Letter: Mandel is Jordan’s clone

I just read where Josh Mandel has announced he is running for the U.S. Senate job being vacated by Rob Portman.

I wondered if this was a good thing and received my answer quickly when the story in The Lima News quoted Mandel as saying, “When I go to Washington, I’m going to go there to pulverize the uni-party. The uni-party is what I call this group of Democrats and Republicans who sound exactly the same and are more interested in getting invited to the cocktail party circuit than they are in standing up for the Constitution.”

Tell me, do we really need Jim Jordan 2.0? Does Ohio really want another pit bull in Washington who cannot wait to knock the block off the Democrats? Wouldn’t we be better off with a Republican candidate that had an open mind and campaigned on solutions for cutting the deficit, improving this nation’s infrastructure, and keeping two steps ahead of Putin and China?

This isn’t a football game — the Republicans vs. the Democrats.

I was a big supporter of Jordan in the early years. He walked the talk about a strong military, reducing the deficit and supporting family values. Now he just wants to bash Democrats and defend the worst president in American history.

Mandel is Jordan’s clone. Ohio already looks foolish with Jordan’s antics. Do we really want to double up on that?
