“Young people like Cincinnati, it’s a cool happening place,” John Kasich told a crowd of Republicans in Cincinnati on Monday.

Kasich also took the opportunity to attack our neighbor to the to the West.   “This is not Indiana where you go to Indianapolis … and then say, ‘Where else are we going to go? Gary?’”

Indiana Governor Mike Pence fired back claiming that “Indiana is the best state in the Midwest to start a business, grow a business and get a job.”

When asked to respond, Kasich spokesman Rob Nichols told the Enquirer:  “Indiana has great people, great companies and great entrepreneurs and we’d love to get them to move to Ohio.  In fact, we’re working hard on that every day.”

Meanwhile, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports that YRC, the fourth largest trucking company in the nation, is shipping nearly 300 jobs from the Cincinnati area to …. you guessed it: Indiana.

Maybe, Mr. Nichols, you should be working a little harder on the jobs thing, and trash talking a little less.
