HAMILTON, Ohio (AP) - Ohio’s governor will focus on small businesses in a swing through three western Ohio cities.

Gov. John Kasich (KAY’-sik) has Tuesday stops in Hamilton, the Dayton area and Tipp City. The Republican is seeking re-election this November. He will begin the day at Hamilton Caster, a business that makes casters, industrial wheels and other products and dates back more than a century in the Butler County seat.

A campaign announcement with the National Federation of Independent Business/Ohio is planned there. The small business association recently announced its endorsement of Republican Attorney General Mike DeWine’s re-election.

Kasich also plans to meet with owners and patrons at a Dayton-area bowling alley, followed by a small-business panel discussion in Tipp City.

Democratic Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH’-guh) County Executive Ed FitzGerald is challenging Kasich this fall.
