Josh Mandel: Wrong for Ohio

* Josh Mandel, Ohio Republican and tea party poster boy, refused to answer more questions in an interview with the Youngstown Vindicator.

Despite being asked repeatedly about his opinion of the auto bailout that saved the American auto industry, Josh Mandel refused to answer honestly.


Asked a half dozen times using different scenarios, Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel, the Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate, wouldn’t give a yes-or-no answer as to whether he supports the $82 billion federal government bailout of the American auto industry.

During a Wednesday editorial board meeting with The Vindicator, Mandel was repeatedly asked the question....

....At the end of his interview, Mandel was asked about an incident Friday involving a person, working for the American Bridge 21st Century political action committee, videotaping him in an elevator. The video shows Mandel approaching the political tracker. A reporter for The Dispatch newspaper in Columbus was in the elevator and reported that Mandel also grabbed a monopod attached to the video camera....

Josh Mandel is just wrong for Ohio. 

> President Obama has worked for the middle class, respects the rights of women, and has promoted equality in our country. I'll be voting for President Obama, Sen. Sherrod Brown, and Democrats.
