Dear Friend,

This year Democracy Now! is celebrating our 25th anniversary—that's 25 years of bringing you fearless, independent reporting. Since our very first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take government or corporate funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. If everyone who tunes into Democracy Now! signed up for a monthly donation of just $10, we could cover our operating costs for the entire year. Please do your part today. Right now, a generous donor will even DOUBLE your first monthly gift, which means it’ll go twice as far! This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to start a new monthly donation, please don’t delay. We’re counting on your support. Thank you and remember, wearing a mask is an act of love.
-Amy Goodman

Nina Turner Racks Up Endorsements Ahead of Ohio Special Election

HeadlineJul 28, 2021

The closely watched Democratic congressional primary in Ohio to fill the seat of Marcia Fudge is less than a week away. The race pits Nina Turner, who served as Bernie Sanders’s campaign co-chair, against Shontel Brown, the chairwoman of the Cuyahoga County Democratic Party. On Tuesday, the Women’s March threw its support behind Turner in its first-ever electoral endorsement. It came one day after Warrensville Heights Councilmember Walter Stewart announced he was switching his support from Brown to Turner.

Walter Stewart: “Nina Turner is the one that’s going to take us and who has the vision, the know-how, the experience, and she has the sincerity and heart to carry us forward.”

Over the weekend, Congressmember Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez campaigned in Ohio for Nina Turner, who also just picked up the endorsement of Congressmember Jamie Raskin. Shontel Brown has received the backing of Hillary Clinton and the Congressional Black Caucus Political Action Committee.
