NBC News is reporting that former GOP nominee for president Mitt Romney will campaign in Ohio with presidential hopeful Governor John Kasich:
Romney is not expected to endorse the Ohio governor during the campaign swing, the source said, but it will be the first time Romney has campaigned on behalf of a Republican candidate this cycle.
It's a significant move for the former Republican nominee, who previously recorded campaign telephone "robocalls" for Kasich as well as Marco Rubio.
Romney recently appeared in the headlines when he gave a speech calling presidential candidate Donald Trump a "fraud" and warned of the "dangers" if Trump were to represent the party in the 2016 election.
"I believe with all my heart and soul that we face another time for choosing," said Romney at the time, "one that will have profound consequences for the Republican party and more importantly, for the country."
Romney will campaign for Kasich at events in Canton and the Columbus area. The former presidential candidate's appearance comes one day before the Tuesday primary in Ohio, a must-win for Kasich if he wants to cut into Trump's momentum.
