Former California governor and Hollywood star Arnold Schwarzenegger is lending a hand to John Kasich's presidential bid ahead of the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday.
Kasich's campaign invited supporters to join a Friday tele-town hall that will feature Schwarzenegger.
“Listen, he’s a pal,” Kasich told The Plain Dealer last year when asked about Schwarzenegger. "He’s just been a great friend of mine.
Kasich hosted Schwarzenegger last year at the Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus, Ohio, an annual sporting event that began in 1989. In 2014, Kasich unveiled a statue of Schwarzenegger at the Greater Columbus Convention Center as part of the event.
Schwarzenegger has another tie to the presidential race; the "Terminator" star is replacing GOP front-runner Donald Trump as the host of the reality show "Celebrity Apprentice."
Kasich, meanwhile, landed a celebrity endorsement this week in talk show host Montel Williams, who said in a USA Today op-ed, "we need an adult in the White House."
