    Former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger said Wednesday that Ohio Gov. John Kasich should run for President again in 2020, challenging incumbent President Donald Trump in the Republican presidential primary. Schwarzenegger made the endorsement in an interview with the Los Angeles Times: “He should run in 2020, yes,” Schwarzenegger said in an interview with The Times when asked whether Kasich, whom he supported over Trump in the 2016 presidential race, should launch another presidential campaign. “Kasich is an extraordinary guy. He’s a man of substance. He’s worked in Washington, he’s worked in local government, he’s worked in statewide government. He has...

    “You cannot have major changes in major programs affecting things like health care without including Democrats from the very beginning and asking them to be constructive,” Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a former Republican presidential contender, told CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday. “So, they have got to reach out across the aisle. And Democrats have to say, we will work with you to improve and fix this plan for people.” Kasich said it would be “pathetic” if Democrats put partisanship above the good of the country. […] Kasich said the “extremes” in both parties should be “marginalized” so “reasonable”...

    (CNN)President Donald Trump wants to pass an immigration reform bill that could grant legal status to millions of undocumented immigrants living in the US. "The time is right for an immigration bill as long as there is compromise on both sides," Trump told reporters Tuesday at the White House. The President is eager to pass a compromise immigration bill in his first term that would stop short of granting a path to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants, but would allow undocumented immigrants who aren't serious or violent criminals to live, work and pay taxes in the US without fear...

    Republican Gov. John Kasich repeated his belief in the importance of the free press Wednesday as tensions between the media and the administration of President Donald Trump remain high. The former congressman and 2016 presidential contender declined to directly take on Trump, who he refused to endorse, campaign with or vote for last year, while speaking to editors and publishers convened by the Ohio Newspaper Association. But Kasich said he wanted to see the industry survive and thrive. “I’d like to stand for all of you, for all of you who have real content, for all of you who’ve decided...

    Because repealing Obamacare wasn’t complicated enough already, Ohio Gov. John Kasich has asked Congress to keep paying for the law’s expansion of Medicaid to working-age adults with no kids and no disabilities.Since Kasich is a Republican, his advocacy for the biggest part of Obamacare — roughly three-fourths of all Obamacare enrollees are on Medicaid, not “marketplace” plans — is a big hit with the legacy press. And like all policies the media love, Kasich’s Obamacare expansion is covered much the same way your parents would report on your first science project.Kasich says Obamacare expansion is a success, and that’s...

    Donald Trump claimed some measure of political revenge against Ohio Gov. John Kasich for shunning his presidential campaign, after helping oust a key Kasich loyalist from atop the state Republican party. Trump threw his support behind Jane Timken, who on Friday narrowly defeated Ohio GOP Chairman Matt Borges. The president-elect even got personally involved, calling members of the 66-person Central Committee to lobby on Timken's behalf. "At first I thought it was a fake phone call," Cincinnati-area committee member Greg Simpson told Cleveland.com. "Then all of the sudden, he's talking to me."

    GOP Governors John Kasich of Ohio and Rick Snyder of Michigan urge lawmakers to protect the Medicaid expansions they say are working in their states. Congressional Republicans knew their push for an immediate repeal of the Affordable Care Act would draw howls of protest from Democrats. But they are now hearing warnings from elected officials who may be harder for them to ignore: Republican governors. In the last week, GOP Governors John Kasich of Ohio and Rick Snyder of Michigan have raised concerns about the impact a full repeal of the health law would have on their states, which rely...
  • Donald Trump gets revenge by dismantling Gov. John Kasich's Ohio Republican Party machine: Analysis

    CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Donald Trump finally exacted revenge. On Friday, the president-elect settled scores with John Kasich and the Ohio governor's Republican machine. The first political casualty: Ohio GOP Chairman Matt Borges. Borges, a key Kasich ally, lost the top job after a series of dramatically deadlocked votes by the state party's Central Committee. Taking his place is Jane Timken, a prominent Stark County activist and donor. Most importantly, she's the person Trump wanted at the helm. Timken initially edged Borges by a single vote but couldn't reach the required majority in the first two rounds of secret balloting. That...

    Arizona – -(Ammoland.com)-On Monday, 19 December, 2016, Ohio Governor John Kasich signed SB 199, a gun law reform bill.  SB 199 does away with gun free zones at airports outside the secure area, school “zones” away from actual school property, and some public buildings. It allows schools of higher education more leeway in setting their own policies. From toledoblade.com: Senate Bill 199 would lift the state’s current ban on carrying concealed firearms in day-care centers, airport terminals, school safety zones, and certain government buildings and would give public colleges and universities the authority to allow weapons on campus. SB 199...

    Their implication is that funds could dry up if sitting chairman Matt Borges, who is aligned with Gov. John Kasich, wins re-election. Kasich refused to back Trump in the general election, and Borges offered support only reluctantly. "While 2016 was a challenging one for many Ohioans, once the nomination was settled, Chairman Borges had the duty to fully support the Republican Party nominee and his campaign. He did not fulfill that duty. His actions split the state party leadership and could have cost us one of the most important elections of our lifetime!" the letter reads.

    On Monday, it was Hillary Clinton who was losing a stream of Electoral College votes to surprising individuals, not Donald Trump. Four Democratic electors in Washington State alone declined to vote for Clinton, who won the state overwhelmingly, and instead threw their votes behind Standing Rock activist Faith Spotted Eagle, former Secretary of State Colin Powell. The Daily Beast reports that Powell, a longtime Republican who supported the Democratic nominee in the last three elections, actually received three of the four rogue votes.

    A Colorado elector who refused to cast his vote for Democrat Hillary Clinton may face criminal charges. Micheal Baca of Denver was one of nine electors from Colorado. The state voted for Clinton Nov. 8. On Monday, the 24-year-old Democrat wore a T-shirt saying “Enough Is Enough” and refused to cast his ballot for Clinton. Moments before, Baca had taken an oath pledging to support the winner of Colorado’s popular vote. Baca was removed from the panel after he voted for Ohio Republican Gov. John Kasich, and Clinton received Colorado’s nine votes....

    Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) on Tuesday signed into law a measure banning abortions 20 weeks after conception, but vetoed a measure that would have outlawed abortion after as few as six weeks.   The bill Kasich vetoed, known as a “heartbeat” bill, passed Ohio’s legislature along mostly partisan lines last week and would have made abortions illegal once a fetus's heartbeat is detected. But even groups that oppose abortion rights believed the measure would fail in the face of an expected court challenge; Ohio Right to Life asked Kasich on Monday to veto the bill. Lower courts have struck...

    COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio Gov. John Kasich on Tuesday advised state electors not to vote for him in an anti-Donald Trump protest. Kasich, a Republican who ran unsuccessfully for president, told The Associated Press Tuesday that he is not a candidate for president, the election was held and Trump was the winner. “The country is divided and there are certainly raw emotions on both sides stemming from the election,” Kasich, in his second and last four-year term, said in a statement. “But this approach, as well meaning as it is, will only serve to further divide our nation, when unity...
