Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel was expected to win and he won big.  He says he’s ready to take on Democratic Incumbent Sherrod Brown…and Mandel says he’ll have one message – jobs.  Mandel says Brown is part of the problem in Washington.

Mandel - The lines are going to be drawn very clearly between his record of being in political office since Richard Nixon was President and for two decades and my vision to go to Washington to shake the place up. 

But Brown supporter, Franklin County Clerk of Courts Mary Ellen O’Shaughnessy, says Mandel’s record shows he’s not ready for the job.

O’Shaughnessy - He’s a guy who barely set his foot in the treasurer’s office and then set his sights on this office.  You talk about people being mad at politicians? That’s blatant opportunism.

Both Brown and Mandel will have millions to run a campaign in the coming months.  Both already have millions in their campaign war chests.
