Ohio Gov John Kasich reacts to loss of 300 Amazon jobs to Kentucky

Gov. John Kasich said Amazon picked northern Kentucky over Wilmington in large part because the airport in Covington has plenty of capacity and the Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky metro area has the workforce.

“They were very worried about workforce,” he said at a conference sponsored by The Associated Press in Columbus on Wednesday.

He noted that his administration was heavily involved in wooing Amazon but in the end the state can’t dictate where a company locates.

“They’re still going to be here in our region,” Kasich said.
