Gov. John Kasich gave his fourth State of the State speech last night in Medina, and as perhaps fitting for an election year, it was unlike any other he’s delivered.
It was his shortest State of the State speech to-date at just over an hour in length. But the most surprising part of the evening wasn’t political; it was Kasich’s presentation of the three Cleveland women who were held captive for over a decade by Ariel Castro. It was the first time the trio has been seen together publically since their escape. Kasich honored them with the 2014 Ohio Courage Medals.
