Josh Mandel, a Republican candidate for Senate who faces three other candidates for the Republican primary, won an informal straw poll on Saturday. Going into the Ohio rally candidate, Jane Timken was aggressively campaigning for the endorsement of President Donald J. Trump, even going as far as renting a plane to drag her efforts through the skies. But her attempts to sway Trump to endorse her over the others fell flat.
OH Senate – Trump name drops all candidates but doesn't endorse. Doing a straw poll. Josh Mandel wins the straw poll and Trump heavily hints at endorsing Mandel…

Trump is an awkward position between Mandel and Timken because both have supported Trump in the past, although Madel was leading in the political polls, according to Rich Side Broadcast,as of Saturday before the rally.
Comments on social media all indicated that Mandel was also the crowd favorite, and many believed that would help Trump make his announcement sooner.
Oh my god Trump just did a LIVE Ohio Senate poll at his rally, I can't!
Josh Mandel won by the way.

“Trump and I are both fighters, and this is not the time for civility this is the time for fighting, and the only way to combat the left is to take on the squishes. I am going to Washington not to just drain the swamp but to blow it up,” Mandel told Amanda, Head of Real America’s Voice, before Trump spoke.
“I am a Marine Corps Vet and I promise they won’t push me away. I think the election was stolen from President Trump, and to all of these liberals who don’t want an audit, I am asking what they are afraid of. I announced from my campaign that I think that instead of a Jan 6th Commission we need a Nov. 3rd Commision. ”

“I’M NOT GOING TO WASHINGTON DC TO MAKE FRIENDS, I’M GOING TO FIGHT FOR THE AMERICA FIRST AGENDA.”
According to Mandel’s campaign website:
Mandal says he is Pro-God, Pro-Gun, and Pro-Trump.
Yahoo News reported on Mandel’s call for commissions this week and said:
“GOP Senate candidate Josh Mandel is calling on Congress to drop plans for a Jan. 6 commission and instead investigate claims of election fraud in the 2020 election.
According to Mandel, lawmakers should create a new commission “to study the widespread election abuses and cheating during the 2020 election. And to ensure that the future elections in America are fair and secure. The 2020 election was a total mess riddled with fraud, cheating, and mismanagement. I believe the 2020 election was stolen from President Trump,” he said in a phone interview with the Washington Examiner on Thursday.
As envisioned by Mandel, such a commission would examine three aspects of the election that were vastly changed across the country to contend with health concerns associated with the coronavirus pandemic. A press release from his campaign calls for an investigation into: “voting laws [that] were changed on the fly or ignored under the guise of ‘public health,’” voters receiving unsolicited ballots in the mail, and the use of drop boxes.
Mandel, who identifies himself on social media as the first statewide official in Ohio to support former President Donald Trump, likely won’t make much headway with his 2020 election commission alternative in a Congress controlled by Democrats. Still, he isn’t waiting to find out. The 43-year-old Marine Corps veteran and former Ohio treasurer are making recommendations on how to improve election security.

His campaign press release recommends officials require voter identification, enforce signature verification on absentee ballots, prohibit unsecured drop boxes, and prevent ballot harvesting by only mailing ballots to people who requested them.
