Republican Candidate for Ohio Governor Visits Marietta

The campaign trail led Ohio's republican candidate for governor into Marietta Thursday.

Along with other stops, John Kasich spent some time at the Fine Art and Framing Gallery, meeting and greeting with local folks and answering any questions they had.

The nine term congressman and former fox news host says the main reason he's running for governor is to bring more jobs to Ohio.

"Think of the state of Ohio like a restaurant. If you don't have any customers in your restaurant, you can't raise prices; you need to lower prices and lower your overhead. Change the menu and you get more customers. Think of Ohio that way," Kasich said.

Ohio's gubernatorial election is set for 2010.

    Agree with George! That was pathetic coverage of a major event in Marietta yesterday. This man is a former Ohio congressman, national political news commentator, and quite likely Ohio's next governor. So all you give it is 25 seconds of lousy reporting and one airing? And having watched the interview take place, I know you had more than enough usable footage for a decent story. The only reason I ever turn NBC on is to watch your news and weather, but even that's becoming a total waste of time. This was truly pathetic!

    Great reporting, to show the back of a senior woman signing the guest registrar and a supporter with a campaign sticker on his chest. Wow, very informative. After your reporter dominated the first part of our next governor time with his constitutes, than leaving quickly, one would think Wtap would show at least one answer to her questions. Your web is a little better, but still weak at best.
