Meet 36 year old Josh Mandel who served 8 years in the United States Marine Reserves with two tours in Iraq as a Marine intelligence analyst. He has served in the Ohio legislature and is currently State Treasurer. It is accurate to describe Mr. Mandel as a Constitutional conservative who is strong on family values and national defense. He is right on the issues and right in his values. Josh is married, his wife is Ilana.
The 2012 U.S. Senate election in Ohio is a high stakes high profile contest. Democrat Senator Sherrod Brown is considered vulnerable by both Democrat and Republican establishments. His voting record is among the most liberal in the United States Senate. He is called a “far-left” Senator who is influenced by New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and Senator Al Franken of Minnesota.
With some 15% undecided, Mandel is about 8 points behind. Put in the context of his track record, don’t against him. He won his legislative seat in a district 2:1 Democrat. Then with no statewide name recognition, Mr. Mandel won the election to Ohio State treasurer. He is endorsed by Senator DeMint and has a Congresswoman Bachman-like titanium spine—or more simply, Josh Mandel is a marine:
The Democrats do not plan to lose; they have huge money pouring into Ohio. Republicans, sensing that Josh is a winner, are also there with money. You can, as I have, contribute too. Make your contribution here. Josh Mandel can—and must—win. Perhaps there is nothing more important in this critical election than prayer. I ask you to pray for Josh, his family and this campaign right through election night. If you live in Ohio, volunteer. It is certain you will benefit the most—even more than the campaign.
