First 2018 Senate EndorsementWednesday, December 7, 2016
We have some very good news to share with you today.
Ohio State Treasurer Josh Mandel (R-OH) has announced that he will challenge incumbent Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) in 2018.
Sherrod Brown is on our list of 12 vulnerable Senate Democrats and we could not ask for a better candidate to challenge him than Josh Mandel.
Josh Mandel is a true conservative, he has widespread grassroots support throughout Ohio, and he can raise the money and run the kind of campaign necessary to defeat Brown in the general election.
We have set a goal of raising $100,000 for the Mandel campaign through SCF by this time next week. Please help us reach this goal.
SCF will pay all processing and fundraising costs so Josh Mandel can spend 100% of your donation building his campaign.
ABOUT 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 serving his second term as the state treasurer in Ohio.
As city councilman, Mandel led the fight for the first property tax rollback in his city’s history. In the state legislature, he stood up to the teacher’s unions to expand school choices for children with special needs. And as state treasurer, he has cut spending and made state government more transparent.
Time and time again, Mandel has fought for our principles, even when it meant standing up to leaders in his own party like Governor John Kasich (R-OH).
He has a proven record of results and he’s someone conservatives in Ohio and across the nation can count on to do the right thing.
I know that the last election just ended and it may be a lot to ask for you to support another candidate so soon, but this is very important and I truly hope you will donate to Josh Mandel today.
Senator Sherrod Brown will not be easy to defeat. He has nearly $3 million in the bank already and will get the full support of every liberal in the country.
And we’re hearing rumors that the GOP establishment is working hard to recruit their own candidate, which will make the race even more expensive.
We need to act now to quickly raise money to help Josh Mandel win the nomination and go on to defeat Sherrod Brown.
Supporting Josh Mandel against Sherrod Brown early in the 2018 election cycle is one of the best ways to keep the Democrats on defense and to completely drain the Senate swamp.
Thank you for your generous support. We will keep you informed of our progress in this important Senate race.
