SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Republican presidential candidate John Kasich made time to tour a welfare operation run by the Mormon church between a Utah fundraising stop and a town-hall meeting in Iowa.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1NViITs) that Gov. Gary Herbert and church representatives joined the Ohio governor for a Wednesday afternoon tour of Salt Lake City’s Welfare Square.

Kasich called The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints welfare program an illustration of loving your neighbor. He toured the faith’s store and cannery and asked questions about logistics.

Earlier in the day, Kasich attended a fundraiser luncheon in downtown Salt Lake City.

The Ohio governor is doing well in New Hampshire polls but lagging behind GOP front-runners nationally.

Herbert hasn’t endorsed any Republican candidates but says he leans toward those with gubernatorial experience.
