Since he’s running for president, Gov. John Kasich’s State of the State speech yesterday had a feel of special importance.

Gov. John Kasich will leave his presidential campaign behind for a day to deliver his sixth State of the State speech tonight. And continuing a tradition he began in 2012, he’s once again taken the annual address on the road to a new city. This time he’s in Marietta. And residents of that city - and throughout Ohio - will be listening to what he has to say.

The Ohio primary win for John Kasich not only means a possible shift in momentum but more time away from Ohio and on the campaign trail. But the governor’s administration says it's still focused on business at home.

Gov. John Kasich has won his first primary, here in his home state. But it’s not plausible that he’ll be able to get enough delegates to win the nomination outright. And his win makes it more difficult for the other two candidates in the race to win the nomination. So what does that mean for the future of the party as the campaigns journey toward the convention this summer in Cleveland?

Andy Chow

While John Kasich may have gotten a boost from the Ohio Primary win, the delegate math still shows he can't get the amount needed to clinch the nomination. This could mean a heated battle during the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.

Andy Chow

John Kasich and his campaign are hoping the big Ohio Primary win will be a game changer for the rest of the race.  Kasich’s home state supporters hope the victory will sends a statement to the rest of the country.
