Senator Sherrod Brown has enjoyed the lead in the polls since Treasurer Mandel won the primary election. There have been no significant controversies or events within the election and Treasurer Mandel seems to be having difficulty gaining traction. While Ohio is always a tossup state, this election is listed as leaning Democrat.
Despite a large field of competitors, State Treasurer Josh Mandel was able to win the primary with more than 60% of the vote. Mandel did not participate in any of the primary events with the other candidates and was criticized for seeking the Senate seat weeks after winning the State Treasurer seat and pledging to remain in that position if elected.
