Presidential candidate John Kasich coming to Memphis

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - As Super Tuesday closes in, more candidates are setting their sights on the Mid-South.

Ohio Governor John Kasich will be in town on Friday.

The Republican presidential candidate will host a town hall event at the Holiday Inn at University of Memphis beginning at 6 p.m.

Kasich joins the list of other presidential hopefuls to visit the Mid-South, including his Republican opponent Ben Carson, who came to West Memphis, Arkansas, Democratic nominee hopeful Hillary Clinton visited Memphis, and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, who recently made a stop back in Memphis to campaign for his wife.

Although he didn't stop in Memphis, Marco Rubio made a stop in Franklin, Tennessee, over the weekend.
