Ohio GOP Senate candidate Kevin Coughlin attacks his Republican primary opponent Josh Mandel, the state treasurer:
Coughlin owns a political consulting and fundraising company. Referring to Mandel and Brown, Coughlin said he is the "only one who has earned a private paycheck." Mandel is a two-tour Marine Corps veteran of the Iraq war.
Bragging that you were taking a nice "private" paycheck at a political consulting and fundraising firm while your opponent was fighting our enemies in Iraq is probably not going to be a successful campaign strategy.
