COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A Democratic state lawmaker is announcing plans to challenge Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel in 2014.

Third-term state Rep. Connie Pillich, of suburban Cincinnati, said Monday she'll focus her campaign on fighting for working families, fellow small business owners and senior citizens.

Pillich has been a lawyer, businesswoman and captain in the U.S. Air Force.

Without using his name, she criticized Mandel for absenteeism from his state position during a failed run for the U.S. Senate last year and for not wanting the job.

Ohio Republican Chairman-elect Matthew Borges said Mandel, a U.S. Marine veteran, has been a responsible watchdog of state tax dollars.

Borges cited Mandel's record of cutting his own budget, modernizing the office and maintaining the high credit rating of Ohio's investment fund.
