The Ohio election was one of the biggest of 2016.
I was in Columbus for the first day of campaigning for my wife, Michelle, and her two young children.
They were attending the Buckeye State’s annual graduation.
This is a time when I’m honored to have my wife and family here in the state, and I’m looking forward to seeing them again in the fall, my family said in a statement.
For Ohio, it was a day to remember.
It’s been a year of upheaval and change, and for many voters it was also a year filled with political drama, including the resignation of Gov.
Kasich was pushed out in early January, and he resigned the following week.
The resignation sparked an uproar in Ohio and across the country, with Kasich saying he had made the best decision he could to stay in office, and his former campaign chairman, John Weaver, resigning over a similar issue.
Weaver was later arrested for assaulting a female staffer.
But Kasich stayed in office and his administration struggled to keep the state from slipping into a recession.
As the election approached, Kasich’s popularity soared, with the Ohio GOP saying he won the state by about 2 percentage points.
The Ohio Democratic Party said it was still “deeply disappointed” in the outcome of the election.
In addition to Kasich, Trump received about 4 million votes and the Green Party about 2.3 million votes.
The final results were still being tallied.
If you live in Columbus, you can see them on the city’s website, which lists results for the Columbus City Council, State Assembly, Senate and all of the state’s congressional districts.
The Columbus Dispatch, which has been covering the election through Election Day, will be updating its live blog throughout the day.
