Ohio's 11th congressional district

Incumbent U.S. Representative

Marcia Fudge

On December 8, 2020, it was announced that Marcia Fudge would resign from her seat in the United States House of Representatives if confirmed by the United States Senate to serve as the United States Secretary of Housing and Urban Development in the Biden administration. Based on the Constitution of Ohio, the governor of Ohio, Mike DeWine, is responsible for calling a special election to fill out the remainder of Fudge's seventh full term (eighth term overall) in Congress.[1][2][3][4]

Per Ohio law, depending on the exact timing of Fudge's confirmation process, the primary will likely be held on either May 4, 2021 or August 3, 2021 (both concurrent with regularly-scheduled primaries), with the special general election held on either August 3, 2021 or November 2, 2021.[5]

Democratic primary

By early January 2021, former state senator Nina Turner, Cuyahoga County councillor Shontel Brown, and former Cleveland city councillor Jeff Johnson had all announced their campaigns. Turner has been perceived as the progressive candidate in the race, while Brown is thought of as a moderate. Johnson portrayed himself as ideologically in between the two other candidates.[6] By the middle of February 2021, by which former state senator Shirley Smith and former state representative John E. Barnes Jr. had entered the primary, Turner and Brown were considered the frontrunners, with Turner having raised $650,000 to Brown's $40,000.[7] Upon entering the race, Smith attacked Turner for her ties to left-wing activist groups and Brown for her ties to the Cuyahoga County "machine", while Barnes Jr. touted his legislative experience.[8] On February 19, The Plain Dealer Editorial Team called on Brown to resign as Cuyahoga County Democratic Party chair in order to avoid conflicts of interest.[9]
