10. She ran against Shontel Brown

She was a surrogate for Bernie Sanders twice and former Ohio State Senator.

15. No

She ran for an open seat in 2021 against Shontel Brown and received about 44% of the vote and then primaries her in 2022 and lost with only about 30% . Shontel Brown is in the progressive caucus and a cosponsor for Medicare for All. Israel/Palestine was the major difference between the 2 candidates.

16. Then no. Nothing like if Nina Turner had won.

Summer Lee has emphasized her support over and over again for Joe Biden, including on her website -despite the couple of tweets that suggested otherwise. She will likely be one of the strongest supporters for his infrastructure bill should the Dems keep the house.

20. Apparently she's had a strong change of heart because her entire campaign has largely been about how

much she supports him and his agenda.

That's FAR from "not perfect". Why would a Dem do that?

21. Agreed and shame on her for ever saying that. However, since her entire campaign has been focused

around Biden's agenda and supporting it, I imagine she has likely had a change of heart.

And many are now willing to fight with him for all of our democratic values.

28. That's the old 12th I guess. This one is solidly blue.

From 538:


The Democratic primary in Pennsylvaniaís 12th Congressional District remains too close to call. There, progressive state Rep. Summer Lee holds a tiny 523-vote lead over establishment-backed Steve Irwin. Since this is an open, solidly blue seat, Lee was seen as one of progressivesí best chances to add to their numbers tonight. She looks like sheís in good shape, but we donít know how many ballots are outstanding and itís possible Irwin could close the gap.
