Political pundits were calling it Super Tuesday II. Yesterday, voters in five states – including Ohio – chose the candidate they want representing their party in the November presidential election. Ohio Governor John Kasich won his home state’s primary, picking up his first victory and all 66 Ohio delegates. And increasing the chances of a contested convention in Cleveland this July. Hillary Clinton won the Democratic primary in Ohio.

Ohio Public Radio and Television Statehouse News Bureau Chief Karen Kasler and WVXU political reporter Howard Wilkinson join us to review the results of yesterday’s primaries, and take a look at what might be in store for Governor Kasich between now and November.
