John Kasich is out with the first TV ad in the 2014 race for governor. The incumbent Republican released an ad this morning titled “Deliver” that focuses on his western Pennsylvania blue-collar roots.

“Here, John Kasich learned the value of a job, the dignity of work, and a passion for helping others. And when he stepped out on his own, those values went with him.”

Kasich’s Democratic rival Ed Fitzgerald sent an email thismorning repeating many of his recent attacks, and underscoring Kasich’s support of collective bargaining limits that were eventually repealed.

Listener Comments:

John Kasich is the biggest con-man in America. He will say one thing and then do the opposite. He is terribly successful at fooling the public and he is working hard at doing it again. Unfortunately, most people pay no attention to politics. If a guy sounds honest they take him at his word. At their peril. Kasich has become a rich man and he represents only the rich. He will say he represents the middle class, but he tried his best to destroy labor unions in Ohio. He has worked for Wall Street in the past and is working for them still. Don't be fooled by the smooth talk.
