CLEVELAND (AP) - The daily newspaper in Cleveland and Cincinnati are endorsing Republican Gov. John Kasich (KAY’-sik) for re-election.

The Plain Dealer (https://bit.ly/ZPNY04 ) in Cleveland on Friday said Kasich has proven himself an excellent fiscal manager of Ohioans’ money.

The newspaper says Kasich’s bid for a second term has been benefited by the problems within the campaign of Democratic nominee Ed FitzGerald. The Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH’-guh) County Executive earlier this year acknowledged that he went years without a permanent driver’s license.

The Cincinnati Enquirer (https://cin.ci/1FMb7RY ) endorsed Kasich earlier this week, saying he has done a competent job and overseen a gradual improvement in the state’s economy.

The Cincinnati newspaper also said Kasich has shown his independence by pushing through the expansion of Medicaid.
