Gov. Kasich is, of course, one of the freshmen Republican governors that took over large swathes of the Midwest last election cycle. We discussed both union reform (in the form of SB 5) and the upcoming budget battle - including about why both are so necessary for Ohio.
The Midwest is probably the most interesting region of the country right now, from a political science point of view: there are a lot of things being tried out in the social laboratories which are the individual states. It's best that people pay as much attention as possible to what's going on out there.
