Ohio GOP Senate debate nearly gets physical as candidates get into altercation

‘You Watch What Happens, P*ssy’: Josh Mandel Flat Out Threatens Debate Opponent



The GOP’s Friday night U.S. Senate candidate forum in Ohio featured a face-off between candidates Mike Gibbons and Josh Mandel that nearly brought them to blows.

The argument between the two erupted after Mandel claimed Gibbons had “made millions” from business dealings with Chinese companies.

“You may not understand this,” Gibbons told Mandel, who then stood up from his seat and confronted Gibbons at the event hosted by FreedomWorks.

“I do,” Mandel replied.

“You have never … you have never been in the private sector in your entire life,” Gibbons told Mandel.

“Two tours in Iraq. Don’t tell me I haven’t worked,” Mandel responded, raising his voice to Gibbons.

A moderator approached the two men and attempted to defuse the situation. As Mandel was taking his seat, Gibbons said, “You don’t know squat,” prompting Mandel to rise from his seat again. Gibbons then told Mandel to “back off.”

    When lies are confronted with truth, elected office is a job of all service, not self enrichment. Remove the $$, remove the corruption. Remove all P.A.C’s from politics. Especially NOT FOR PROFIT P.A.C.’S ( UNLIMITED, UNKNOWN SOURCE DONATIONS to players) Putin, or George Soros can buy them all, legally!!???

    Gibbons is a RINO, Leadership must change and these career Politicians have to go.

    There’s No way to have a fair government when these same guys pass legislation that keeps them in office for ever. It’s wrong.

    That being said it was quite exciting to watch them react and usually that reaction is when someone is on point.

    Men in the service are used to being in control.If they had to work for a living in the outside world, it’s a whole another ballgame.They are being provided for in the military.The Sen.also is government provided for so they are on equal ground.

    Im a big Leo fan but this is a misrepresentation of the facts. Mike Gibbons is a clown that walked up on Josh Mandell and disrespected his service to this country. Josh served two tours in Iraq and protected our country faithfully. Mike Gibbons disrespected Josh by saying he’s done nothing. Nothing? Really? He protected our country Gibbons fat ass. Gibbons is a Trump hater and not an America first candidate. Josh Mandell is a patriot that Out his life on the line to protect Americans. Gibbons should show him the respect he deserves. Gibbons has done nothing but enrich himself!

    2 tours in in Iraq qualifies you for what
    Does not mean you have what it takes to understand al the complexities in running a country
    I certainly respect his service
    And totally respect and love all those who served
    I love America
    Support our military as well as police
    I have a brother who did your in Iran
    An uncle who did tours in Vietnam
    An uncle who retired a seargent as a marine he fought in North Korea and ww2 and was there on DAy
    But not an intelligent argument otherwise

    The young man stood to address his opponent’s attack and comments. I saw no Will Smith slap. I respect the man for standing! The comments were petty and meaningless.

    I stand with Josh Mandel. He did a wonderful job here in Cincinnati Ohio. He is a man of principles, honor, conviction and honesty. Gibbons is a RINO. “A man who won’t stand in the face of adversity won’t stand for anything.” Josh was correct about the Chinese deals worth millions. Research it’s all there.
