COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio Gov. John Kasich (KAY’-sik) is heading back to Iowa this weekend as he tries to gain traction for his 2016 presidential campaign in the early primary state.

Kasich, a two-term governor and former congressman, plans stops in Sioux City and Council Bluffs on Saturday.

While Kasich has landed spots in both primetime Republican debates, neither appearance gave him a huge bounce. He continues to poll toward the bottom of the crowded GOP field.

New Day for America, a super PAC supporting Kasich, began airing new ads this week in New Hampshire emphasizing Kasich’s experience balancing the federal budget.

Kasich hopes to gain some more momentum in Iowa after Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker dropped out of the GOP presidential hunt this week. It will be his third trip there.
