Episode 69 Audio: Nina Turner
After inspiring millions through her work as a campaign chair for Bernie 2020, Nina Turner has gone on to fight for the democratic-socialist vision of single-payer healthcare, student debt cancellation, and housing as a human right through two campaigns for a congressional seat in Ohio’s Eleventh District. She’s rejoining us on KK&F to talk about her political vision and work since she last came on the show.
Up against massive corporate donations funneled to her centrist opponent, Turner lost the first election, but she’s running again — and we talk about why this election is different. With a newly redrawn, more progressive district, Nina is reaching the right people with her vision of working-class empowerment. And she thinks she has a winning message for those who have shouldered the burden of COVID-era financial downturn. Proposing robust social support programs and a government built to fulfill the needs of everyday people, this message addresses what the residents of her district are looking for — and we can’t wait to see the result at the polls.
