Gov. John Kasich said this afternoon that he's still working on his upcoming State of the State speech and declined to give a preview of what he'll talk about.
"I'm still working on it," he said in a phone interview. "It's coming along. I change day-to-day about what I want to say. I'm starting to get to a place where I'm narrowing it down."
Kasich said he had hoped to keep his annual address short, but that might not be possible.
"Too much needs to be said," he said. "Maybe I will talk fast."
Kasich will give his State of the State address at 7 p.m. Feb. 24 in Medina High School's Performing Arts Center before a joint session of the state legislature.
Tickets are being given through a random drawing. Those wishing to attend must apply online by 6 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 18. People receiving tickets will be notified by noon Wednesday, Feb. 19.
