President Donald Trump arrives in OH for rally

"The best-case scenario is that the presence of the president reminds not only Republicans but center-right voters that there's a special election on Tuesday", Doug Preisse, chairman of the Franklin County Republican Party said Thursday.

"It's really kind of shocking because this should be just a slam dunk [for Republicans] and it's not", Kasich said.

"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. "And we're doing a lot of things people don't even know about". "And you add to that millenials, you have it very close".

"I asked [Balderson] the other day, 'Why are you bringing Trump in?'" Kasich recalled.

Kasich, who ran against Trump for the 2016 Republican nomination and is a prominent critic of the president, also commented on Trump's holding a rally in OH on Friday for Balderson.

"I asked him, I said, 'Troy, why- Did you invite Trump in here?"

He also gave an onstage hug to Rep. Jim Jordan, who is under siege after allegations that, as an assistant wrestling coach at Ohio State University, he knew of alleged sexual abuse by a team doctor but did not report it. Jordan, who has denied the charge, has announced his plan to run for speaker of the House.

Trump tweeted late Friday that James was interviewed "by the dumbest man on television", CNN anchor Don Lemon, but that he "made Lebron look smart, which isn't easy to do". He defiantly questioned the idea that historically, the party that controls the White House suffers in the midterms, declaring "but I say why?"

Trump critic Susan Lindquist says she's trying to change one person's mind at a time about the president, who she says is destroying the country.
