A GOP rising star wins in a Dem district
Hearty congratulations to up and coming young Republican Josh Mandel who won a second term as a state representative in Ohio. His race was marked by aspersions cast upon him by his Democratic opponent over his service as a Marine in Iraq and unpleasant remarks about his religious heritage.
I wrote about this issue and about Josh Mandel in the recent past. As the Republican Party looks to the future, people like Josh Mandel should be role models: young, intelligent, ethical, and devoted to their constituents and country. Especially notable has been Mandel's two victories in a district that leans heavily Democrat. He was able this time to beat off challenges from not only his opponent but a slew of Democratic interest groups (such as ACORN).
