Gov. John Kasich’s decision to skip gubernatorial debate draws mix of criticism, praise

October 21, 2014
For the first time in more than 30 years, an Ohio gubernatorial debate will not include a Republican candidate — something that party opponents are criticizing, while an expert said it might be the right move for the GOP.
