COLUMBUS, Ohio (WKBN) – The Columbus Dispatch is reporting that Donald Trump’s top lawyer is threatening to sue Ohio Governor John Kasich and his super PAC.

Trump’s campaign sent a letter to Kasich stating that if his planned $2.5 million ad campaign contains any messages that are untrue or make Trump look bad, Trump’s campaign will sue. The ad campaign reportedly will question Trump’s ability to serve as president.

Kasich’s super PAC responded to the threat by saying:

Mr. Trump’s been successful in suing his way to financial gain. Unfortunately, you can’t sue your way to the Oval Office… You can’t sue ISIS away. Suing Vladimir Putin won’t evict Russia from the Ukraine. The role of commander in chief requires leadership, not lawyers.

Trump’s campaign will visit Ohio for the first time Monday in Columbus. You can watch WKBN 27 First News Monday for a full report.
