The 2016 Ohio State Fair is officially underway and among the thousands touring the fairgrounds on opening day was Gov. John Kasich. Statehouse reporter Andy Chow was there.

During his traditional tour of the fair, Gov. John Kasich had his own projects to show off as well.

Different departments of his administration could be spotted all around the fairgrounds, from his workforce development vehicle to his drug prevention initiative.
Kasich: “We’re gonna have, I don’t know we don’t know 800 -- 900,000 people here so it’s just a great opportunity to let people know what we have for them in a very real way.”

Kasich only encountered one heckler during his appearance.

Kasich: “The cabinet has been just fantastic…”
Heckler: “Hey endorse Trump, Kasich!”
Kasich: “Somebody screamed but I didn’t hear him.”
The Ohio State Fair will run through August 7.
