The GOP candidate for Senate in Ohio, Josh Mandel, drew murmurs of approval from southern Ohio Republicans during his discussion of budget and energy issues _ and plenty of laughs with his jokes about his boyish appearance. The 35-year-old Mandel _ he looks 19 _ is a onetime city councilman, state legislator and Marine veteran of Iraq. His opponent is a 59-year-old populist Democrat, first-term Brown.
