Ohio is on our 2012 Watch List because it presents conservatives with a major pick-up opportunity. Incumbent Democrat Senator Sherrod Brown has an extremely liberal voting record and is running for re-election in a state that is trending Republican.
SCF endorses Republican Josh Mandel. Josh Mandel is a true conservative with an impressive record of accomplishment. He served 8 years in the Marine Corps Reserves, 3 years as a city councilman, 4 years as a state legislator, and is currently the Ohio State Treasurer. Not only can Josh Mandel defeat Sherrod Brown, he will also stay true to his principles once he's elected.
