Ohio Governor Tours, Praises Church's Welfare Program: "I Wish All America Knew About This"


"It's the power of faith that drives this entire population and it's the power of faith that has all that grain stored right up there to feed people who need help," said presidential candidate John Kasich.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich flew into Utah on Wednesday, attending a luncheon fundraiser and touring The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' welfare operation before heading to Iowa for a town-hall meeting.

"Here is an illustration that it's about loving your neighbor as you love yourself," Kasich said. "It's remarkable when you look at the total dedication of the entire community. It's so important for people to see these kinds of messages. I wish all of America knew about this."

Kasich, along with Gov. Gary Herbert and representatives from the LDS Church, toured the faith's store and cannery, where Kasich asked questions about the logistics of the operation.
