Mandel's Primary Challenger On The Attack

As for his own fundraising strategy, he said he hoped the Ohio Republican Party would "let the dogs run" and have a fair competition. He tamped down expectations for the fundraising period that ends Thursday night, saying they were focused on the next deadline, in September. "As far as my own fundraising, we're just getting going. We haven't had a single event," Coughlin said. "Obviously we have a quarter coming up here that will end on September 30 that we have a very aggressive fundraising schedule on. Josh has been out to an early lead on that, I know he's had a fundraiser almost every day of this month here in June, somewhere in the country -- from Honolulu to Atlanta to DC and New York, and everywhere in between. And that's fine. We're running our campaign on our terms." He added that his conservative message was connecting well, and that he was confident he would obtain the resources needed to get that message out. Coughlin has lagged in polls taken before former Secretary of State Ken Blackwell said he wouldn't run in the GOP primary late last week. No polls have been taken since Blackwell's announcement.
