Campaign Message Makeover, Ohio's Presidential Drought, Statehouse Preview

Featured Audio

Ohio Governor John Kasich made a concerted effort to go positive on the campaign trail and is staying above the in-fighting that is taking up a lot of time between some of the other candidates.  We'll talk about how Kasich's campaign message has transformed and more importantly how some observers have noted that the message has rubbed off on the candidate himself.
