Candidates were asked to cite one point on which they disagreed with Trump at a GOP Senate forum in Ohio.
Josh Mandel said in a video shared by Ron Filipkowski; “There is no daylight between me and President Trump ..Because Democrats cheat to win elections .. now is the time for fighters.”
There have several reactions following the harsh comment by Josh. “A boy went to another town with a weapon of mass death. This is irresponsible of Josh Mandel, a Senate candidate. But what else is new.” One said.
Another said, “@JoshMandelOhio couldn’t fight his way out of a wet paper bag. It’s all an act. If someone has to tell you how tough they are – they’re trying to convince themselves.”
