Josh Mandel Inches Closer Towards Another U.S. Senate Run

In 2012, Ohio state Treasurer Josh Mandel decided to take on Senator Sherrod Brown (D) in what would turn out to be one of the mostly closely watched senatorial races in the country.

Mandel, who served in the U.S. Marine Corp from 2000-2008, was considering a underdog because President Obama was at the top of the ticket that year,  and eventually lost to Brown, but only by a margin of 50.7-44.7 percentage points.

Mandel told the Shark Tank during one of Senator Marco Rubio’s senatorial campaign stops in Florida that he was considering another run for the U.S. Senate against Senator Brown, but that right now he was focused on “the presidential,helping Marco, and Portman.” 

Mandel said that “a lot of people” have “encouraged” him me to do so back in Ohio, adding that he would “ make a decision sometime after the presidential election.” 

People are hungry for a new generation of leadership, they want some fresh blood to shake up Washington

On his thoughts about Senator Brown, Mandel said the following:

He’s out of touch with Ohio, out of touch with America, and his policies are way to the left of where our state and are country are.  

I also think that there is a hunger for fresh ideas in Washington. That guy he’s been in Washington for two decades, he’s been in politics for four decades, and you are not going to change anything with someone like that.

Considering that he lost by only six percentage points in a presidential election year, Mandel’s chances of beating Sen. Brown are pretty good in a usually Republican-friendly mid-term election.
