The imprint of those three former governors on the state's economy still remains, even though the current crop of Republicans try hard to blame Malloy and anyone else but themselves for the problems that were created during those administrations. Troy Balderson, who is running in Tuesday's special election for an open congressional seat against Democrat Danny O'Connor, the Franklin County recorder. The 12th district has a higher percentage of people 25 and older with college degrees than any other district in the state, and Trump's popularity there has waned.

But despite Trump's bluster on Twitter yesterday, polls have shown the race in what's normally a safely red district to be a statistical dead heat. "And we're doing a lot of things people don't even know about".

"Suburban women in particular here are the ones that are really turned off", Kasich said. "And you add to that the, you know, millennials, you - you have it very close".

Trump didn't circle back to his criticism of basketball star LeBron James, who a couple of days earlier he tweeted was stupid after James slammed the president during an interview about the charter school he's opening. Kasich said Balderson told him, "Well, I don't have anything to do with it".

"Republicans have gone from about 30, 31 percent down to about 25 percent", of the electorate, Kasich said.

In a separate tweet, Trump previewed his message for the Columbus-area rally saying that while Balderson "is strong" on issues like crime and immigration, "his opponent is a puppet of Nancy Pelosi/high taxes".

"I think Donald Trump decides where he wants to go", Kasich said of the president's appearance, where after introducing Balderson and praising him, he then focused of his own agenda and his litany of complaints about the media.

"The President?' He said, 'No, I didn't, '" Kasich responded.
