BREAKING “Enthusiastic” Clinton Supporter Switches Toward Sanders
This evening, Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign was dealt a devastating blow when Nina Turner a top Democratic Party official in Ohio endorsed Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).
According to The Plain Dealer:
“The move comes as a surprise – and a blow for Clinton. Turner had been among her most enthusiastic cheerleaders in the Buckeye State and nationally. She was involved early with the Ready for Hillary super political action committee that promoted Clinton as a presidential candidate before the former U.S. secretary of state launched her campaign.
Turner spoke last fall in New York and earlier this year at a Cleveland fundraiser for the now-defunct organization. In June, Turner spoke at a grassroots-organizing event for the Clinton campaign in Cleveland. She also had served on the board of Correct the Record, another pro-Clinton super PAC but recently severed ties.”
Adding salt to the wound:
