CLEVELAND (WJW) — Shontel Brown and Laverne Gore were triumphant in Tuesday’s Congressional primary election
The election determined one Democratic and one Republican candidate to appear on the November ballot to fill the vacant seat in Ohio’s 11th Congressional District. The position was previously held by Marcia Fudge, who is now the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development in the Biden administration.
On the GOP side, Gore defeated Felicia Washington Ross.
“We congratulate Laverne Gore on her hard fought victory in Ohio’s 11th Congressional District. While D.C. Democrats worsened the divide between left and further left, Republicans coalesced around a fighter for their communities and a champion for their values,” said RNC spokesperson Preya Samsundar.
“I want to roll up my sleeves and get to work to make sure we are delivering results for the people relief, for the people who need it the most,” Brown said. “We are celebrating today. I’m grateful for all the love and support, but I want to get up and do what I’ve always done and that’s work, work, work.”
“We are going to do great things together and all of you are on that list of helping us do this,” Turner told her supporters Tuesday night. “Until justice rings for all, justice rings for none.”
