COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Republican Gov. John Kasich (KAY’-sik) is joining state officials to help kick off the Ohio State Fair.
Kasich was slated to speak Wednesday at the fair’s opening ceremony. He also plans to present awards to student art contest winners and tour the fairgrounds. The fair runs through Aug 7.
The two-term governor has kept a relatively low profile since abandoning his Republican presidential campaign in May. He spent last week in Cleveland, though stayed away from his party’s nominating convention being held there.
Instead, he spoke to the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, met with the British ambassador to the U.S. and headlined a state party reception at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Kasich hasn’t endorsed Donald Trump, who planned to campaign Wednesday in Toledo.
