  • How Sherrod Brown Pleased The Communist Party (Newly discovered Brown editorial in Communist paper)

    Breitbart.com ^ | 30 Oct 2012 | KURT RAND
    Newly uncovered press items from the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) are raising concerns about how the CPUSA might be influencing Sherrod Brown’s policy stances. The CPUSA appears to believe it has a vested interest in the senator.  Prior to his public announcement of candidacy for the Ohio Senate seat, Brown exhibited affinity with the CPUSA by permitting an editorial he authored to be published in the communist paper, the People’s World.  In the piece, Brown argued that mild entitlement reforms passed in 2003 justified lamenting that “democracy crumbles under the cover of darkness.” Apparently, CPUSA agreed with the senator. In the midst of Brown’s first...

    CLEVELAND - The candidates in the combative campaign for Ohio's U.S. Senate seat faced off for the first time. Incumbent Democrat Sherrod Brown and Republican challenger Josh Mandel met at the Renaissance Hotel in Cleveland on Monday afternoon for the first of three debates. In the first few exchanges, Brown and Mandel traded barbs. "He hired political cronies to try to do his jobs," Brown said of Mandel. "He has failed for the middle class. He has failed for our state," Mandel said of Brown. The two candidates traded jabs and debated over several issues, including health care, the economy...

    Josh Mandel doesn't know how to quit. The State Treasurer, who turns 35 in two days, is a man to be respected, even at his young age. The Marine Corps veteran spent eight years in the military, including two tours in Iraq. As a City Councilman he pushed tax reformed and knocked on almost 20,000 doors in his campaign for the Ohio House of Representatives. Elected as Treasurer in 2010 by 14 points, he is now taking on Sherrod Brown, one of the most liberal members of the Senate. Coming from a large deficit, Mandel is only down by one....

    The New Republic ^ | 9/14/2012 | Eliza Gray
    Josh Mandel, the 34-year-old Ohio State Treasurer and Republican Senate candidate, is a nice Jewish boy from a nice Jewish family. (snip) For Republicans, this is all very good news. Real Clear Politics recently placed Democratic incumbent, Sherrod Brown, ahead of Mandel by a measly three points. Though Ohio’s 150,000 Jewish voters make up just 1.3 percent of the state’s electorate, they are a crucial part of the Democratic base. (Brown won 78 percent of the Jewish vote in 2006.) If Republicans shave off even just a small portion of those votes, it would be, in the words of Matt...

    CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story misstated how CAPE PAC sites are identified. Candidate sites are labeled as CAPE PAC sites in fine print at the top and bottom of each site. Noam Neusner, a former White House speechwriter for President George W. Bush, thought he had given $250 to GOP Senate candidate Josh Mandel. He hadn’t. Instead, Neusner was one of nearly 3,000 donors who stumbled onto a network of look-alike campaign websites that have netted more than $570,000 this year in what some are calling a sophisticated political phishing scheme. (UPDATE: Mystery PAC Look-Alike Websites Dissappear!) The...

    Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, is locked in a neck-and-neck battle with Treasurer Josh Mandel in the Ohio Senate race, according to a new poll released Thursday by the University of Cincinnati. Brown leads Mandel 48 percent to 47 percent in the survey, but the senator's advantage is within the poll's margin of error of plus-or-minus 3.4 percentage points. Five percent said they are undecided. The results stand in contrast to a Quinnipiac University/CBS News/New York Times poll released earlier Thursday, which shows Brown leading Mandel 48 percent to 41 percent. The Cincinnati poll also yields better results for the GOP...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Brown was thought to be in for a tough reelection race, in part, because his party was decimated in the state last cycle. Democrats lost five House seats, the governor's mansion and failed to pick up the open Senate seat in Ohio last November. But a new survey by Public Policy Polling showed Brown with a comfortable lead over his potential challengers. Former Secretary of State Ken Blackwell trails Brown by 51-33, Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor (R) loses to the Democrat, 50-31 and former State Sen. Kevin Coughlin (R) trails by a similar deficit. State Treasurer Josh Mandel (R) and...

    ...The 2004 presidential campaign is being fought as aggressively over the airwaves as it is on the hustings. With many states up for grabs, candidates and their allies are using tailored broadcast ads, like the DNC's Pittsburgh spot, which are also called "tracking" or "pre-buttal" ads. These spots, an advertising innovation this election, are prepared for specific markets and run around the time the opposing candidate makes a campaign appearance. Tracking ads are cheaper and easier to produce than national ads, but can be just as effective.... President Bush's campaign cut the first tracking ad, which coincided with a visit...
