John Kasich: Suburban GOP Women 'Turned Off' by Trump's Chaos

President Donald Trump wants Republican Troy Balderson to represent central Ohioans in Congress – so much so that Trump is rallying to support him

The rally comes hours after Trump denounced arguably Ohio's favorite native son, basketball superstar LeBron James, who just opened a school for underprivileged children there.

"I think Donald Trump decides where he wants to go", Kasich said of the president's appearance, where after introducing Balderson and praising him, he then focused of his own agenda and his litany of complaints about the media.

Trump called Balderson "the guy who will do things" and dismissed Balderson's Democratic opponent, Franklin County recorder Danny O'Connor, as a person nobody knows.

"Republicans have gone from about 30, 31 percent down to about 25 percent", of the electorate, Kasich said.

President Donald Trump has arrived in OH at the Port Columbus International Airport and is appearing Saturday evening at Olentangy Orange High School north of Columbus in support of GOP congressional candidate Troy Balderson.

Republican candidates across the country are attempting to appeal to Trump supporters by seeking to closely align themselves with the president and his agenda. The crowd chanted "speaker of the House", a reference to the possibility that Jordan will seek the speakership after November's midterm elections.

John Kasich warned Sunday the red state's special election Tuesday to replace retiring GOP Rep.

Trump also brought to the stage Ohio Representative Jim Jordan, "a tough cookie".

Trump deleted the tweet naming Stivers and replaced it with one supporting Balderson.

"It's likely in the end that Balderson should be able to win narrowly", he said.

President Donald Trump spent much of his rally on Saturday night trashing CNN and MSNBC, but also took some time to show love to his preferred cable news network, Fox News. Pat Tiberi, who left Congress before his term was up. Troy Balderson is vying for an open House seat in central OH against Democrat Danny O'Connor, a county official.
