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.
