Governor John Kasich was met by a crowd at the Bluffton Promenade Wednesday, as he discussed what he says are the most important issues facing our country.
Promoting small business and growing the economy are key points for the candidate
“As our economy begins to do better, I dont believe we should leave anybody behind, not the mentally ill, the drug-addicted, the working poor, we need to make sure that everyone has a chance to rise, including our friends in the minority community,” Kasich says.
“It was enlightening, I think he has a very positive approach and he says a lot of things I believe in, so I am really glad that I stumbled upon this this morning, it was uplifting,” said voter, Kelli Normoyle.
Kasich also talked about cutting federal spending on both sides of the aisle, and when pushed by the crowd–said he will defund Planned Parenthood.
Governor Kasich spoke about several different things, and among those was keeping a positive attitude about the current and future state of our country, something that seemed to really resonate with voters.
“He is for the people, he’s not really trying to slam other candidates, especially other Republican candidates, that’s one thing I really like about him. He’s professional and like they said he’s an adult and we need an adult in the White House,” said Phil Christopher.
“I like how he ended with lets be positive. America needs to be positive, and I think that’s something that we’ve lost sight of. Its a very negative world, and I think positive is the way to go,” Normoyle agreed.
And Kasich says he will maintain that attitude all the way through the Primary on Saturday.
