COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio Gov. John Kasich (KAY'-sik) plans to announce today that he'll be running for president.

The second-term Republican governor and former congressman launches his campaign at Ohio State University.

Kasich is known for his unfiltered style and policies that are not always in line with his party.

He's been one of the few Republican contenders to resist going after the chief Democratic prospect, Hillary Rodham Clinton, or President Barack Obama.

Kasich says if he has to trash people to win, count him out.
