HANOVERTON, Ohio (AP) — Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump and rival John Kasich are aiming at each other ahead of Tuesday’s critical Ohio primary.

The contest is one of five primaries on Tuesday, and a Kasich victory could be one of the last opportunities to keep Trump from compiling enough delegates to avoid a contested GOP convention this summer.

Trump is calling the Ohio governor weak, and even mocking Kasich’s surname, which stems from his Czech heritage.

Kasich and other GOP rivals continue to criticize Trump for instances of violence at his rallies. Trump says he bears no responsibility for clashes among protesters, his supporters and authorities.

Trump enjoyed a relatively calm campaign swing Sunday, visiting Illinois, Ohio and Florida with only sparing interruptions from protesters and no apparent physical altercations.
