Republican Senate candidate Josh Mandel plans to campaign across South and Eastern Ohio over the next two days.
His campaign says the Ohio treasurer plans to focus on energy policy in Appalachian Ohio visits. His first stop is at a Georgetown restaurant, in Brown County. Then he heads to Adams County, followed by other Southern and Eastern Ohio stops. Some details were still being worked out earlier this week.
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.
