John Kasich Reaches 100th New Hampshire Town Hall, Celebrates by Pegging Journalists With Snowballs

Ohio Gov. John Kasich may have campaigned harder in New Hampshire than any other candidate — on Friday night he’ll hold his 100th town hall in the Granite State.

Kasich was the first 2016 Republican presidential hopeful to reach the 100-town hall milestone, his campaign said.

Today he celebrated in a lighthearted moment with members of the media — by pegging them mercilessly with snowballs.

In a video posted on YouTube, Kasich is seen lobbing snowballs at reporters in the New Hampshire snow between his 99th and 100th town hall events.

Whether due to an attempt to maintain journalistic distance or just plain lack of athleticism, the reporters land very few hits in retaliation. One photojournalist at one point is accused of “using the camera as a shield” — a “total violation,” according to the accuser.
