66 GOP delegates.

143 Democratic delegates.

A governor winning his home state is ordinarily nothing to roil the waters, but what's ordinary in 2016?

This is swing-state Ohio, after all, and another big cache of delegates who all go to the winner.

Looking strong in Florida, Trump added late events in Ohio to try to fend off the governor and avoid complications on his path to the nomination: namely a contested convention. Kasich was likely to exit the 2016 race absent a win.

Sanders upset Clinton in Michigan and fought to replicate that in Ohio, if not Illinois or Missouri. He spoke to the economic worries of Rust Belt voters in going hard after Clinton on her past support of trade agreements that he says undermined America's manufacturing core.  On that, the liberal Vermont senator and the ideologically indistinct Trump were in agreement.
