This week, Ohio Gov. John Kasich is expected to become the 15th Republican candidate to run for in the 2015 presidential race.
He has not actually confirmed yet he is running, although the big announcement is after months of speculation is finally expected Tuesday at Ohio State University, his alma mater.
But new ads titled "John Kasich's for Us" and New Day for America - "Us," already are on You Tube and expected to begin airing in at least New Hampshire soon.
They boast his experience in balancing budgets, "turning around Ohio's economy," creating more than 300,000 jobs, cutting taxes by $5 billion and turning an $8 billion budget deficit into a $2 million surplus.
"The most important thing in leadership is not what you say, it's what you do," Kasich says in one of them.
He has announced return trips to key primary states on what are expected to be his first visits as an official Republican presidential hopeful.
He has scheduled town hall events in New Hampshire next Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
The second-term governor and former congressman then plans an event in Summerville, South Carolina, Friday morning, his sixth visit in recent months to the first southern primary state in 2016.
Kasich plans a town hall in Des Moines, Iowa, Friday afternoon.
