A Kasich volnteer says the campaign upbeat ahead of Tuesday's New Hampshire presidential primary.

Hoping for a good showing in Tuesday's New Hampshire presidential primary, Governor Kasich continues to campaign in the Granite State.

It only took three votes, but Kasich was able to win the first contest in the tiny town of Dixville Notch, which counted votes early this morning.

Using vacation time, state worker Matt Bruning spent last weekend in New Hampshire stumping for the Governor.

Bruning says the governor's campaign staff appears to be upbeat as the primary approaches.

"It seems like everybody was very positive; very optimistic that this will go very well for Governor Kasich. Again, just based on the feedback we're getting from people in New Hampshire, it seems like things are going well. So, I think there is a sense of optimism," Bruning said.

Bruning says New Hampshire voters he encountered this weekend take the primary seriously and are well versed in the issues that face the next president of the United States.
