Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel Outraises Sherrod Brown
Holy cow this is awesome. Ohio Treasurer and RedState endorsed Josh Mandel has out raised incumbent United States Senate Leftist Sherrod Brown.
Jim DeMint’s Senate Conservatives Fund also came out recently and endorsed Josh Mandel. Sherrod Brown, whose campaign strategy consists of moving as far left as possible to become the Alan Grayson of the Senate, has got to be soiling his underwear at this news.
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. . . .
He raised it in just three months, April through June. Mandel’s take eclipses the $1.5 million that incumbent Sen. Sherrod Brown, a Democrat, raised during the same period. Brown nevertheless has more in the bank — $3.5 million — because he raised money before this last quarter.
