Kasich to deliver election-year address in NE Ohio

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio Gov. John Kasich takes his State of the State speech on the road again Monday, as he heads into the northeast Ohio home turf of Democratic gubernatorial rival Ed FitzGerald.

Kasich delivers his annual policy agenda as he faces a re-election bid this fall.

The Republican governor has signaled that he doesn't intend to shy away from major initiatives just because it's an election year. He's expected to plug fresh ideas involving education, job training and economic development in the speech at the Performing Arts Center in Medina.

Medina is home to GOP House Speaker William Batchelder, who's winding up a 46-year career in public service. Kasich has said he selected the location as a tribute.
