Ohio Gov. John Kasich spent Friday campaigning in the Midlands. The GOP presidential candidate met with the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce, addressing business leaders in Columbia.

Kasich spent about an hour answering questions, talking about everything from education to the economy.

With a strong finish in the New Hampshire primary, Kasich didn't speak much about his standing but did note he doesn't expect to win in South Carolina. Kasich remained.

"I'm having the greatest time. People are excited. So If I don't win, I go home and my head will be high, I keep my integrity," Kasich said.

He told supporters that his focus isn't so much on his campaign as it is on the country's national debt.

"But to worry about what might happen in the convention when we're running a 19 trillion dollar debt is like saying I'm not going to run out of this building if it catches on fire because I'm worried about getting hit by a meteor," Kasich added.

Some chamber members said if Kasich was elected, he would be good for businesses.

"I wanted to come down and actually experience and hear what he had to say and I think quite honestly, he's not getting all the attention because he's not a loud mouth and isn't obnoxious so he's not getting as much attention as he really deserves," said John Willingham, a health care business professional. 

Kasich participated in Saturday's GOP debate in Greenville and will continue to travel the state in preparation for next Saturday's primary.
