Mitt Romney to Campaign for John Kasich in Ohio


Mitt Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, will make his debut on the 2016 campaign trail Monday by stumping with Ohio Gov. John Kasich in a last-ditch push to defeat Donald Trump in that state.

Kasich and Romney will campaign together in North Canton and Westerville on Monday, one day before Ohio’s winner-take-all primary election.

News of Romney’s planned appearance in Ohio was first reported by NBC News and confirmed by a Kasich campaign official.

Romney, a former governor of Massachusetts, is not endorsing a candidate, but has emerged as a leading Trump critic and has been complimentary of and helpful to all three Republicans trying to topple the front-runner: Kasich and Sens. Marco Rubio (Florida) and Ted Cruz (Texas).
