Mandel Not Ready to Weigh in on American Jobs Act

May 9, 2012

Time and again, Democrats have knocked Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel for skirting important issues and avoiding taking positions on tough issues. But it's hard to imagine the Republican Senate nominee has no opinion on one of President Obama's highest-profile initiatives, his $447 billion jobs plan that failed in Congress last fall. Yet, in an interview with the Columbus Dispatch, Mandel reserved judgment.

The Dispatch:

Mandel, who said voters have a clear choice this fall between two very different candidates, said he and Brown agree "on the need to invest in infrastructure in this country" and to have workers trained to build roads and bridges.

But when asked whether he would have supported Obama's American Jobs Act, the president's unsuccessful $447 billion stimulus package that would've included money for infrastructure upgrades and that Obama spent weeks last fall traveling the country to promote, Mandel said: "I'd have to read about it."
