    Josh Mandel is one of “The Power Line Pick Six” that you see featured on the right side of our home page. His selection was a no-brainer; he and Tom Cotton were the first two candidates we informally agreed on. Josh is a Marine Corps veteran who served two tours in Iraq and then as a State Representative. Currently, he’s the State Treasurer. Josh faces incumbent Senator Sherrod Brown, one of the very most liberal members of the Senate. Early polling showed Brown with close to a double digit lead. And yesterday, PPP released a poll that had Brown ahead...

    We've spoken previously about how Barack Obama is waging a war against the coal industry. Even though Candidate Obama openly told us that he aimed to bankrupt the industry, he has his toadie, former Ohio Governor Ted Strickland, traveling around the state making a fool of himself by insisting that Obama is actually a friend to the coal industry.  Recently, ultra-liberal Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) joined Obama in attacking the energy source that provides 86% of Ohio's electricity. Brown had a chance to join other Senators, including other Democrats, in getting rid of the EPA's new Utility MACT rule, which...

    Deep-pocketed groups supporting U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown or Republican challenger Josh Mandel have spent millions of dollars to beat up the other guy. Each side is constantly accusing the other of being out of touch with average Ohioans. But a $100,000 online advertising push launched today by Workers' Voice, the super political action committee affiliated with the AFL-CIO, aims to tug at the emotions of the put-upon Cleveland sports fan. The web ads depict Mandel, the Republican state treasurer, in ex-Cavaliers' star LeBron James' iconic pre-game pose under the tagline "Witness the Mandel investigation" -- a reference to the federal...

    Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel has cut Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown's lead to just six points in the latest Quinnipiac University poll, released Thursday morning. Brown leads Mandel 46 percent to 40 percent. The last time Quinnipiac released a poll on the race, on March 29, Brown led Mandel 46 percent to 36 percent. And a February Quinnipiac poll showed Brown up by 13 points, 48 percent to 35 percent. Brown leads Mandel narrowly among independent voters, 42 percent to 38 percent. In the previous Quinnipiac poll, Brown held a heftier lead of 46 percent to 28 percent among independents.

    GOP money floods battlegrounds, threatens Dems' hold on SenateBy Alexander Bolton - 05/01/12 05:00 AM ET Third-party groups allied with the Republican Party have vastly outspent Democratic incumbents and their backers in Senate battlegrounds. The disparity in advertising firepower threatens Democratic control of the Senate and could have an impact on the presidential race as well. Sen. Sherrod Brown, a first-term Democrat from Ohio, has been the primary target of outside groups, which have outspent his allies by a ratio of 10-1 this election cycle.

    Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel says that as a U.S. senator he would fight any attempts by the Republican establishment to focus on social issues over jobs and the economy. The 34-year-old candidate said during an interview Wednesday with The Associated Press that he believes all elected leaders should be focused on "jobs, jobs, jobs." "Whether someone is running for president of the United States, U.S. senator, state representative or dog catcher, the focus of elected leaders today should be on job creation and sustainable economic growth," he said. Dubbed an "absentee treasurer" by his critics, Mandel said he's improved the...

    Fellow Conservatives: I'm writing to give you a brief update on the U.S. Senate race in Ohio and the amazing progress made by our endorsed candidate, Josh Mandel (R-OH). Liberal incumbent U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) is in deep trouble. According to a recent poll conducted by a Democratic polling firm, less than half the voters in the Buckeye State want to re-elect him even though he's almost universally known. The poll also shows growing momentum for Josh Mandel (40%) against an increasingly vulnerable Sherrod Brown (48%). Mandel has already closed this race down to a single-digit gap (-8%), which...

    Today the Cleveland Plain Dealer announced the resignation of Connie Schultz, wife of Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH). Schultz had come under fire recently for attending a Tea Party rally near Cleveland at which her husband’s likely opponent in 2012, Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel, was a featured speaker. Schultz was spotted videotaping Mandel’s speech, but she conspicuously neglected to mention in her article that Mandel was even at the rally. (Read the details in my previous diary). Once news about Schultz’s covert-op became known, the Pulitzer prize winning journalist and 18-year veteran of the Plain Dealer issued a breathless apology, claiming...

    Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel has been attacked by liberals who claim he has paid more attention to campaigning than his daily office duties. A quick look at all the cost saving and fiscally responsible new policies enacted by Mandel already, easily disproves Democrat claims. Ohio's treasurer produced $400,000 in savings by the end of the fiscal year and is just getting started. Making the office run more efficiently and economically for the benefit of the taxpayers is an ongoing goal for Mandel. In one fell swoop he saved approximately $100,000 per year when he updated the antiquated office deposit procedure....

    National political parties have a test for potential candidates: Do they have what it takes to raise eye-popping amounts of money? Josh Mandel has passed that first test, and moves on with honors. The Ohio treasurer, barely in office seven months, raised $2.34 million in his initial foray into a U.S. Senate race, according to preliminary figures that he'll finalize in a filing with the Federal Election Commission this week. It takes more than money to win a Senate seat, and the election isn't until November 2012. But Mandel, a 33-year-old Republican whose youthful appearance is tempered by his two...

    State Treasurer Josh Mandel has asked for a probe into whether banks manipulated foreign exchange rates charged to Ohio public pension funds and the state's injured-worker insurance, potentially costing pensioners and businesses tens of millions of dollars in the past 12 years. In a letter yesterday requesting that Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine launch the probe, Mandel said he is concerned that the banks might have engaged in improper currency-trading practices "to maximize the banks' profits, at the expense of Ohio public servants, businesses and taxpayers." State lawmakers have been debating ways to shore up the long-term financial stability of...
