Many public officials got onboard with President Donald Trump after his surprising victory Nov. 8, but few did so as energetically as Josh Mandel.
The second-term Republican state treasurer has been a prolific Twitter user for a long time, but after the election, he began lashing out fast and furious at "radical Islamic terrorism" and "sanctuary cities." Both topics are frequently mentioned by Trump in public statements and social media.
Mandel's personal Twitter account, which is not a taxpayer-funded official state account, is a vehicle for Mandel's personal and political opinions. He announced his second bid for the U.S. Senate online on Dec. 7. He lost round one to incumbent Sherrod Brown in 2012.
