Mandel backs Rubio

Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel, who endorsed U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio for president over Ohio Gov. John Kasich, defended his support for Rubio and insisted that he isn't "trashing" anybody.

"I'm not anti-the governor, I'm just pro-Marco," he said.

Mandel made news earlier this year when he predicted that Kasich would drop out of the presidential race before the Republican National Convention is held in Cleveland in July.
