US Sen. Sherrod Brown airs 1st TV ad in Ohio political fight

Published: Fri, April 27, 2012 @ 2:51 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Incumbent U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown is taking on his Republican opponent’s hiring practices at the state treasury in his first TV ad of the campaign.

The 30-second spot, called “How to Succeed,” began airing Thursday on TV and cable stations statewide.

It criticizes Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel for paying state salaries of between $90,000 and $150,000 to a former campaign manager, a college friend and a political aide. It notes the 26-year-old aide was made state director of debt management despite lacking finance experience.

Mandel’s campaign says Brown went negative to distract from his record. Brown’s campaign says outside groups have already spent $5 million on Mandel’s behalf attacking Brown, who is a former state secretary and congressman.

The contest is one of the nation’s most closely watched Senate races.

If you took everything that is heading in the wrong direction in Ohio, and all the damage the conservatives are doing to our countries social programs and diverse groups of people in America, rolled it all together, you would have Josh Mandel.

Fact. From Jan20 2009, the republican party did everything they could to drag this country down. They took orders from their leader, rushbo, to make Obama fail. Make America fail so that they can take the white house back in 2012.
How can you, in good conscience, support a party like that?

Do we have to rehash the Bush tax cuts/Iraq war that caused this mess? You like big wars? I like the nice,clean cheap libya approach. The quick, no soldiers killed method that took out bin laden.
The govt, spending, intrusion, didnt get any less with GW.

The GOP left a big, stinking pile of sh*t for Obama to clean up, they turned Clinton's surplus into a huge deficit, they fight against everything Obama tries to accomplish, then they complain he's not doing enough. How could anyone support THAT party?
