Governor John Kasich

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."

Super Tuesday aside, Ohio governor John Kasich says he will stay in the presidential race at least until Ohio’s March 15 primary. But he’s lagging behind Donald Trump in the polls even in Ohio. Kasich has run largely on his record in Ohio, and particularly his leadership around growing the economy.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is bringing his campaign to Ohio ahead of the state's important March 15 primary.

Trump is scheduled to appear Tuesday at a hangar at Port Columbus International Airport. It marks his second campaign stop in Columbus, where GOP rival John Kasich (KAY'-sik) is governor.

Kasich has repeatedly said he's confident he will win his home state, despite some polls showing Trump prevailing. Kasich is scheduled to spend next week in Massachusetts, Vermont and Michigan.

Ohio Governor John Kasich is still in the race for president—even after he came in 5th in the Republican caucuses in Nevada Tuesday. In media interviews, the candidate says he remains positive about his chances to pick up more support leading up to Super Tuesday primaries next week.

 

A recent Quinnipiac poll placed Kasich behind Donald Trump in the primary race even in Kasich’s home state of Ohio—that primary is March 15.

Governor John Kasich has signed legislation to strip government money from Planned Parenthood in Ohio.

The move from the Republican presidential candidate was expected, but he made it official Sunday. It comes a day after Kasich's weak performance in South Carolina's GOP presidential primary and a day before he heads to Virginia to campaign.

Gov. John Kasich didn’t do well in the South Carolina primary – finishing fifth. But his backers are staying positive about his chances going forward. 

Ohio Republican Party chair Matt Borges says he’s not convinced that voters are rejecting Kasich as an establishment candidate. And Borges also dismisses the idea that Kasich is angling for a vice presidential slot with Marco Rubio, or anyone else.

It was another long weekend for Gov. John Kasich – the final debate before the South Carolina primary on Saturday night, and then two talk shows Sunday morning. 

The debate had several raucous and angry moments, but Kasich didn’t get dragged into them. He joked about the experience on “This Week” on ABC. 

“It was like a demolition derby, but the good news is my car's still going around the circuit,” said Kasich. 

Kasich also said he felt the debates were “ridiculous”, and no way to pick a president.
