Back in 2011, the Madison Project was one of the first PACs to endorse one of the rising conservative stars in American politics, Josh Mandel, for his run for United States Senate in Ohio.
Josh ultimately fell short in that race, losing 50-44 to incumbent Senator Sherrod Brown.
But 2018 is going to be different. In the interim years, Josh has served as the State Treasurer for Ohio, launching the still-expanding Ohio Checkbook program, which posts line-item level spending and salary data for local and state government to create more transparency on how taxpayer dollars are spent. His efforts have taken Ohio from #46 in transparency rankings to #1.
Rock solid on issues like the repeal of Obamacare, border security and shrinking the size and scope of government, Josh is primed for success in 2018 and we are happy to endorse him early in his run to capture Brown’s Senate seat.
