The Ohio primary was Gov. John Kasich’s lone presidential primary win, and new numbers show a lot more Democrats voted Republican than vice versa. But the state's chief elections official says that isn’t a prediction of what could happen this fall.

Now that U.S. Senator Ted Cruz and Ohio Governor John Kasich have suspended their presidential campaigns, Republicans are at a crossroads as they decide whether or not to coalesce around the apparent republican nominee Donald Trump.

After Kasich suspended his campaign Wednesday, Republican Beavercreek City Councilman Brian Jarvis said the governor ran a “straight forward campaign” that matched his personality. Jarvis also said he believes the GOP will now coalesce behind Donald Trump.

John Kasich plans to end his bid for the Republican presidential nomination, making Donald Trump the presumptive Republican nominee.

Three campaign officials who spoke to The Associated Press said the Ohio governor plans to announce his decision in a statement from his home state later Wednesday.
 
The officials spoke anonymously because they are not authorized to disclose Kasich's decision.
 
Kasich's decision to suspend his campaign comes after he failed to convert a win in his home state primary into momentum in the chaotic GOP campaign.

State officials are set to release proposed details of an effort to require more than 1 million low-income Ohioans to pay a new monthly cost for Medicaid.

House Republicans inserted the idea for the so-called Healthy Ohio Program into the state budget last year. It would require federal approval.

Republican Gov. John Kasich's administration must first seek a waiver of federal Medicaid rules so that the state can require certain Medicaid recipients to pay into a health-savings account regardless of their income.

Republican Governor John Kasich's administration is moving forward with plans to require more than 1 million low-income Ohioans to pay a new monthly cost for Medicaid or potentially lose coverage.

House Republicans added the idea to the state budget enacted last summer.

The provision requires Kasich's administration to seek a waiver of federal Medicaid rules so that Ohio can require certain Medicaid recipients to pay into a health-savings account regardless of their income. The plan requires federal approval.

Governor John Kasich's administration is proposing an overhaul of how the state and its cities deal with lead in drinking water.

The plan obtained by The Associated Press includes significantly reducing how long it takes to notify residents when lead is detected in tap water.

Ohio's proposal being announced Thursday would give city water systems just two days to alert residents about high lead readings.

Current federal rules call for homeowners where the tests are done to be told within 30 days and notices for all other residents within 60 days.

Kasich Delegates Prepare For Contested Convention

While John Kasich may have gotten a boost from the Ohio Primary win, the delegate math still shows he can't get the amount needed to clinch the nomination. This could mean a heated battle during the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.

Kasich and his supporters plan to forge ahead, even though he trails Donald Trump and Ted Cruz in total delegates. But if no one has the 1,237 delegates needed to secure the nomination then the obligation lifts and delegates can choose any candidate.

Hillary Clinton has won the Democratic presidential primary in Ohio, earning her third win in Tuesday's quintet of contests.

Clinton already scored victories in Florida and North Carolina, earning 175 additional delegates before winning Ohio.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich has scored his first win of the presidential nomination contest, grabbing all 66 delegates in the Ohio primary, in what could ultimately stall Donald Trump's decisive dash to the nomination.

Governor John Kasich made a campaign stop in the Dayton area Friday—inside the Fuyao Glass Plant in Moraine. He spent the majority of the town hall meeting talking about job creation.

“When I’m president we’re going to have a shock and awe philosophy to get this country jump started again with more jobs and more unity in the United States of America,” Kasich said.

The crowd was subdued, watching patiently as Kasich spoke among huge crates filled with windshields.

WASHINGTON (AP) — John Kasich is criticizing Hillary Clinton for saying Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder should resign over the lead-contaminated water in Flint, Michigan.

Campaigning in Snyder's state, Kasich says Clinton's remarks in Sunday's Democratic debate that Snyder should resign or be recalled are "the definition of gall." He's suggesting Clinton is hypocritical without offering specifics.

"Of all the people in the world to call on someone to resign," Kasich says, adding, "we'll get to that in the fall."
