Kasich hints at leaving the GOP

Ohio Gov. John Kasich is no fan of President Trump. He’s one political figure and former 2016 presidential candidate who never came around to giving the president a chance.

Now, Kasich has hinted that he might be through with the Republican Party. In an interview Sunday on State of the Union with CNN’s Jake Tapper, on the topic of Alabama and Roy Moore, Kasich said::

“I don’t run the party, I can tell you for me — I don’t support that. I couldn’t vote for that. I couldn’t tell you what the heck I’d have to do, but I don’t live in that state. Those claims — I mean — they’re ludicrous. They’re divisive. And if that’s where we’re headed… If the Party can’t be fixed, Jake, then I’m not going to be able to support the Party. Period.”

Tapper asked if that meant Kasich would become an independent. Kasich answered “No…we need to fix it.”

But then he added “…people are beginning to say, ‘I don’t like either of them.’ And that says something big, so hopefully our party leaders will pay attention to this.”
