For a young, first-time U.S. Senate candidate hundreds of miles from Florida, Josh Mandel has the very best of the Sunshine State backing him.

Mandel, who is running for the U.S. Senate seat in Ohio, was the first endorsement given by U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, who is very careful with his endorsements. And on Thursday, Mandel got a huge plug from former Gov. Jeb Bush, who represents the gold standard in GOP politics.

Bush sees Mandel as crucial to gaining Republican control of the U.S. Senate.

“Josh is the real deal. I mean he’s a very energetic, very conservative, very smart guy,” said Bush during an exclusive Newsmax interview.

In March, Rubio, who is now at the top of most lists of prospective vice presidential candidates, was no less effusive.

“Ohio is a critical state in our country and probably one of the most critical swing states,” he said. “Josh gives not just Ohio but America the opportunity to send someone to the Senate that I know will help us recapture all the things that made America great for the last century.”
