In The Region:

The day after he filed his paperwork to officially become a candidate for re-election, Gov. John Kasich spoke before a group that he’ll be dealing with throughout the campaign -- newspaper professionals. As Statehouse correspondent Andy Chow reports, the governor talked about several issues, including the possible friction among Republicans and members of the Tea Party.

Gov. John Kasich will not face a Tea Party challenger in the May primary, though Tea Party groups had tried to come up with a team to run against him – largely because of their opposition to Medicaid expansion. But the governor told the Ohio Newspaper Association that he and Tea Party members share many of the same concerns, such as the national debt.

“I don’t sort of look at Republicans and say, ‘Are you wearing a Tea Party shirt?’ or whatever. They’re just part of our party. And not just part of our Party ...Anybody’s who’s concerned about the growth of government, the effectiveness of government, the spending of government.”

Kasich then discussed his faith saying that society, in his lifetime, has been gradually creating rules to take the place of a personal guidance system based on values and responsibility.
