Republicans John Kasich and Chris Christie have both made a strong showing in New Hampshire a top priority. And after signing the required paperwork and handing over the $1000 filing fee, both men were quick to praise the judgment of New Hampshire voters, and tout the effect of a strong local showing.

"This is the way to do it. Forget me, this is a great process. I have confidence that the people of New Hampshire make really good choices and then then present it to the country."

That was John Kasich. Here's Chris Christie:

In the spring and summer of 1999, then Ohio Congressman John Kasich was in the midst of his first presidential campaign in New Hampshire. As we've reported elsewhere, it was a campaign with some striking similarities to his current run.

Despite the fact that Kasich's earlier presidential bid lasted just a few months, it created its fair share of iconic New Hampshire Primary moments.

When talking to voters on the campaign trail, Ohio Gov. John Kasich likes to sum up the last time he ran for president in New Hampshire with a story. It starts with him talking to a potential supporter in Bow in 1999.

It was a history making day - at least for Seacoast Republican Women President Jo Horvath. "For the first time in the history of the Chili Fest," she told the crowd, "we have run out of chili."

Horvath and other GOP supporters were hopeful this was a sign of enthusiasm for the party's large field of presidential hopefuls, some of whom took part in the annual fundraiser at the Stratham farm of Doug and Stella Scamman.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich didn't take kindly to President Obama's recent decision to rename Mt. McKinley to its Native American name, Denali.

"If I become president, I’m going to name it back to Mt. McKinley," Kasich said, speaking to NHPR's Morning Edition.

The Alaskan mountain - the highest peak in North America - had been named after former President William McKinley, an Ohio native.

"This is not something we appreciate or agree with in Ohio," Kasich said. "I don’t know why (President Obama) had to do this."

Six GOP presidential candidates visited Londonderry High School Wednesday for a forum on K-12 education. The Republicans largely agreed that federal bureaucracy is behind many of the problems in public education and that more school choice is the solution.

Several presidential candidates have put New Hampshire at the very center of their campaign strategies this year. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul has called New Hampshire "must-win," while Ohio Governor John Kasich hopes success in the Granite State will help make up for a late entry into the very large GOP field. In campaign tours through the state this week, however, the two candidates' prospects seemed headed in very different directions.

Ohio Governor John Kasich wraps up a three-day swing through New Hampshire today, his first stretch of campaigning since officially joining the race for the Republican presidential nomination this week.

In front of crowds in Nashua and the Seacoast, Kasich’s stump speech was essentially an annotated version of his life story -- a  weaving together of what he calls his record of working across party lines with a personal history rooted firmly in the middle class.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich is back in New Hampshire and capitalizing on television ads he's airing in what he views as a must-win state.

The two-term Republican arrived back in the state on Sunday, and on Monday visited with small business groups in Portsmouth, Rochester and Barrington.

Ads that began airing last week notably label the 62-year-old Kasich a conservative, though most consider him more moderate than much of the crowded GOP field.

Ohio’s Republican Governor and potential presidential candidate John Kasich stopped in Portsmouth Thursday to test his appeal with a handful of Seacoast Republicans. Kasich was the 10th presidential hopeful to luncheon with Renee Plummer and her politically active friends. Some consider Plummer the region’s most active Republican networker.

Kasich, a longtime congressman, former Fox TV host, and current Ohio governor, says he knows how to navigate Washington bureaucracy. And, he said – his administration would be sensitive to issues like mental illness and drug addiction.

Ohio Governor John Kasich is back in New Hampshire for his third trip so far this year.

The presidential hopeful has not officially entered the GOP race and says that decision hangs on whether he can raise enough money, but would not specify how much that was.

On Wednesday Kasich mingled with New Hampshire lawmakers at The Barley House in Concord where he touted his record for small business issues and taxes, but ducked invitations from lawmakers to bash other candidates in the race such as Hillary Clinton and Marco Rubio.
