Mandel Finally Supports Jobs!

*  After weeks of no response, Josh Mandel, Treasurer for Ohio, and a candidate for Senate, has finally endorsed the idea of having 4,000 new jobs in Ohio.  Could he have waited a little longer?


...In September, Mandel said he would have to “learn more about” the plant before taking a position.
That earned him criticism from Democrats who said his answer indicated a lack of knowledge about a proposal with huge economic implications for the state.

“It’s disturbing that Josh Mandel knows so little about Ohio that he wasn’t ready to admit 4,000 jobs coming to our state would be a good thing right off the bat,” said Justin Barasky, a spokesman for the Ohio Democratic Party.....

Let me remind you that Josh Mandel still has not filed his required personal financial disclosure with the U.S. Senate.  It was due on May 15th.

***  Do you wonder when the Republicans in the House of Representatives will start to discuss job creation?  Is it possible that they won't do anything unless and until they elect a Republican as President?  Considering the Republican candidates, that might not happen.
