    Mike Davis didn't think Donald Trump could get elected. Davis is the kind of Republican who backed Ohio governor John Kasich in the 2016 primaries, the kind of Republican who subscribes to the Wall Street Journal. Davis, 64, is the former mayor of Dunwoody, Ga., a small city in the state's 6th Congressional District, one of the most highly-educated districts in the country. Ultimately Davis voted for Trump, mainly because he was worried about the tilt of the Supreme Court. With the nomination of another conservative justice expected on Monday, following the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch in 2017 and a...

    Republican Ohio Governor John Kasich is pushing Republican leadership to stand up to President Donald Trump on tariffs and immigration. […] Kasich urged Republicans in Congress “to do whatever they can do legislatively” to push back against Trump’s decisions to impose tariffs on several ally nations and end an Obama-era program to protect undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children. …

    TOLEDO, Ohio — Fresh off a victory in Ohio’s primary election, the Democratic nominee for the state’s top office is reaching out to supporters of outgoing Republican Gov. John Kasich, whose policies have alienated many GOP supporters in recent years. Democrat Richard Cordray, who led the federal consumer protection bureau under President Barack Obama, pledged in a video his campaign released Friday that he’ll maintain Kasich’s expansion of Medicaid and the state’s privatized economic development office, which critics say lacks accountability. “Gov. Kasich recently said he’s worried about two issues: Medicaid expansion and JobsOhio. So this message is for Ohioans...

    It is not immediately evident why anyone, or at least anyone outside Ohio, should care much about what John Kasich says or thinks. The lame-duck governor has already run for president twice and lost. He's not a particularly charismatic or appealing figure. And to the extent most people in America know who he is, it's probably from his role as a marginal and somewhat irritating participant in the 2016 Republican primaries. To those in need of a refresher, he was the one who kept talking about how his dad was a mailman. Still, the guy clearly thinks of himself as...
  • Kasich "very, very concerned" about North Korea summit, says U.S. must be "extremely careful"

    Ohio Gov. John Kasich said he is "very, very concerned" about the upcoming meeting with North Korea, and hopes negotiations and any possible future agreement aren't just a "PR show." The Republican made the comments on CBS News' "Face the Nation," after President Trump announced he is reinstating the June 12th meeting with North Korea in Singapore, days after canceling it. Mr. Trump declared the summit a go after meeting with top North Korean official Kim Yong Chol at the White House, before he had even read a letter delivered from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Kasich emphasized that...

    Sunday on MSNBC’s “Kasie DC,” Gov. John Kasich (R-OH) left the door open on another run for president. “[A]ll of my options are on the table,” Kasich said of a potential 2020 run. “I don’t know what I’m going to do. I have no clue. I don’t know what I’m going to do when I current job.” Kasich ran in 2016 for the Republican nod but came up short in that bid to eventual President Donald Trump.

    Ohio Republican Gov. John Kasich expressed frustration with the current state of the Republican and Democratic parties Sunday amid rumors that he could pursue a 2020 presidential run. "I'm still a Republican. I didn't leave the Republican Party. The Republican Party left me," Kasich said on CNN's "State of the Union." "In my state we have balanced budgets, surplus, we're up half a million jobs and then people say, 'Well Kasich's not a conservative.' What does that mean?" "Come home to where we basically live," the 2016 presidential candidate added. "We should care about people from top to bottom, not...

    John Kasich has lost considerable power since his failed 2016 presidential run. In addition to having his dream of occupying 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. elude him, he also lost his control of the Ohio Republican Party. Now, it appears that Kasich is trying to regain his vice-like grip on the Ohio Republican Party. This power move by Team Kasich is pitting them squarely against grassroots activists and President Trump’s allies in the battleground state. Kasich’s loss of control over the state party is an important part of the puzzle that is his story. Controlling the party allowed him to exert pressure...

    Influential Ohio Democrats are pushing former Cincinnati mayor and daytime-TV host Jerry Springer to run for Ohio governor in 2018, more than half a dozen Democrats familiar with the race told Business Insider. Many said Springer, who sought the Democratic nomination for governor of Ohio in 1982 and remains active in state politics, could be a good fit for the current political climate.

    COLUMBUS, OH — President Donald Trump announced that the United States would pull out of the Paris Climate Accord on Thursday. The move has been met with mixed political reactions and has drawn the ire of frequent Trump opponent, Ohio Governor John Kasich. The voluntary Paris Climate Accord was structured to reduce global carbon emissions, but Trump felt the deal unevenly impacted the American people. He said on Thursday that he was "elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not the citizens of Paris." Kasich took to Facebook to decry the move, saying America's withdrawal from the agreement was tantamount...

    Ohio Gov. John Kasich claimed in his new book that the reason President Trump won the election was because America is in a moral decline. In Two Paths: America Divided or United, Kasich blamed Trump’s electoral win on groups ranging from the media to dishonest politicians, but he also said one of the main reasons Trump won was because of the spiritual decline in America. “I happen to believe that you can’t guide an entire society without a shared religious foundation,” Kasich wrote. “I saw Trump’s reckless entreaties as a weakening of our shared American values — even more so,...

    n this weekend’s broadcast of on “Fox News Sunday,” Gov. John Kasich (R-OH) said the “bulk” of the Republican party was pro-immigration and not moving towards nationalism. Kasich said, “I think the bulk of the Republican Party — and I’ve been in the party since I was a college student — it’s one that believes in the fact that America has a place in the world, Reagan talked about it, it advances humanity. I agree. I think the bulk of the Republican Party does believe that immigration provides energy to our country.”

    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...

    The governor of Ohio, John Kasich is rumored to be making plans for his thirds (and hopefully final) Presidential bid in 2020. Whilst he has publically stated when questioned that “That’s not where my head’s at right now,” this is hardly an outright rejection, and the fact that he has retained his presidential campaign staff tells us all we need to know. Reports suggest that his campaign staff is running numbers on whether he has a better chance as an independent or on the Republican ticket. Despite the fact that he only won his home state Ohio in the primaries,...

    Ohio governor John Kasich is riding shotgun in a large black SUV that’s rolling through midtown Manhattan when he pulls out his smartphone and assumes the role of disc jockey. First up is Lou Reed’s “Perfect Day,” a piano-based melody. “I think about my wife when I hear this,” Kasich says. “Isn’t that a beautiful song?” He then switches to something more upbeat. “Remember this one, Doug?” Kasich asks his political aide Doug Preisse, who traveled everywhere with Kasich during his 2016 presidential campaign. Doug is stumped. “Bowie!” Kasich exclaims before switching songs again halfway through David Bowie’s “Starman.”

    Ohio Gov. John Kasich hinted again Sunday at a possible 2020 presidential run by ripping the Republican Party and declaring “I can bring that party back.” The Republican governor accused the GOP of being “anti-immigrant, anti-trade, in favor of debt,” and implored party members to “come home.” “We should care about people from top to bottom, not just at those at the top but everybody,” Mr. Kasich told CNN’s “State of the Union.” “I can bring that party back, that’s what I’m going to do, in one way or another.”
