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.

Gov. John Kasich is hitting the campaign trail hard after a second place finish in New Hampshire. Yesterday, Ohio lawmakers talked about how the campaign might be impacting day-to-day operations at the Statehouse. 

Recently, there’s been a sense that Kasich's campaign might be causing lawmakers to move a little slower than usual. Senate President Keith Faber (R-Celina) and House Speaker Cliff Rosenberger (R-Clarksville) dispute this notion and say that Kasich is always ready to take a phone call.

Ohio Governor, John Kasich came in 2nd in the New Hampshire Republican primary election on Tuesday. It was good news for his campaign but now the candidate, who’s established himself as a moderate in the GOP  field of presidential hopefuls, moves on to tougher territory – South Carolina and beyond.

As expected, Governor John Kasich didn’t do well among the Republican presidential candidates in the Iowa caucuses. He finished tied for seventh place with Carly Fiorina, both with just under 2% of the vote. 

Kasich had focused his campaign on New Hampshire, figuring he could perform better with face-to-face campaigning in a smaller state with fewer extremely conservative voters.But University of Cincinnati political science professor David Niven says he has his work cut out for him.
