350 Public Officials and Party Activists from Across Ohio Unveiled at Kasich Debate Send-off Rally in Westerville

Today, Kasich for America announced its Ohio Leadership Team -- 350 public officials and Republican Party activists from across the state who have all officially endorsed Ohio Governor John Kasich for President, and who will work to deliver the state for the governor. The Leadership Team was unveiled at a rally for Gov. Kasich in Westerville, Ohio, on the day before the third Republican primary debate in Boulder, Colorado.
The Ohio Leadership Team consists of sitting and former Members of Congress and state legislators, local government officials at all levels, and Republican Party officials and activists.  They will work under the direction of Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor, Attorney General Mike DeWine, Auditor of State David Yost and Ohio Senate President Keith Faber, the four Kasich for America state co-chairs announced in early September.  Ohio Secretary of State John Husted also endorsed Kasich, but because of his role as Ohio’s chief elections officer, he cannot be officially involved in the campaign.

A county-by-county listing of the Ohio Leadership Team can be viewed here: www.JohnKasich.com/Ohio.
Ohio is a must-win state, and no Republican has ever won the Presidency without carrying Ohio.  According to a Quinnipiac poll released earlier this month, Kasichenjoys strong support in his home state where a record 62% of Ohioans approve of his job performance.
“This is a truly remarkable team, and I am humbled by this tremendous outpouring of support,” said Kasich.  “We know the winning formula -- by cutting taxes, creating jobs and balancing our budget, together, we have gotten Ohioback on track.  It worked here, and it will work in Washington.” 



Gov. Kasich is running for President to help Americans restore our nation, live in safety and pass on prosperity to those who come after us—and he’s got the experience to help us do it. He was reelected last year by a 30-point margin after working with his fellow Ohioans to turn an $8 billion shortfall into a $2 billion surplus, cut taxes $5 billion and create more than 300,000 new private sector jobs.  As chair of the Budget Committee in Congress he led the effort to balance the federal budget for the first time in a generation and served 18 years on the House Armed Services Committee where he helped enact President Reagan's national security agenda.  He has also had a successful career as an investment banker, New York Times best-selling author and at FOX News.  He and his wife Karen have twin teenage daughters and live in their home outside Columbus. You can learn more about him at www.JohnKasich.com
