Fresh off his town hall at the Bay Ridge Manor with talk show host Montel WIlliams, Ohio governor and GOP presidential contender John Kasich will return to Brooklyn to meet and greet with members of Borough Park’s Orthodox Jewish community tomorrow.
Kasich will be at Shema Koleinu (4302 New Utrecht Avenue), a school catering to children with autism and their families, on Tuesday, April 12, at 1pm.
With New York’s primary election next week, the Ohio governor will also be touring the state, holding town halls in Troy, Saratoga Springs and, later, Watertown, according to his campaign site.
Kasich — who is lagging far behind Donald Trump but ahead of Senator Ted Cruz in the polls — is not the only Republican candidate courting Orthodox Jewish voters in Brooklyn. Cruz hit up a matzah bakery in Brighton Beach last week, even though many in the Sandy-battered neighborhood took issue with the Senator’s presence, since he voted against a crucial relief package for victims of the storm.
