Kevin Coughlin, above, says he's "earned a private paycheck" while state Treasurer Josh Mandel, below, who served two tours in Iraq, hasn't. Blood was drawn yesterday in the Ohio GOP race for the U.S. Senate, 11 months before the two remaining candidates will face off in the May primary election.

I am voting for Coughlin. Mandel is not qualified and if he is the candidate, he will lose big to Brown. I am ashamed that the Republican Party of Ohio could not find another person.

Mandel is a JOKE. All he wants is to bounce from one office to the next and not finish any term. The knucklehead envisions himself as PRESIDENT. Ever meet anyone you wish you could buy for what they are worth and sell them for what they THINK they are worth ... Here his is folks Josh Mandel ... Bought for 2 cents and sold for a Billion $$$$$

Mandel ran for thee office he is in on the promise he would actually do the job. Seems now he is off and running for the next job he wants and expects us to give him our approval. It would be nice if he could show us he can do a statewide job before he wants to go to the Senate. Josh seems to want to commit political suicide.

Is Coughlin claiming that he was too busy working for himself in looking to better his own private financial self intresst while Mandel was serving our country sticking his own neck on the line to defend our freedom and protect us from terrorists? If so then Coughlin had better make sure his feet are planted firmly on the ground the next time he opens his mouth.

The Republican Party presents the Cutthroat vs. the Pretty Boy. How pathetic, yet how appropriate.

"I cough on the idea of Kevin as a US senator"

"Josh isn't man enough to represent Ohio in the US Senate"

Who wants to play?
