HENNIKER, N.H. -- Ohio Gov. John Kasich said Tuesday that he doesn't know if he will run for president again but that in the meantime he's "trying to be a voice that brings about stability and objectivity in our country." Kasich spoke at New England College in New Hampshire, the state where a second-place finish in the 2016 presidential primaries gave him a boost in national popularity. The former Republican candidate said any decision on mounting another White House bid would come at least nine months from now, after he finishes his second term as Ohio governor. However, the term-limited official said earlier Tuesday that "all my options are on the table." When asked about gun violence and school safety, Kasich praised the push for stricter gun laws by students who survived February's mass shooting in Parkland, Florida. "Have you seen them on television the last couple of weeks? Have you ever seen more articulate young people?" Kasich said. "And shame on the adults who are attacking … [Read more...] about John Kasich tells New Hampshire audience he wants to be a voice for ‘stability’

Ohio Gov. John Kasich, when asked about a possible 2020 presidential run, answered: "All my options are on the table." (Fox News) John Kasich says he doesn’t know whether he’ll run for the White House again in 2020.

CLEVELAND -- No one on the planet has a higher opinion of Ohio Gov. John Kasich than Ohio Gov. John Kasich. That's why you hear so little grumbling from Columbus about Kasich spending more time trying to run for president again than being governor. With some people, absence never makes the heart grow fonder. But political puffery has its limits. And some of the stuff that tumbles from this governor's mouth suggests he's become borderline delusional. There's no better example of Kasich's tendency to ignore reality than his recent rhetoric about guns. On March 21, Kasich took his hypocrisy tour to California. In an appearance with that state's former governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Kasich depicted himself as a leader in the campaign for tougher restrictions on firearm purchases. "You can't bury your head in the sand, and I've never understood politicians who played it safe," said Kasich, boasting of the panel he created that recommended some tepid … [Read more...] about Gov.
