Republican Presidential candidate John Kasich made a campaign stop in Utica on Friday.

The Ohio Governor held a Town Hall Meeting before a crowd about 400 people at the Jorgensen Athletic Center at Mohawk Valley Community College.

Kasich talked about jobs and the economy, saving social security, the importance of a balanced budget and term limits. He also spoke about the probablity of an open GOP Convention in July.  He says no one will have enough delegates to win on the first ballot, making it "really interesting."

Kasich was introduced by Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente, who called Kasich the "best qualified" candidate for President.

Today's event was in stark contrast to candidate Donald Trump's visit to Rome on Tuesday, which attracted nearly 6,000 people.

The New York Presidential Primary will take place next Tuesday, April 19, 2016.
