  • Medical marijuana legalization sent to Ohio governor

    Associated Press ^ | May 25, 2016 11:11 PM EDT | Julie Carr Smyth
    A medical marijuana legalization bill has been sent to Ohio Gov. John Kasich in an effort by state lawmakers to offset support for a proposed fall ballot measure. The measure cleared the Ohio Senate by just three votes, and the House followed by OKing Senate changes 67-28. The proposal, which Kasich has not committed to signing, would bar patients from smoking marijuana or growing it at home, but it would allow its use in vapor form for certain chronic health conditions. It garnered both support and opposition among Republicans and Democrats. Supporters recalled emotional testimony from chronic pain sufferers and...

    Washington Post ^ | 05/24/2016
    Kasich believes holding onto his delegates is a smart play in a campaign season that has been wild and unpredictable, an aide explained. The governor also thinks his delegates could become leverage to encourage Trump to be a more positive and unifying figure ahead of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, said the aide, who requested anonymity to speak candidly. Sens. Cruz of Texas and Marco Rubio of Florida, who also accumulated delegates before suspending their candidacies, have issued similar directives asking that their delegates remain bound. Kasich's message to party officials in the letters, dated Monday and signed by...

    Washington (CNN)John Kasich signaled Monday that he still harbors deep uneasiness with Donald Trump as the Republican nominee, declining to endorse him and reiterating that he will not serve as Trump's vice president. Even now that he's left the race, Kasich is resisting calls to serve as Trump's No. 2, portraying his pitch and Trump's as fundamentally incompatible. Kasich said he was "not inclined" to run with Trump and that he had "not changed my mind."

John Kasich said Monday that he would not mount a third party bid for the White House, putting an end to budding hopes that the former Republican presidential candidate would reenter the race. "I'm not gonna do that," the Ohio governor told CNN's Anderson Cooper in an exclusive interview, his first since leaving the race. "I gave it my best where I am. I just think running third party doesn't feel right. I think it's not constructive." Kasich acknowledged that...

    With the news that Gov. John Kasich (R-OH) will suspend his fruitless campaign for president Wednesday at 5PM it’s worth asking the obvious question: Why now? Kasich lost every single caucus and primary over the past several months except for his home state of Ohio. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) has more delegates for the nomination than Kasich and he’s been out of the race for weeks. So why stay in as long as he did just to drop out when the race finally comes down to just two candidates? Let’s focus on a few key moments of the past several...

Taking advantage of a narrow opportunity to garner financial support after Cruz ended his White House bid, Kasich's campaign also blasted out a fundraising email to supporters, soliciting donations as the only candidate who can "stop Trump and unify the party." Kasich continues to defend his staying in the race, touting his electability as the only Republican candidate equipped to beat Hillary Clinton in the fall, and hopes his...

The sale, according to the campaign, is the result of new goods available at the Kasich store because of new goods coming in and thanked reporters for getting the word out.

Fifty-six percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents polled from April 29 through May 2 said they would vote for Trump if the election were held today. That’s an 8-point increase from our previous poll, taken last week. And while Trump is up 8 points, the news gets worse for his main competitor, Sen. Ted Cruz. Only 20 percent of voters are still backing the Texas Republican for the nomination, which is...

Trump has 43 percent support in the poll, followed by Ted Cruz with 26 percent and John Kasich with just 17 percent support. Cruz and Kasich announced last weekend a joint effort to deny Trump the nomination. As part of the strategy, Kasich would clear a path for Cruz in the Indiana primary and Cruz would back down in Oregon and New Mexico. But both candidates have walked away from the arrangement since their campaigns' announcement....

    The three GOP presidential candidates hoping to woo Bay Area and state Republicans this weekend should brace for local pushback — especially against one particular feisty candidate. Donald Trump, along with Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich, will be at the California Republican Convention starting Friday. Trump's Friday lunchtime speech at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport in Burlingame is drawing the most controversy.

    Donald Trump will likely wind up winning the most primary votes of any GOP presidential candidate in modern history, the author of the influential Smart Politics blog told The Post on Wednesday. After convincing victories in Tuesday’s primaries in five East Coast states, Trump has roughly 10.1 million votes, about 200,000 more than Mitt Romney got during the entire 2012 primary campaign. And with the primaries ahead — including in populous states such as California, New Jersey and Indiana — the former “Apprentice” ­reality TV star should easily break the modern record of 10.8 million held by George W. Bush...

    A SLOW-TALKER AND A HOMELESS GUY WALK INTO A BAR ... April 27, 2016 Apparently, John Kasich and Ted Cruz are at their most appealing when no one is paying attention to them, which, conveniently, is most of the time. After Cruz won cranky Wisconsin last month -- only the fourth actual election he's won -- voters decided to give him a second look. But two seconds after people said, "OK, let's give this guy a try," he cratered. You might say a little of Ted Cruz goes a long way. Voters can't stand Cruz any more than his Senate...

    For the past few weeks, Republican campaign professionals and conservatives who are seeing the GOP nomination heading into Donald Trump’s hands have been counseling anti-Trump voters not to panic and consoling themselves with the notion that things will turn around for Ted Cruz when the final weeks of the campaign shift to the Midwest and mountain states. After Trump’s astounding five-for-five primary night, by margins that were likely surprising even for Trump fans, it’s now Indiana or bust. If Trump wins the primary next week in the Hoosier State, Cruz is toast and Trump will almost certainly be the Republican...
