John Kasich Delivers Final 'State Of The State' Address

State of Ohio
Governor's office

Gov. John Kasich delivered his final "State Of The State" address on Tuesday, from Otterbein University in Westerville. His speech will began at 7 p.m. You can stream it below, courtesy of ideastream.


Kasich said listeners can expect a "very odd" final State of the State speech from him.

Playing with expectations for the speech isn't new for the governor. After union-rights protesters interrupted his first speech in 2011, he became the first governor in modern Ohio history to take the address outside Columbus.

That has become tradition, with Cabinet officials visiting the host city to stage events that show off the locale, tout policy initiatives and connect with local officials.

Returning to his hometown of Westerville, Kasich is likely to talk about guns, education, job growth and possibly his ambitions for after office. He's become a regular on national politics TV shows, and has long been rumored to be considering another presidential campaign.

Following the speech, Ohio Public Radio's Karen Kasler will provide analysis.
