In The Region:

Gov. John Kasich made a stop in the Dayton area yesterday to hype up two major job announcements. But WYSO’s Lewis Wallace reports for Ohio Public Radio that the election season is getting underway -- and job counts are getting political.

Gov. Kasich is pushing two pieces of good job news: Procter and Gamble is opening a distribution warehouse near the Dayton airport, and the Fuyao auto glass company is taking over a large part of the old GM plant in Moraine.

“You know when I think about 800 jobs at Fuyao, I think about 800-plus jobs today at P&G, I think about 1,600 families that are gonna do better, I mean isn’t that cool? That’s as good as it gets.”

But the campaign for Kasich’s opponent, Democrat Ed Fitzgerald, issued a response to the Dayton event, saying the city’s job growth has sputtered since Kasich took office.

This is Lauren Hitt with the Fitzgerald campaign.

“The reality in Dayton is not what Gov. Kasich would like us all to believe that it is. People in that community have been struggling for years.

Unemployment in Ohio is way down from 2010, but tens of thousands have also left the workforce.

New state unemployment numbers are due out today.
