Kasich said in a statement Thursday that he believes Kansas is an important state and his campaign plans to be competitive there. “Don’t worry about me and Hillary, I am from Ohio, she won’t beat me there”. Gov. Kasich may have left Lehman Brothers after it went bankrupt, set in motion the bad Great Recession, but Lehman Brothers never left John Kasich. His moderate positions stand in stark contrast to many of his GOP rivals.
“A lot of them do jobs that they’re willing to do and, uh, that’s why in the hotel you leave a little tip”, said Kasich before a small group inside the Shady Canyon Golf Club, nestled in a gated Irvine neighborhood. He also backs immigration reform that would grant the nation’s estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants a path to legal residency.
During Wednesday night’s debate, Kasich remained relatively out of the fray while the other candidates battled it out. “There are ways to do it without having to shut the government down”.
“I’m not anxious about making a strong impression”, said Kasich in a CNN interview. “But we have virtually the entire world, including our friends in the Arab world, signing up for this agreement. We can’t abide by the fact they violated it.’ In addition to that, if we have the intelligence that they’re on the verge of building a nuke, I think military action is something that has to be strongly considered”. “They violate the deal, we put on the sanctions”.
When Gov. Kasich appears on stage later today, at the second GOP presidential debate held in California at the Reagan Library, he won’t say one discouraging word about his poor performance. When asked which one of the Republican candidates they would like to see the Republican Party nominate for President in 2016, except for the two leaders, all other Republicans can do no better than single digits.
