Kasich turns sights to must-win Ohio to keep campaign alive

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — John Kasich is hoping high approval ratings in Ohio and a robust get-out-the-vote operation will deliver him a victory in his home state next Tuesday.

But he has yet to win a state and is far behind in the delegate count.

Should he succeed, the governor would deprive Donald Trump of the state’s 66 winner-take-all delegates, further slowing the businessman’s path toward clinching the GOP nomination outright.

Kasich told reporters recently in Detroit that he usually doesn’t make predictions, but he declared: “I am going to win Ohio.”
