GLASTONBURY, Conn. (WTNH) — John Kasich made his second campaign stop in Connecticut on Friday in Glastonbury.

The line wrapped around Glastonbury High School as it was a packed house, standing room only. Presidential candidate John Kasich made his entrance and danced way to the stage, then got down to business. The voters got to ask him questions in a town hall-style forum. He says he doesn’t expect to win Connecticut.

“No we are looking at delegates. We want to gets delegates here. And I don’t know how we are going to do yet I suspect will get delegates coming out of here,” said Kasich.

After the rally, the Ohio Governor and presidential candidate came backstage and met with political leaders from Connecticut, and then the media, where his focus turned from politics to the mass shooting of eight people execution style.

“When people like that die and people bleed, we all do, all over the country. It is a terrible, terrible thing and we just have to find out who did this and bring them to justice,” said Kasich.

He talked about the national debt as a debt clock ran behind him. He talked about terrorism, and running America with class. Something the voters responded to, including six-year-old Logan Lacroix from Glastonbury.

“My candidate is John Kasich. I think he is the only adult in the room. So that’s why I am rooting for him.”

“How old are you?”


“And you know who the adults are in the room?”
