In case any of the media missed it, the press packets for those covering Ohio’s delegation to the GOP presidential convention included a Columbus Dispatch article touting the recovery of Ohio’s economy and crediting it to John Kasich. And in case they missed the latest poll by the Dispatch, Senate candidate John Mandel was happy to tell them — and the entire Ohio delegation — about it.
Mandel pointed to a poll showing he and incumbent Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown are in a dead heat. He also claimed Brown has outspent hims, roughly $15 million to $11 million.
That bottom line does not take into account the super PAC money that has gone into making Ohio’s Senate race one of the most expensive in the history of the United States. There, Mandel supporters have a decided edge — about 5-1.
