Brown’s opponent, former state Sen. Nina Turner, conceded in a speech on Tuesday night.

“Tonight my friends, we have looked across the promised land, but for this campaign, on this night, we will not cross the river,” Turner told her supporters from the stage. 

Brown’s win over Turner represents a major victory for the Democratic Party’s establishment flank in Ohio’s deep-blue 11th Congressional District as they seek to hold the line against progressives in Washington.  

The Cleveland-area district has become ground zero for the battle between the establishment and progressive flanks of the Democratic Party.

Turner and Brown were the clear frontrunners in the field of 13 candidates. Turners lead narrowed in the last few weeks of the campaign as Browns campaign and her allies spent more advertisements. Turners campaign frequently knocked Browns campaign for their support from outside groups, including the Democratic Majority for Israel PAC. 

Meanwhile, national progressive organizations, like Our Revolution and Democracy for America jumped into the race on Turners behalf.
