Thousands of people are pouring into the Ohio State Fair for opening day.

That included Gov. John Kasich.

Kasich had his own projects to show off during his annual tour of the fair.

Kicking off the Ohio State Fair was Gov. John Kasich’s first big event following the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. And although the convention is over, a single heckler tried to interrupt Kasich’s speech during the opening ceremony, calling him to endorse Donald Trump.

Ohio Tea Party groups have decided to back Donald Trump in the race for the White House.

The groups will be teaming up with the NRA, who will provide funds for them to campaign for the candidate.

We the People Convention president Tom Zawistowski says the partnership happened because many Ohio Tea Party members are also members of the NRA.

He says unlike the Ohio Republican establishment, the NRA is committed to electing Trump.
