Tea Party Express Proudly Endorses Ohio U.S. Senate Candidate Josh Mandel

“The perfect candidate to replace Sherrod Brown, Washington’s most liberal senator”

Cincinnati, OH – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest tea party political action committee, proudly endorses Ohio State Treasurer Josh Mandel for U.S. Senate, This is the organization’s fourth Senate endorsement this election cycle.

Chairman of the Tea Party Express, Amy Kremer, said, “It is the focus of the Tea Party Express to take conservative control of the U.S. Senate, and we are proud to announce our endorsement of Treasurer Josh Mandel in Ohio’s U.S. Senate race. Josh is the perfect candidate to replace Sherrod Brown, Washington’s most liberal senator according to National Journal.

“Sherrod Brown is grossly out of touch with the citizens of Ohio and Americans across the nation. Brown has consistently voted for more spending like ObamaCare and the failed $800 billion stimulus while ignoring the nation’s $15 trillion debt and growing budget deficit. We need conservative legislators in Washington who understand the dire fiscal situation of our nation and who are willing and able to fix it. As State Treasurer, Josh Mandel was recognized for successfully implementing conservative investment strategies and sharp management of the state’s finances. While our nation under Obama’s leadership was receiving a credit downgrade, Ohio received a credit upgrade thanks to Mandel!

“However, on top of getting our fiscal house in order, we must implement policies that encourage economic growth. Mandel not only campaigns as a conservative, he has the courage to legislate as one. As a city councilmember, Mandel successfully led the charge for one of the state’s only property tax rollbacks ever. He has been a proponent of oil and gas exploration in Ohio that could create up to 200,000 new jobs and has shown commitment to improving the business climate by cutting taxes and letting taxpayers keep more of their hard-earned money,” Kremer concluded.

Mandel is added to a distinguished list of Senate endorsements from the Tea Party Express for the 2012 election, including Attorney General Jon Bruning in Nebraska, Treasurer Richard Mourdock in Indiana, and former Solicitor General Ted Cruz in Texas.
