"We must stop student loan interest rates from rising, but I'm not going to say how. Also, I don't think kids should talk in the hallway."We have now witnessed a rare unexplored issue introduced in the Mandel's Senate race against Sen. Sherrod Brown. School corridors befitting the silence of a mountaintop monastery? Good luck on that, Josh. Talk about non-sequitors! What does student chatter have to do with student loans? ( The Vindicator also noted that the whiz kid had earlier come out strongly in favor of requiring students to wear uniforms, without saying who would pay for them.)
Anyway, it's good to know that Mandel, the Ohio Treasurer, is out and about these days for reasons other than to raise money. People who watch more TV than I do say they have yet to see him on a ad attacking Brown. So far Brown has been carpet bombed by more than $5 million in ads paid for by such progressives as the U.S.Chamber of Commerce and the American Petroleum Institiute while Mandel focusses on reminding the public that he is an Iraqi veteran.
At least the bit about chattering students is a welcome, if odd, change in the subject.
