We've got the numbers, precinct by precinct, on who Westlake chose for the presidency, Senate, Congress and State Senate and House.

In the hotly contested Senate race, Josh Mandel narrowly beat victorious incumbent Sherrod Brown by just under 200 votes. See the charts below for precinct-by-precinct results.

Republican voters at a rally in Solon say GOP U.S. Senate candidate Josh Mandel is the polar opposite of his opponent, Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown and President Barack Obama.
Joy and Lowell Wolfe say they didn't become politically active until Barack Obama was elected to the White House. Since then, the couple from Geauga County has volunteered for Republican causes, including working to repeal the new health care law. They want to kick Obama out of office, and send Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown packing too. They see Brown as walking in lock-step with the president. "When people of Ohio had differences with the president, Sherrod Brown cast his vote with the president," said Lowell Wolfe. Enter Josh Mandel. Mandel is challenging Brown for his Senate seat. Currently Ohio's treasurer, Mandel has energized voters like the Wolfes who make up the Republican base. The Wolfes and roughly 200 other votes came to the …

It looks like Josh Mandel is a pretty funny guy - or, at least he was as a student at Beachwood High School. The Huffington Post published a photo today from the 1996 yearbook. The photo depicts local alum and state treasurer Josh Mandel, dressed in a padded bra and spandex shorts, spotting another boy in drag in the weight lifting room. Click here to see the full article.

Crowd of 500 greets speakers, singers.
The Tea Party Express may have planned a party, but the Sept. 3 stop in Avon proved to attract a less-than-stellar turnout for what was Ohio's only stop. Victoria Jackson didn’t show. The Republican presidential candidates didn’t show. The television cameras didn’t show, nor did the projected crowd of 5,000 arrive at All Pro Freight Stadium. That didn’t stop speakers on the bus tour from enthusiastically touting their message of lowered national debt, reduced government spending and opposition to taxes. Approximately 500 people, including volunteers, vendors and Tea Party Express people spent a few hours on Saturday at the rally, which began winding down by 6:30 p.m. Speakers and singers promoted the group’s values and conservative values …
