Here’s Kasich’s spokesman Rob Nichols Mansfield News Journal in response to Governor Strickland’s recent campaign appearance there:

Because of Ted Strickland’s mismanagement, Ohio still has higher unemployment than every neighboring state but Michigan, and we’re recovering more slowly,” Nichols wrote in an e-mail to the News Journal. “Relief is coming, however, and John Kasich encourages Ohioans to stay positive and hang in there because if he’s elected governor in November, we’ll be able to reduce spending and begin reducing taxes so we can revive the economy and create jobs.

Perfect answer to Hillary’s earlier claim to be like Rocky:

“I know there’s been some talk about Rocky Balboa over the last couple of days. We all love Rocky,” but, he added, “last time I checked, I was the underdog in this state.”

This guy is good. Real good.
