    Former Ohio governor John Kasich (R) thwarted Alaska Airlines’ efforts to reassign him to another seat by seizing the first class seat purchased by comedian Julie Klausner. Kasich was liable for seat reassignment because he had paid the lowest price. Kasich defended his actions by asserting his entitlement “as a more important passenger. I think a former state governor, presidential candidate and newly hired CNN commentator has priority over a mere comedian. I made laws. I challenged Trump. I will be guiding CNN viewers toward the correct opinions and attitudes about public policy for the next few years. All Klausner...

    Former Ohio governor John Kasich has been shamed for stealing another passenger's first class seat on an Alaska Airlines flight after being bumped out of his own to make room for a pilot. He got on the plane first and, according to Klausner, was told that he could not sit in his seat because it had been given to a pilot who had been scheduled to fly at the other end of the journey at the last minute. He was bumped out instead of anyone else because, according to Klausner, he paid the least for his ticket. But instead of...

    Former Ohio Governor John Kasich (R) has been signed by CNN to be an on air commentator across a variety of the network’s programs. The ex-governor expressed his hope that he “might leverage a tour as a television star into a successful campaign for the presidency like Trump did, only with more compassion for the lonely and depressed majority of Americans. I think voters will respond favorably to my belief that ‘everyone needs to be hugged.’ It will be a welcome change from Trump’s ‘everyone needs to be slugged.’” Kasich said he was “especially proud to be named a seńor...

    Outgoing Ohio Gov. John Kasich is signing with a top Hollywood talent agency. United Talent Agency (UTA) announced it had signed Kasich as one of its clients on Monday — the same day that the Republican governor, who’s considering a 2020 White House bid, was poised to leave office. Ohio Gov.-elect Mike DeWine (R) will replace him. UTA said in a statement that it “will help [Kasich] navigate the next phase of his public and private life.” “I’m excited to work with UTA to keep my voice active across the world and share my experiences and observations to help improve...

    The Ohio legislature has passed an override of Governor Kasich' veto of HB 228. There are several major reforms in Ohio's HB 228. One provision is to strengthen Ohio's preemption statute. Ohio, as with most states, has a law that reserves statutory authority about firearms to the legislature. Local governments and regulatory bodies are not allowed to make a crazy quilt of ordinances and regulations to prevent the exercise of Second Amendment rights in the State.Local governments refused to repeal ordinances that infringed on second amendment rights, producing a chilling effect on the exercise of those rights. A provision...

    Ohio lawmakers voted Thursday to override Governor Kasich's veto on a self-defense gun bill Now, major changes will be coming to the way prosecutors handle self-defense cases and to gun laws across the state. House Bill 228 was once a "stand your ground" bill but turned into a self-defense bill after it received some opposition at the statehouse. Over the summer, anti-gun violence group Moms Demand Action went to the statehouse to try and stop the bill from passing.

    Ohio's "heartbeat bill," which would have prohibited killing unborn children with a detectable heartbeat, went down in flames on Thursday after the Senate failed by one vote to override Gov. Kasich's heartless veto of the bill. The bill passed both chambers earlier this month — the House by a comfortable majority and the Senate 18-13 — but Kasich followed through on his promise to veto the bill. In Ohio, a three-fifths majority is required to override a veto, which meant that two additional votes were needed in the Senate. The Ohio House voted earlier today to override Kasich's veto 61-28,...

    A bill broadening gun-owner rights has become law in Ohio, after the Republican-led state Legislature overrode GOP Gov. John Kasich’s veto. The Senate voted 21-11 on Thursday to reject Kasich’s decision to strike down the bill. That followed a House override earlier in the day. The legislation expands gun access for off-duty police officers and allows pre-emption of local gun restrictions, among other things. Senators had hoped to address Kasich’s objections by stripping its so-called stand-your-ground language, but he vetoed the legislation anyway. Kasich opposed language shifting the burden of proof in self-defense cases from defendants to prosecutors. He also...

    Today, outgoing Ohio Gov. John Kasich vetoed for the second time a bill that would have prevented babies with beating hearts from being aborted. Kasich, a former Republican presidential candidate, touted his allegedly “pro-life” views as he explained his veto. “As governor, I have worked hard to strengthen Ohio’s protections for the sanctity of human life, and I have a deep respect for my fellow members of the pro-life community and their ongoing efforts in defense of unborn life,” said Kasich. “However, the central provision of Sub. H.B. 258, that an abortion cannot be performed if a heartbeat has been detected in...

    Before vetoing House Bill 228, Gov. John Kasich expressed frustration Wednesday about how politics have blocked him from passing a "Red Flag Law," allowing the courts to take away a person's gun if he or she is unstable, and the growing connection with public shootings. "It never existed in America and we can't do anything because of rotten, stinkin' politics," Kasich said. Then, he commented about House Bill 228. "So, why would I sign a bill that gives more power to the gun advocates," he said. "I hate to jump on the bash-Kasich bandwagon, but in this case, he's really...

    It was only a few weeks ago when outgoing Ohio Governor John Kasich said he was seriously considering a 2020 primary challenge to President Trump, if only to “send a message.” (Who that message was intended for remains unclear.) But hey… the guy is going to be unemployed come January so he needs something to keep himself busy.But now, with Christmas fast approaching, something seems to have changed. During an interview with the Associated Press, Kasich was striking a decidedly different tone. Clearly, if you’re going to mount a primary challenge, you need to believe that you at least have...

    The Dayton Daily News ^ | Dec 11, 2018 | Randy Ludlow
    Departing Ohio Gov. John Kasich seemingly wants it both ways. The President Donald Trump-bashing Republican, long in demand on TV political talk shows, thinks it “likely” he will end up in the news media, hopefully in some “unique” role on television. But at the same time, the last candidate standing in the way of Trump in the 2016 Republican primaries is keeping the runway clear for another potential run for the presidency. GOP candidates nervy enough to oppose Trump, or pursuing an obstacle-strewn run as an independent, need to get serious soon about their 2020 candidacies. However, in an 85-minute...

    Outgoing Ohio Gov. John Kasich said Thursday that he’d prefer to run for president as a Republican, but only if he’s entering a primary he could win. In an interview with The Associated Press, Kasich acknowledged he probably couldn’t defeat President Donald Trump if the election were held today. He says he’s seriously considering his options and letting his advisers monitor the daily troubles Trump is facing, including talk of impeachment. “If you’re going to run as a Republican you have to have a sense that if you get into primaries you can win. Right now, probably couldn’t win,” he...

    Ohio Republican Gov. John Kasich's chief political strategist has a message for President Donald Trump: "Be careful what you wish for." Earlier, a Fox News interviewer asked the president about the possibility of Kasich or retiring Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., running against him in 2020, and Trump responded, "I hope so." John Weaver, the Kasich strategist, responded to the remark with a warning. "Be careful what you wish for," Weaver said in a message to CNBC.

There isn’t any question about it," he said on ABC's "This Week." Kasich said that "all options are on the table" for his potential bid, including running on a bipartisan ticket. The Ohio governor, who ran unsuccessfully for the Republican nomination in 2016, raised the possibility that President...
