This Republican is Running to Fill Sen. Portman’s Senate Seat

Republican Josh Mandel, a former Ohio state treasurer and Marine veteran who served in the Iraq war, on Wednesday became the first major candidate to jump into in the Buckeye State’s 2022 Senate race.

“Today I’m excited to announce that I’m running for U.S. Senate in Ohio,” Mandel wrote on Twitter.

Pointing to the on-going impeachment trial of former President Trump, Mandel emphasized that “Watching this sham impeachment has made my blood boil and motivated me to run. I’m going to Washington to fight for President Trump’s America First Agenda.”

“In Washington, I will pulverize the Uniparty – that cabal of Democrats and Republicans who sound the same and stand for nothing,” he vowed. “My candidacy is about standing up for working people, economic freedom and individual liberty. We must stop the far left’s assault on American values.”
