GOP stars rally for Kasich in Ohio

The Republican Governors Association took its cross-country road show to Ohio on Friday to stir up support for GOP gubernatorial nominee John Kasich, whose fight against Democratic Gov. Ted Strickland has become one of the closest and most unpredictable races in the country. 

Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, the RGA's chairman, joined Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie in Lebanon, Ohio where over 400 cheering Republicans crowded into a tiny conference room to catch a glimpse of three GOP stars, each of whom may one day seek the presidency.

Aiming to tie Strickland to some of President Obama's more controversial policies, the governors took turns bashing the health care reform bill, government bailouts of troubled industries and the sizeable federal deficit.
