A super-PAC - one of those committees that can raise and spending unlimited funds to influence voters - has announced it is backing Republican Josh Mandel for Ohio's U.S. Senate seat.
The group Reclaiming Freedom announced Thursday that Ohio is one of five states where it hopes to wrest seats away from Democrats.
Organized by Republican operatives, it has a goal of spending $10 million in this election.
Mandel is one of five Republican Senate challengers who are getting help from Reclaiming Freedom. The others are Tommy Thompson (Wisconsin), Linda Lingle (Hawaii), George Allen (Virginia) and Denny Rehberg (Montana). Also getting help is incumbent Sen. Dean Heller (R., Nevada).
The PAC said it released its virst video ad, titled "Dangerous Dysfunction,” which slams the Senate’s Democratic leadership as "rudderless, incompetent, and radical."
