Nina Turner, a top Ohio Democratic Party official and former state senator from Cleveland, has announced that she is now endorsing presidential hopeful, Bernie Sanders, Cleveland.com reports.
"I'm very attracted by his message and his style -- and that he has held pretty much strong on his beliefs and the world is catching up with him," Turner said, noting that his positions on voting rights and wage issues stood out to her.
On her previous enthusiasm for the Clinton campaign Turner said, "Yes, I was out there, 'ready' [for Clinton], because I wanted to make sure Democrats were ready," Turner said. "I thought it was important to show that Democrats were ready to go right back at it for 2015 and 2016. This has nothing to do with the secretary."
