The Associated Press called the 11th District primary for Brown, D-Ohio, shortly before 10:30 p.m.
Both Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and President Biden jumped into the race at the last second. Biden announced his support for Brown last week, and Ocasio-Cortez backed Turner on Monday, the day before the primary.
But even before the endorsements, Brown had most of the establishment backing in the race while Turner, a top surrogate for Sen. Bernie Sanders‘ 2016 and 2020 presidential campaigns, was backed by many on the left.

The victory for Brown in the Cleveland-based district is a loss for Ocasio-Cortez, who has an effective record of endorsing Democratic primary challengers.
She supported Rep. Cori Bush, D-Ohio, who beat former Rep. Lacy Clay, D-Mo., and Rep. Jamaal Bowman, D-N.Y., who unseated former Rep. Eliot Engel, D-N.Y. Ocaio-Cortez herself beat former Rep. Joe Crowley, D-N.Y., to enter Congress in 2018.
But Turner won’t have that chance in 2022.
Brown previously beat Turner in a 2021 special election primary to fill the seat of former Rep. Marcia Fudge, D-Ohio, whom Biden chose as his Housing and Urban Development secretary.
Ohio’s 11th Congressional District is generally considered a safe Democratic seat.
