Corrupt Fundraising Practices, Treasurer Boyce Can’t Outraise Josh Mandel

Josh Mandel reports nearly a 2.5:1 cash-on-hand advantage, even though Boyce has used the power of his office to push banks and financial services companies into donating heavily to his campaign.:

Building on his growing momentum and powered by his grassroots donor base, Marine Veteran and State Representative Josh Mandel (R-Lyndhurst) announced today that his campaign for State Treasurer reported more than $2.5 million cash on hand ? raising $393,000 since the last reporting period. Mandel, the challenger, maintains a nearly 2.5:1 cash advantage over incumbent Kevin Boyce.

?Today’s filing report is just another example of the overwhelming support we have received across Ohio,? said Mandel. ?Our message of integrity and fiscal responsibility is resonating with Republicans, Democrats and Independents who want real change in our state government. The fact that supporters so generously open their pocketbooks to help spread our message encourages me to work even harder,? Mandel continued.

Mandel earned his reputation as a grassroots campaigner in his first election for State Representative, knocking on 19,679 doors and wearing out three pairs of shoes. Continuing his energetic and grassroots style in the campaign for State Treasurer, Mandel has visited 80 of Ohio?s 88 counties and has traveled 87,418 miles across the state listening to the concerns of Ohioans.

Mandel has received more than 4,100 individual campaign contributions and this period received more than three times as many contributions as his incumbent opponent Boyce.

If Boyce wants to employ any more of his friends in his office, he better do it now as his time in office is going to be limited.

    No surprise here. The only thing Josh Mandel has ever done well is raise money. The cobbler (because he goes through so many pairs of shoes going door-to-door) is good at shaking everyone down for BIG bucks.

    A good question is what makes Mandel qualified to even be Treasurer?

    Time at the State House dealing with money and budgets, time on City Council helping fight to spend money wisely and general good fiscal sense. Next question?

    For the sake of a coherent discussion, what committees was Josh Mandel on while on City Council or in the State House. This may help point the discussion in a relevant direction.

    Never mind Mandel hasn't authored any serious legislation, ever. Treasurer is not legislative, so we can give the Cobbler a pass there.

    I read that you're on Josh Mandel's payroll. Can this be true?

    Nope. I did some work on his website for him briefly in 2007 when he was in Iraq for his State Rep website, LONG before he ever decided to run for state wide office. Josh Mandel is a real movement conservative and I'm just a fan.

    Nice econ blog!

    Thanks Justin. That commenter is just some Cleveland local with some bitter grudge against Josh. He won't post his name, but he is a sad and pathetic individual.

    Mandel would be a fantastic Treasurer… vastly different from the pay to play style of Deters, Cordray, and Boyce.

    Ranking Minority Member on the House Financial Institutions Committee, for one.

    What experience did Kevin Boyce have before he leaped from City Council to State Treasurer? Zero.

    Easy enough explanation. Thanks for clearing up. Kind of discredits the source where I read that. That's not a total surprise, though…

    ah hah! So you were on Mandel’s payroll at one time. That makes sense. No wonder. Their is lingering bias toward Mandel. I know you can’t possibly call yourself objective and support him so much.
