YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Senator Sherrod Brown isn’t too worried about his challenger Josh Mandel, although he expects that he’ll be outspent in the campaign.

Mandel, the Republican state treasurer, announced Wednesday that he will be running for the seat held by Brown in 2018. He said he wants to fix Washington, “drain the swamp,” and fight for the people of Ohio.

Brown has held his seat for 10 years, even defeating Mandel once before. Brown said just like in 2012, Mandel will have plenty of financial support behind him.

“The drug companies don’t like how I fight for lower drug prices. Wall Street doesn’t like how I take on the big banks to protect the public, so that’ll keep coming. I expect that we win even though we’re outspent. It’ll happen again,” he said.
