Progressives suffered yet another embarrassing setback Tuesday, when a former top adviser to Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders lost a primary battle for an Ohio Congressional seat to a member of the establishment. It turns out leftists just aren’t that popular.

It’s a tale as old as time by now: Nina Turner, the pro-green new deal, Medicare-for-All, “reimagine” police and pro-$15 minimum wage progressive garnered all the Twitter attention and grassroots donations from the Sanders-aligned democratic socialist movement on the left. Her opponent, Cuyahoga County Councilmember Shontel Brown, went the traditional route, securing establishment endorsements and raising money from traditional players.
