Club for Growth PAC-endorsed candidate Josh Mandel announced he would be withdrawing his candidacy for U.S. Senate. His announcement came in conjunction with news that Josh’s wife, Ilana, has a health issue that will require his time and attention. As Josh explained in his statement, ‘Understanding and dealing with this health issue is more important to me than any political campaign.’
It’s with a heavy heart I share Josh’s news with you. The Club for Growth PAC supports Josh in his decision to do what’s best for his wife and his family.
Club for Growth is grateful for all Josh has done to promote fiscal responsibility and transparency in his service to Ohio, and we have no doubt he would have made a great senator. Josh is a conservative and a patriot. Our prayers are with him and his family during this difficult time.
