    Former Ohio Republican Gov. John Kasich told CNN Monday he "had to search my conscience" before agreeing to speak at next week's Democratic National Convention in support of presumptive nominee Joe Biden. CNN anchor Burnett disclosed that Kasich had written in then-Sen. John McCain's name for president in 2016, "which is a far cry from actually supporting the Democratic candidate for president. "You were anti-Trump but you were not taking that extra step. What changed?" she asked.

    Monday on CNN’s “OutFront,” former Gov. John Kasich (R-OH), who is set to speak in support of Joe Biden for president at the Democratic National Convention, said Evangelicals’ support for Trump was not “consistent with the things that they believe in as promoted in the Old and New Testament.” Kasich pointed to Democratic presidential nominee former Vice President Joe Biden’s faith as a determining factor in his support. Kasich said, “I would encourage other Republicans to know that it is okay to take off a partisan hat, take off your partisan hat and vote on the basis of what your...

    CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Ohio House Speaker Larry Householder is under arrest in connection with a $61 million federal bribery case, a source close to the investigation said Tuesday. An FBI spokesman confirmed Tuesday FBI agents are on scene conducting law enforcement activity in the area of Householder’s Glenford Farm in Perry County, and it’s connected to an announcement coming this afternoon from federal officials involving $60 million in bribes paid to a state official and associates. He also confirmed it is connected to an announcement earlier this morning from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Ohio related...

    WASHINGTON — The founders of the Lincoln Project, a headline-grabbing new anti-Trump political action committee formed by GOP operatives who describe the president as “crook” and “huckster,” have their own checkered dealings with Russia and the tax man, documents obtained by the Post reveal. Since its inception last November — announced with a blistering New York Times op-ed — the brainchild of George Conway, Steve Schmidt, Rick Wilson and John Weaver has raked in more than $19.4 million dollars, according to FEC filings, and needled President Trump repeatedly with provocative TV ads. But the group — which the National Review...

    Ex-Gov. John Kasich slated to speak at the Democratic National Convention for Joe Biden COLUMBUS, Ohio—John Kasich, the Republican ex-governor of Ohio turned critic of President Donald Trump, is expected to speak at the Democratic National Convention next month in support of Joe Biden, according to the Associated Press. It’s a move that would be unthinkable just a few years ago, when, as governor, Kasich clashed with Democrats on a range of issues, from abortion to collective bargaining for public employees. Kasich is one of a number of high-profile Republicans who intend to work against Trump’s re-election in the closing...

    In the four months since Joe Biden effectively won the Democratic presidential nomination, he has focused on consolidating the party's divergent and often warring factions. As the closing stretch of the campaign nears, that effort will expand to include Republicans disaffected with President Donald Trump. Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a Republican and frequent Trump critic, has been approached and is expected to speak at the Democratic National Convention on Biden's behalf next month, according to a person with direct knowledge of the plans who insisted on anonymity to discuss strategy. Kasich is among a handful of high-profile Republicans likely...

    Monday on CNN’s “Newsroom,” the former Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) said he believed President Donald Trump had damaged the brand of the Republican Party to the point of a “meltdown.” Host Kate Bolduan said, “The Republican Party is—many times you and I have talked on this topic of the party struggling to deal with Donald Trump since the beginning of this presidency, the division that he stirs up. On the virus the president now denying the facts that he’s trying to sell that it’s 99% harmless and it’s life and death. I mean, we talk about responsibility quite a...

    The Washington Post's glowing profile of Stacey Abrams last week is just the latest effort of legacy media lionizing failed Democratic candidates. The Washington Post ran a glowing profile of failed Democrat Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams Thursday that better fits a paid campaign advertisement than a close and critical look at a potential vice president. In the Post’s cheerleading piece aptly headlined, “The Power of Stacey Abrams,” the legacy outlet paints a gallant portrait of a woman who has never won a statewide election as a progressive superhero ready to heed her own calls to serve in the nation’s...

    VIDEO Don Lemon went BERSERK following President Trump's address to the nation on Wednesday night because his Never Trumper guest, former Ohio governor John Kasich, would not criticize the speech. Lemon acted like a mental case because he didn't like a clarification that the announced travel ban from Europe would not include U.S. citizens. His tantrum over this was made to look even more ridiculous when Lemon admitted that he didn't think the clarification was terrible. At least we won't need a testing kit to detect Lemon's severe TDS since it is obviously out in the open.

    CNN anchor Don Lemon had a "total meltdown" according to critics on Wednesday night after a guest on his show told him that President Trump's coronavirus address from the Oval Office was "fine." Lemon, who has repeatedly insisted that he is 'not a partisan,' had on former 2016 presidential candidate-turned-CNN contributor John Kasich to discuss the latest developments in the Trump administration's handling of the coronavirus outbreak. The anchor accused Trump of "misrepresenting" the travel ban that was set on Europe after the White House offered clarification on what was affected. "Look, I watched the address tonight and I thought...

    MANCHESTER, N.H. - Embittered “Never Trump” Republicans tied to former Ohio Gov. John Kasich have secretly schemed to assist Joe Biden’s campaign - because they think he’s the only Democrat who can beat the president and help them get “revenge,” The Post has learned. Emails obtained by The Post show that two top staffers from Kasich’s failed, 2016 primary campaign and Ohio’s former GOP chairman, a Kasich ally, were among those involved in efforts to boost support for the former vice president in last week’s botched Iowa caucus and Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary. Funding for the plan came largely from...

Headlining the group are former presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, former governors Arnold Schwarzenegger and John Kasich, Leonardo DiCaprio, Sting and Ashton Kutcher, the New York Times reports.

    On Tuesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360,” former Gov. John Kasich (R-OH) said Republican lawmakers should be calling for the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump to continue. Cooper asked, “Governor, Kasich what’s if going to take for other Republicans on the Hill to actually speak their minds on this? Assuming that there are some who, you know, believe what the president did was wrong that it was wrong to ask China to investigate the Bidens, a repressive regime like China not known for their fair and impartial investigations at the very least, is it going to take just...

    CNN anchor Don Lemon on Monday asked Ohio governor-turned-CNN commentator John Kasich if he was "confused" by the transcript of President Trump's call with the Ukrainian president and then went on to suggest that he's a Trump "apologist." Lemon insisted that "anybody with half a brain" knows what Trump was saying to President Volodymyr Zelensky after reading the transcript and called it "obvious." "Wait, wait, wait, you can't say stuff like that," Kasich reacted. "You can't say that."

    JOHN KASICH: It's all very, it's a terrible situation in terms of that transcript, Alisyn, but the question is, does one phone call, at this point in time, lead to impeachment? Mitch McConnell says it's laughable. I mean, he is the Senate leader. You know, we have the gentlemen you just quoted from Ohio, Mike Turner says, you know, it's not OK. I think it's absolutely worth condemning. And, by the way, let me point out, Alisyn, there is nobody, no one inside the Republican Party who has fought harder against Donald Trump than I have. Not personally, but against...

    John Kasich has a reputation for being vehemently opposed to President Donald Trump. In fact, when the Republicans nominated Trump in Cleveland in 2016, the governor of Ohio at the time, Kasich, couldn't even be bothered to show up at the venue. Therefore it would be not be unusual if CNN's New Day host Alyisyn Camerota expected to hear a sympathetic reaction to the impeachment of Trump from Kasich on Friday. However, imagine her surprise when Kasich poured cold water on the subject of impeachment. Camerota provided some pushback but the real entertainment value of the segment is watching the...
