Mandel hopeful for political future

Republican Josh Mandel isn’t ready to write off his political future after his unsuccessful challenge to U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown last fall in one of the most bitter, closely-watched and expensive elections in the country.

Mandel confirmed this week that he plans to seek re-election as Ohio treasurer next year.

“Obviously it’s impossible to predict the future, but you know, I think the best course forward for me is just do a good job as state treasurer, which I believe we have been doing and I’ll continue to do,” Mandel said Thursday during a legislative preview session for journalists organized by The Associated Press.

Asked to reflect on the rancorous campaign and its potentially damaging effect on his political ambitions, Mandel rattled off a few Ohio politicians who he said bounced back after their “political obituaries” were written. He noted that George Voinovich had a double-digit loss in a 1988 Senate race before becoming governor and later U.S. senator.

Mandel said he’s glad voters will decide whether he’s re-elected treasurer, not politicians like the state party leaders.
