I am still trying to process that the black clergy [View all]

Thought we were all about electing Democrats. Nina admits she is running third party under our name.

It’s official! Sen. Nina Turner is running for Congress. She’s running for the seat vacated by Rep. Marcia Fudge, who Joe Biden has chosen as secretary of Housing and Urban Development. The People’s Party isn’t on the ballot in Ohio yet so she will have to run as a Democrat, but we can’t think of anyone better to win that seat and bring a friend of the People’s Party to Congress.


We are not The Peoples Party, we are The Democratic Party.

Let us be honest here, she is an admitted Stein supporter. She was asked to be Stein's VP. She campaigned for Jill.

I will give her points for honesty. She says outright that she is not a Democrat and a member of a third party.

These are her own words, not mine.

On DU we support Democrats. She has clearly stated she is not one. Huge mistake on her part. Huge mistake.
