U.S. Sen. and 2008 presidential nominee John McCain is endorsing a fellow military veteran from Ohio in the race for U.S. Senate.
McCain visited Ohio on Monday to support Treasurer Josh Mandel. McCain says the 34-year-old Republican "represents the new generation of leadership" that the senator says is needed to control spending, improve the economy and boost national security.
Mandel is challenging incumbent Democrat Sherrod Brown. Brown's campaign criticizes Mandel's lack of experience and ill attention to his treasurer's job.
Republican State Treasurer Josh Mandel will take on Incumbent Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown this fall. Mandel easily won the G-O-P primary winning 62% percent of the total votes statewide. On March 12, 2012, Florida Senator Marco Rubio campaigned in Ohio for the Senate hopeful.
The following audio contains addresses from Mandel and Rubio to a crowd of 300 in the Berry Room located at Wright State University's Nutter Center.
In the week’s edition of PoliticsOhio, Emily McCord speaks to Ohio Public Radio’s Karen Kasler. A progressive think tank alleges that public money is being used to fund a campaign to support Senate Bill 5. Kasler reports on how they have connected the dots and on whether or not the assertion has legs. Also, she touches on a new website launched this week by Treasuer Josh Mandel and on his chances of a Senate run.
