Maybe Ohio still has a significant number of voters who are racist. Maybe there are other factors. I’m not going to discount what she says based on her failure to win secretary of state.
She was very well spoken when defending Sanders on a Joy Reid clip I saw. It’s true we don’t know exactly what anyone would get passed if they won given we don’t know what the 2021 or 2023 House or Senate are going to look like, but backing Sanders ideas for Medicare for All, free public college tuition, support for Green jobs, and an actual labor and environmental critique of trade deals would make a lot more sense than backing someone who happened to serve as VP for Obama. I’m hoping all voters including whatever demographic like black women will get a lot more educated before next year. Also, I’m solidly in favor of what I interpret as Bernie’s strategy: for sure be well educated on special issues that affect different minorities to a greater degree such as African Americans and policing, but push primarily for policies that help everyone (even rich people - we all breathe air and in many places it could be a lot better).
You said you didn’t want Democrats to spend a lot of time on a prisoner’s right to vote - I don’t want them to spend a lot of time on reparations for slavery which I see as completely unmanageable and an even bigger loser for the general than anything about prisoners voting. I’m not sure what Turner’s ideas are there but Sanders has said the right thing so far (which again is we push for the things that will help everyone and it will actually help African Americans more than any reparations bill that could ever get through Congress in 20 years).
