Instead of tuning into Tuesday night’s All Star game, about 300 people gathered at the Sharonville Convention Center for a tea party rally in support of Josh Mandel, Ohio Treasurer and Republican candidate for U.S. Senate.

The mostly middle-aged white crowd included a handful of local politicians and political activists. Utah Sen. Mike Lee also spoke in support for the conservative ideals and to promote Mandel.

... Mandel also said he is fighting Sen. Brown on the issue of expanding same-sex marriages and will “protect the sanctity of marriage.”

“This is a fight that I will never, ever back down,” he said.

Mandel concluded by echoing calls from Lee for support and volunteer efforts from the crowd.

“We will talk until we are blue in the face and argue until we are hoarse,” Lee said. “But we will make this change happen.” --'s Politics Extra
