YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – A group of Republicans will load a bus Tuesday morning and head to Columbus to hear Ohio Governor John Kasich announce his candidacy for president of the United States.
The bus will leave from the Mahoning County Republican Party headquarters at 6:30 a.m.
Right now, a group of 20 people have a seat on the bus to support governor Kasich’s announcement.
Tracy Winbush, vice-chairman of the Mahoning County Republican Party, said it is not often that you see someone who has the opportunity to become president.
“Governor Kasich has done great things for the state of Ohio. I think he can do great things for the nation and to be able to take a bus from the Mahoning Valley, which is a strong hold on the other side, and show him our support – I think it is a wonderful thing,” Winbush said.
Anyone interested in joining the group on the trip can register until 9 p.m. Monday by calling Winbush at (330) 720-0000. The cost of the trip is $50.
