111. Katie Porter Lost My Support When She Endorsed and Campaigned for Nina Turner
Tue Apr 2, 2024, 08:22 AM
Apr 2

when Shontel Brown ran for re-election in 2022. I would never support anyone who aligns themselves with Nina Turner. Porter's reaction to her loss to Schiff is exactly what I would expect from her. I'm sure she was shocked that she did so poorly.

It is normal for her to be wrong. nt BootinUp Mar 31 #1
She doesn't get attention supporting the Dems, but being a Democratic Party Contrarian she sure does. TheBlackAdder Apr 1 #52
