COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Gov. John Kasich has set the date for his annual State of the State speech after a set of crucial primaries he faces as a Republican presidential contender.

Kasich’s spokesman said Tuesday he’ll give the address April 6 at Peoples Bank Theatre in historic Marietta, along the Ohio River in southern Ohio. It’s the consecutive fifth year he will deliver the speech outside the Statehouse in Columbus.

Kasich made history in 2012 by taking the event on the road for the first time in recent state history with a speech in eastern Ohio’s Steubenville. He’s since taken it to Lima, Medina  and Wilmington.

The speech is much later than usual this year. Kasich has been traveling extensively this year as he makes a bid for the White House.
