COLUMBUS – Ohio Treasurer and U.S. Senate Candidate Josh Mandel issued the following statement today affirming his support for President-Elect Donald Trump’s Attorney General nominee Senator Jeff Sessions. 

"For the past eight years, the Obama-Sherrod Brown administration has run amok and politicized the enforcement of law.

"The Obama-Brown administration has eroded our nation’s immigration laws and rewarded sanctuary cities that shield illegal aliens. Sen. Sessions understands that there's no room in America or Ohio for sanctuary cities, and he will help restore honor and respect for the rule of law to a Washington that has put politics ahead of national security.

"I have no doubt that Sen. Sessions will be an outstanding Attorney General, and I support his nomination and look forward to working closely with him on important initiatives in the months and years ahead."
