COLUMBUS, Ohio— Republican presidential candidate John Kasich is returning to New Hampshire for a week of campaign events across the state.
Kasich has set his sights on a strong performance in the state’s first-in-the-nation primary Feb. 9 to break him from the crowded GOP pack.
The Ohio governor has struggled to gain traction with his campaign, but he says he is not discouraged.
Kasich plans a town-hall meeting Monday in Manchester. He’s scheduled to speak Tuesday at a forum on addiction that will take place in Hooksett and at a student convention in Manchester.
His campaign says Kasich will hold his 50th town-hall meeting in New Hampshire on Wednesday in Hooksett.
The governor plans other stops during the week in Derry, Concord, Hudson, Hampton and Exeter.
