Republican state Treasurer Josh Mandel is calling for a rematch with Democrat Sherrod Brown. Mandel wants Brown’s U.S. Senate seat. And he seems to be leaning on the momentum of Donald Trump.
Drain the swamp, sanctuary cities, radical Islam -- all Trump campaign talking points. And they were also major points in Josh Mandel’s video to announce he’s running for U.S. Senate.
“I will never back down from our enemies. I will never succumb to political correctness. And I will never forget that we are a nation founded on Judeo-Christian values,” said Mandel.
Mandel will need the support of Trump voters to beat well-known Democratic incumbent Sherrod Brown, who defeated Mandel in their first matchup in 2012.
Not only that, but Mandel is likely to face a strong primary contender in Congressman Pat Tiberi a long-time political ally of Gov. John Kasich.
