(HorizonPost.com) – In the state of Ohio, Senate seats are split between the two parties. Republican Rob Portman holds one, and Democrat Sherrod Brown holds the other. However, with the former’s declaration that he won’t seek reelection in 2022, a flood of people from across the political spectrum are expected to vie to replace him. Fellow Republican and experienced politician Josh Mandel threw his hat into the ring on Wednesday, February 10.

Mandel is an experienced politician, having served in the Ohio House of Representatives from 2007 through 2011 and as State Treasurer for two terms from 2011 through 2019. He’s also a vocal supporter of former President Donald Trump and believes that the second impeachment trial is a “complete sham” — his disgust is the driving force behind his candidacy. He proudly says he’ll be campaigning on the “America First” agenda.
The US Marine Corps (USMC) veteran, who served two tours in Iraq, has had some fiery words for what he has dubbed the “uni-party.” This refers to a group of Democrats and Republicans that he believes has the same and lack respect and regard for the Constitution in favor of social graces and political opportunity.
