MORAINE, Ohio (WDTN) – The future of Governor John Kasich’s presidential campaign will be decided by Ohio voters and he hopes Friday’s rally in Moraine will help.
Close to a thousand people are expected to attend the Town Hall Meeting at Fuyao Glass America.
According to State Representative Niraj Antani, Kasich chose to make the stop for several reasons.
“I think it’s telling of what his campaign is about. For a long time when GM left the plant was empty. But Gov. Kasich and his administration and Jobs Ohio, which he helped set up, brought Fuyao and over a thousand jobs here. To Moraine and the state of Ohio and Dayton area. So I think it’s significant that he’s coming here on his campaign stop for President,” said Antani.
Gov. Kasich has said before that if he doesn’t win Ohio, he’ll suspend his campaign for President.
If he does take the Buckeye state, Representative Antani will head to Cleveland this summer as a delegate to vote for Kasich as the Republican nominee.
“The Dayton area is very important. Montgomery county is the fourth largest county in Ohio and therefore will deliver a significant amount of votes for him and will be a critical part of the campaign and trying to win Ohio,” Rep. Antani said.
Mary Beth Gouge co-owns the gym, Personally Fit in Moraine. It’s located right across the street from Fuyao. The business owner credits the Governor for playing a part in turning the city around after it was hit hard by the recession.
“I think seeing what’s happening right now in Moraine and the growth that’s taken place not only with Fuyao but a couple of other businesses that have come into the area. So I think him coming here is going to be a great thing for our city,” said Gouge
