Governor John Kasich made a campaign stop in the Dayton area Friday—inside the Fuyao Glass Plant in Moraine. He spent the majority of the town hall meeting talking about job creation.

“When I’m president we’re going to have a shock and awe philosophy to get this country jump started again with more jobs and more unity in the United States of America,” Kasich said.

The crowd was subdued, watching patiently as Kasich spoke among huge crates filled with windshields.

Becky Thornburg from Centerville said she likes the way the governor presents himself.

“I just like the fact that he’s been such a gentleman through this whole election. I don’t like the name-calling," said Thornburg. "It really bothered me. I think it bothered a lot of people.”

The rally did get heated at some points—one woman asked about the governor’s support for cuts that will close the Montgomery County Developmental Center next year.

Kasich is slightly ahead in the polls in Ohio. He’s said he’ll drop out of the race if he doesn’t win his home state.
