John Kasich to address Georgia House next week

Ohio Gov. John Kasich on Tuesday will address the Georgia House of Representatives, a person with knowledge of the appearance who was not authorized to speak on the record told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Kasich would be the first presidential candidate this year to take advantage of Speaker David Ralston's policy that any candidate who comes is allowed to address the House. Florida Gov. Jeb Bush came in 2015 -- and was almost upstaged.

Of course, Kasich's planned appearance presumes he survives this weekend's South Carolina  Republican primary, where polls showing him running anywhere from third to fifth in that state's contest.
