Mon., 9:22 pm: Kasich downs dogs at Warren restaurant


WARREN The lucky charm at the end of John Kasich’s St. Patrick’s Day rainbow Monday wasn’t a pot brimming with gold, but a dish with dogs hot dogs, that is, topped with chili.

Kasich and some of his top aides made an unplanned stop at the famous Hot Dog Shoppe known far and wide for its dogs with sauerkraut, cheese and chili to dine at the Warren landmark and chew the fat with the dinner crowd after talking the latest jobs numbers, Medicaid expansion and other policy initiatives with the Tribune Chronicle and before his appearance at the McKinley Club dinner in Niles.

The Republican ordered two chili dogs and opted to skip cola in favor of water.

“Great, I had two,” said Kasich when asked for his opinion on the meal.
