Kasich schedules town hall event in Noblesville

April 21, 2016

Ohio Gov. and Republican presidential candidate John Kasich is coming to Noblesville next week.

Kasich will hold a town hall from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Hamilton County Fairgrounds, which is located at 2003 Pleasant St.

Doors will open at 10 a.m.

In addition, Kasich's campaign has scheduled a watch party for following the primary results on Tuesday, April 26. Voters in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island will choose candidates on that day.

The event, which will be attended by Kasich, will begin at 7 p.m. at the Omni Severin Hotel, 40 W. Jackson Place, in Indianapolis.

Kasich’s visit rounds out appearances in Indiana by the GOP presidential candidates. Front-runner Donald Trump held a rally Wednesday at the Indiana State Fairgrounds, and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is visiting Indianapolis on Thursday.

Cruz will speak at an Indiana Republican Party dinner, where tickets cost $150 each and up. More than 800 people are expected to attend.

He is also expected to stop at Shapiro’s Delicatessen and meet with Gov. Mike Pence, who Trump also met with on Wednesday.

Pence hasn't yet endorsed a presidential candidate but says he's willing to meet with all the candidates.
