John Kasich campaigning in Maryland

john kasichOhio Gov. John Kasich brings his campaign to Maryland this Wednesday.

Kasich will be the first Republican candidate (besides former candidate Ben Carson) to make an appearance in Maryland.

On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton appeared in Baltimore over the weekend and was endorsed by Rep. Elijah Cummings. Bernie Sanders made appearances in Baltimore late last year.

Kasich will be holding a town hall meeting at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday in Savage at Historic Savage Mill. The event is free, but registration is required.

John Kasich has almost zero chance of winning the nomination

Kasich only has 143 delegates so far. If he got all 854 remaining delegates in the primary process he woudn’t be close to the 1,237 required for the nomination. Donald Trump and Ted Cruz may not reach 1,237 either – so Kasich is hanging on by his fingernails in hopes of getting nominated or made running mate at a contested convention.

The most recent poll released on the Maryland Republican Primary has Kasich at 22%, with Cruz (31%) and Trump (41%) both ahead of him.
