Josh Mandel is already in full 2018 form: Ohio Politics Roundup
Josh Mandel continues his crusade against sanctuary cities and reaches out to a Twitter critic. Six is a magic number for Rob Portman. And questions about the political futures of Richard Cordray and J.D. Vance persist. Read more in Ohio Politics Roundup. Josh Mandel continues his crusade against sanctuary cities and reaches out to a Twitter critic. Six is a magic number for Rob Portman. And questions about the political futures of Richard Cordray and J.D. Vance persist. Read more in Ohio Politics Roundup. Just Joshin': Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel has been planning a rematch with Sen. Sherrod Brown for a while. But with his hat now officially in the ring, Mandel is doing more to raise his profile and push a political message that helped propel Donald Trump to the White House. Nowhere is this more evident than in Mandel's recent crusade against so-called sanctuary cities. Last week he joined with fellow Republicans in Cincinnati to denounce Democratic city officials there who refuse to partner with federal authorities to enforce immigration laws. On Monday, cleveland.com's Jackie Borchardt writes, Mandel threw "his support behind a proposed bill to ban 'sanctuary cities' and hold local elected officials who buck the ban criminally liable for crimes committed by undocumented immigrants." Mandel was unable to offer an example in Ohio where an undocumented immigrant was released and then committed a serious crime. He sees the legislation as a proactive move. State Rep. Candice Keller will sponsor the bill. The Middletown Republican "blamed immigrants and their 'culture' for committing crimes, including assaults and rape, and bringing in 'sexually transmitted diseases,'" the Columbus Dispatch's Alan Johnson reports. "Keller," writes the Cincinnati Enquirer's Jessie Balmert, "rode a wave of Trump support to win a spot in the Ohio Statehouse over the Butler County GOP's endorsed pick." Mandel is fundraising off the issue: "This push to allow sanctuary cities is happening all over the country," he wrote in Monday campaign email. "I'm committed to stopping it. I'm committed to being a strong voice in the Senate against this kind of lawlessness. I don't know about you, but I think we need more conservative fighters in Washington. We need to drain the swamp, starting with one of the worst offenders: Sherrod Brown. ... I am asking you to dig deep." Coincidence or confrontation? On Jan. 21, Aimee Gilman tapped out the first in a series of tweets blasting Mandel -- a missive that accused him, without corroboration, of not supporting the disabled. Three days later, Mandel telephoned the civil rights attorney directly, asking for help in promoting his STABLE investment accounts for people with disabilities. Mandel's spokesman characterized the call as a coincidence that shows the treasurer is committed to involving key community leaders in the program. When told Gilman believed her criticism provoked the call, the spokesman dismissed her as someone with "black helicopter conspiracy theories flying around." I have more on the Gilman-Mandel exchange here. Away game: Brown took in some basketball -- and some dollars from donors -- Monday night at the Verizon Center in Washington, where the defending world champion Cleveland Cavaliers played the Wizards. It wasn't the first time Brown held a Cavs-related fundraiser in D.C. Brown to vote against Scott Pruitt: He announced Monday that he won't support Trump's pick to lead the Environmental Protection Agency. "Of six cabinet votes held so far ... Brown has supported four and opposed two," the Toledo Blade's Tom Troy notes. Why Rob Portman isn't worried about Betsy DeVos: The Ohio Republican's compassionate conservatism might have some Democrats eyeing him as a swing vote today when the Senate decides whether to confirm Trump's nominee for secretary of Education. But cleveland.com's Stephen Koff examines Portman's political reasons for supporting DeVos. "He doesn't have to run for another six years," Koff notes. "This matters because some DeVos opponents say they will work to defeat him if votes for confirmation. Six years is a long time, and so many things can happen between now and then that the threats may lose their relevance."  Yeah, this isn't gonna work: After Portman announced he would vote for DeVos, "Liz Plotnick-Snay started looking for a way to change the Ohio Republican's mind. The Columbus-based business consultant settled on a Go Fund Me page asking like-minded Ohioans to try to match the approximately $50,000 in campaign contributions that DeVos and her family members have donated to Portman's two Senate campaigns," USA Today's Deirdre Shesgreen writes. "'If Betsy DeVos can buy Senator Portman's vote, we should be allowed to do the same,' she writes on the page, which has raised about $4,600 so far. ... She said she will give the money to the Ohio Federation of Teachers in Portman's name if he changes his mind." A Portman spokesman said the effort will not sway the senator. Talk it out: Meanwhile, U.S. Senate Democrats, hoping in part to find just one vote that would kill DeVos's confirmation, were talking through the afternoon and night Monday in a mock filibuster, reports Koff. "The tactic is partly a protest to make Republicans wait out the full time required under Senate rules before any nominee can be confirmed," Koff writes. "Look for additional sessions like this later this week, starting with one on attorney general-nominee Jeff Sessions, said U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown's office."  Richrolling? "Allies of President Donald Trump are building a legal case for ousting Richard Cordray, the director of the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau who one court called 'the single most powerful official' in government after the president," Politico's Lorraine Woellert and Josh Dawsey report. "Firing him would ignite a political fuse that could cause more damage than it's worth to his foes. Even some Trump advisers are ambivalent about the idea, saying it might be easier to live with Cordray until his term expires in July 2018." Remember: A Cordray ouster, if upheld by the courts, would give the former Ohio attorney general a compelling story to tell if he decides to return home and run for governor. As it stands, the Democratic field remains unsettled until Trump's and Cordray's intentions are clearer. Kasich contradictions: Ohio Gov. John Kasich misrepresented his record last week when discussing his veto of a six-week abortion ban, Ohio Public Radio's Karen Kasler reports. "'First of all, it's not constitutional and secondly, I'm not signing anything that doesn't have an exception for rape, incest or the life of the mother,'" Kasich said. "But Kasich did sign a 20-week abortion ban with an exception for the life of the woman, but not for rape or incest." Brutal headline: "Kasich has his own 'alternative fact' issues," The Columbus Dispatch, referring to that inaccuracy and another Kasich fact fumble, posted online. Larson lands: Jeff Larson, who served as CEO of last summer's Republican National Convention in Cleveland, is returning to the Republican National Committee as a senior adviser, the RNC announced Monday. Larson was the party's chief of staff during the 2012 cycle. Preparing for Pelanda: At a Republican luncheon Monday in Mansfield, State Rep. Dorothy Pelanda of Marysville said she soon will launch her campaign for secretary of state, WMFD.com reports. She could face a GOP primary against State Sen. Frank LaRose of Copley. Vance advancing? Everyone wants to know if "Hillbilly Elegy" author J.D. Vance's imminent return to Ohio will lead to a career in Republican politics. (I asked about it in my one-on-one with him late last year.) The answer is usually a variation of "never say never." Vance opens up a little more to the Washington Post's Karen Heller. "I'm certainly interested in public service over the long term," he says. "But it sort of bothers me, the presumption at the age of 32, that if someone is saying interesting things, and has interesting insights, why isn't he running for office? ... I think running a small nonprofit to work on the opioid crisis and bring interesting new businesses to the so-called Rust Belt -- all of these things are valuable, if not more valuable, than running for office. ... So I will say I'm not running for office right now, which is true. But it's sort of dishonest and, sort of, like, cagey."

For President-elect Donald Trump, 'draining the swamp' won't be so easy: 60-Second Know-It-All (video)
Once you get past the marquee names at the top, this administration may end up looking a lot like Republican administrations of the past. Watch video Associated Press  CLEVELAND, Ohio - President-elect Donald Trump's assumption of the reins of power has hit a few snags, stemming partly from his transition team's late start and partly from the ongoing existential debate over this administration's central existential debate: how will the traditional conservatives and the alt-right firebrands share power? From former Breitbart News chief Steve Bannon's appointment as Trump's chief strategist on down to his likely selection of climate-change skeptic Myron Ebell as the new head of the Environmental Protection Agency, there will be many marquee names from the fringe right to add color and set the tone for this administration. But Trump's chief of staff will be Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee and as mainstream a conservative as you'll find. That also sets a tone. And with potentially more than four thousand government posts to fill, the likelihood is that once you get past the marquee names at the top, this administration will end up looking less like the free-swinging, loose-cannon Trump presidential campaign and more like Republican administrations of the past.

Reince Priebus has an Ohio problem: Ohio Politics Roundup
As RNC Chair Reince Priebus continues to tick off top Ohio Republicans, Donald Trump is winning over the GOP rank and file in the state. Today's Ohio Politics Roundup is brought to you by Jeremy Pelzer. As RNC Chair Reince Priebus continues to tick off top Ohio Republicans, Donald Trump is winning over the GOP rank and file in the state. Sheldon Adelson belatedly helped Cleveland's RNC host committee close a $6 million fundraising gap. And John Boehner lands another private-sector job. Today's Ohio Politics Roundup is brought to you by Jeremy Pelzer.     Reince Priebus' Ohio troubles: Reince Priebus "has an Ohio problem," writes cleveland.com's Henry J. Gomez, after the Republican National Committee chair slighted state party chair Matt Borges and angered Gov. John Kasich - most recently by warning that Kasich's refusal to endorse Donald Trump could trigger party penalties if Kasich runs for president again. "The Priebus problem, at the moment, is not a Trump problem," Gomez notes. But he notes it's not good to have national and Ohio Republicans fighting in a presidential election year. And more specifically, Priebus can't afford to upset Borges, who has helped Trump get his bearings in Ohio and has been mentioned as a possible replacement for Priebus. Will the chair yield for a question? Gomez wasn't able to get a hold of Priebus, but he listed a number of hard-hitting questions he hoped to ask the RNC chair, including why it's OK to "meddle in Kasich's affairs" even though Priebus has "largely tolerated Trump's racially charged rhetoric and other inflammatory remarks." "As RNC chairman, why haven't you stepped in more forcefully to condemn the language Trump is using?" Gomez asked. "Do you not see it as your responsibility to stand up for decency?" More shade thrown Kasich's way: Priebus isn't the only Republican leader who has a problem with Kasich's refusal to back Trump. U.S. House Committee on Homeland Security Chair Mike McCaul of Texas told LifeZette Editor-in-Chief Laura Ingraham that a "high price should be paid" by Kasich and fellow presidential hopeful Ted Cruz for not supporting the GOP nominee. "The Supreme Court is at stake, and you got people like John Kasich who's trying to skew Ohio, and others really just because they want to -- I think they just really want to get attention," McCaul said. "And it's not good for the country at the end of the day, you know?" Meanwhile, Trump's winning over Ohio GOP voters: While the Kasich-Trump feud continues, "rank-and-file Ohio Republicans have forged their own tenuous truce with their nominee," writes Politico's Katie Glueck and Kyle Cheney. "Strategists and activists in the state say many of those center-right voters are now coming on board for Trump in increasing numbers -- even if reluctantly -- despite Kasich's ongoing feud with the nominee." Borges plays peacemaker: Borges told Politico he didn't think the dispute with Kasich would blunt Trump's recent progress in the state. But even so, he said he's repeatedly - and successfully - urged Trump in person to avoid an open war with Kasich. Borges: "It makes no sense to pick a fight with the most popular elected official."  Adelson helps close RNC money gap: Cleveland's "nonpartisan host committee for the 2016 Republican National Convention exceeded its $64 million fundraising goal, despite being about $6 million short the week of the event," cleveland.com's Andrew J. Tobias reports. The $65.7 million in cash and in-kind contributions raised by the host committee includes a $1.5 million donation on Aug. 24 from top GOP donor Sheldon Adelson, whom Host Committee leader David Gilbert had asked to close the $6 million shortfall. Gilbert landed in hot water when it was discovered his solicitation letter to Adelson contained inaccurate information. Brown blasts Wells Fargo CEO: U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown on Tuesday joined other members of the Senate Banking Committee in laying into Wells Fargo chairman and CEO John Stumpf after his bank used thousands of customers' personal information to open unauthorized bank and credit card accounts, cleveland.com's Stephen Koff writes. Brown told Stumpf during the committee hearing that Wells Fargo also "has been downright hostile to aggrieved customers" by using a legal escape hatch to avoid lawsuits. Boehner lands K Street gig: Former U.S. House Speaker John Boehner has joined Cleveland-based law firm and lobbying powerhouse Squire Patton Boggs as a strategic adviser on global business development, cleveland.com's Sabrina Eaton reports. The announcement comes less than a week after Boehner joined the board of tobacco giant Reynolds American.  Portman en espanol: U.S. Sen. Rob Portman's latest TV ad is a rarity in Ohio politics - it's completely in Spanish. In the ad, titled "Mi prioridad" ("My priority"), Portman (who's fluent in Spanish) says his priority is "to create better jobs." The Republican's campaign is spending $250,000 to air the ad on Spanish-language stations in the state. Hispanics aren't a large voting bloc in Ohio: they made up only 2.3 percent of the state's eligible voters in 2014. But as the Washington Post's Ed O'Keefe notes, the ad reinforces Portman's electability, shows Portman is increasingly confident of victory, and is a "bright spot" as Republicans struggle to win over Latino voters. Dredging up another lawsuit: "The Ohio Attorney General's Office on Monday filed a new lawsuit asking a federal judge to order the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to dredge the Cleveland Harbor and Cuyahoga River shipping channel this year, after the judge refused their request on technical grounds," cleveland.com's Eric Heisig reports. "The latest lawsuit's demands are similar to those" brought in the AG's 2015 lawsuit, which a federal judge ruled couldn't be used to force the Army Corps to dredge this year. Lawmaker urges parents to destroy toy guns: Ohio Sen. Cecil Thomas is asking parents to get rid of real-looking toy guns after Columbus police last week fatally shot Tyre King, a 13-year-old carrying a BB gun, cleveland.com's Jackie Borchardt reports. "Children do not understand the danger these imitation weapons pose," said Thomas, a Cincinnati Democrat and an ex-cop. From the House to the Chamber: State Rep. Jeff McClain, an Upper Sandusky Republican, will resign from the legislature on Oct. 2 to become director of tax and economic policy for the Ohio Chamber of Commerce, Speaker Cliff Rosenberger announced in a news release. McClain, a former chair of the House Ways and Means Committee, is term-limited this year.
