DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — At least one recent poll indicates Josh Mandel is gaining on democrat incumbent Senator Sherrod Brown.
Thursday morning, the republican started his day picking up an endorsement from Ohio Veterans United on behalf of the Romney-Ryan campaign.
2 NEWS' Pam Elliot spoke with him at our WDTN-TV studio about how he plans to take his belt-tightening ways to Washington after saving Buckeyes millions of dollars that you can read about in his
annual fiscal report.
Mandel blasted those including Senator Brown and republicans who supported the Wall Street bailout, but refused to say what he would have done with General Motors.
He did tell Elliot, "I have a vision for taking the Dayton area and taking some of these auto plants and former factories that used to be filled and filling them back up with Dayton area workers to make pipes and tubes and fittings for new manufacturing jobs here in the Miami Valley."
He vowed to protect automotive jobs and jobs at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. To save money he suggested closing some bases in Europe where American men and women are now serving stating, "We're not fighting the Nazis anymore."
