COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is bringing his campaign to Ohio ahead of the state’s important March 15 primary.
Trump is scheduled to appear Tuesday at a hangar at Port Columbus International Airport. It marks his second campaign stop in Columbus, where GOP rival John Kasich is governor.
Kasich has repeatedly said he’s confident he will win his home state, despite some polls showing Trump prevailing. Kasich is scheduled to spend next week in Massachusetts, Vermont and Michigan.
The chairman of the Ohio Republican Party, which has endorsed Kasich, issued Trump a mock welcome, suggesting “only winners” would be allowed at his “yuge, beautiful” event and if “losers, basket cases, choke artists, (or) sweaty people show up, they will be deported.”
