was running against Trump (still bitter, Nina?) and compared him to a "BOWL OF SHIT" (not once, but TWICE!!)

Me.

this Jill Stein supporter, hater of HRC, crude and rude about Rep Clyburn and finally...no supporter of our president. Enough of us being subjected to such things, hypocrisy and lies Enough.

I’ve liked Sanders in the past because he could be a useful thorn in the side of Congress, but now he is just a guy poking the hornet’s nest. I gave up on him when he brought Turner on board his team and I discontinued receiving his e-mails. He does still have an (I) after his name, so I question what he is doing in Cleveland supporting someone who is running as a Democrat! ( and we know Turner is not a true Dem anyway ). Also having Cornell West there?! When BS was no longer a candidate in 2016, West shifted his support to Jill F’n Stein. He is also known for his critiques of President Obama , calling him a “black mascot of Wall Street” and a “black muppet of corporate plutocrats “. There was enough hate and disrespect for the excellent man Obama from the racist Right ; we didn’t need to have it coming from extremists from anywhere else. No wonder the turnout for this gathering was paltry.

....are white.

OH-11 is now 53% Black, that crowd certainly doesn't reflect the demographics of the district.

The Senate has been in session since 11:00AM hammering out the final details of the Infrastructure Bill, debating amendments, and voting on them.

Was this really a good day to skip work to go to a rally?
