COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio Gov. John Kasich’s family is joining him on the presidential campaign trail.

WATCH LIVE: Kasich holds Town Hall in New Hampshire

The Republican governor was slated to hold events Monday across New Hampshire, where his wife and twin daughters plan to participate.

The campaign stops in the key primary state mark the first time the whole family has taken part in Kasich’s presidential events outside Ohio.

Kasich’s stops on Monday included events in Greenland, Rochester and Concord.

Attendees to one of his events on Sunday were encouraged to bring food items, which Kasich’s wife and daughters planned to deliver on Monday to a pantry in Manchester.

Kasich is still seeking to gain national traction in a crowded GOP field and has been polling among the lower tier of candidates.
