Kasich Presidential Ads Running In New Hampshire

Republican Ohio Governor John Kasich's first television ads of his presidential campaign is airing in the key primary state of New Hampshire, nearly two weeks before he officially enters the race.  The political action committee backing Kasich's candidacy is spending as much as two-million-dollars to air the ads. A one-minute ads begins with a clip reel of Kasich’s opponents, including real estate magnate Donald Trump. It then cuts to a voice-over asking, “Hey, what about us?” Kasich then speaks straight into the camera highlighting his blue-collar background and efforts to resuscitate Ohio’s economy. The two-term governor talks about his father, a mailman. “I learned something from my father,” he says. “Do your best to look out for other people.” Kasich then discusses balancing the state’s budget and creating jobs. “We turned Ohio around,” he says. Kasich is scheduled to formally announce his candidacy on July 21.
