He's one of them, now.
RE: Kasich changed about the time he dumped his first wife.
Don’t know what you mean by dump. I believe it was an amicable divorce.
Kasich was married to Mary Lee Griffith from 1975 to 1980, had no children with her, and Mary has campaigned for him post-divorce.
He is currently married to his second wife, Karen, and they have twin daughters, Emma and Reese.
I don’t think his divorce over 30 years ago has anything to do with this.
