The farmer featured in a radio ad for Governor John Kasich's re-election campaign airing across rural Ohio sits on the board of Columbus-based Nationwide Insurance. 

Paulding County soybean farmer Terry McClure  is also a former chair of the boards of agribusiness specialty lines affiliated with the company. Democratic gubernatorial candidate Ed FitzGerald's campaign says  McClure's extensive business interests do not match those of the everyday Ohioans portrayed in the ad. Kasich's campaign says McClure exemplifies a group of Ohioans who benefited from the repeal of Ohio's estate tax.
