John Kasich Hints That He May Need To Leave The GOP
October 1, 2017 ― Ohio governor John Kasich, a top Republican leader and former candidate for the partyís presidential nomination, on Sunday said the GOP may be on a trajectory to lose supporters like him. ďIf the party canít be fixed, Jake, then Iím not going to be able to support the party, period,Ē he told Jake Tapper on CNNís ďState of the Union,Ē a few minutes after he noted that Americans seem more eager to hear from independent candidates than ever before.
Quote:
The governorís comment came in response to a question about how Republicans should react to Alabama politician Roy Moore securing their partyís nomination for that stateís open Senate seat. Moore is a former judge who was twice removed from Alabamaís Supreme Court for violating legal standards, and Tapper noted that he has said homosexual conduct should be illegal, questioned the birthplace of former President Barack Obama and suggested Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) should not be allowed a position in Congress because he is a practicing Muslim.

ďWell, look, I donít run the party. I can tell you for me, I donít support that. I couldnít vote for that. I donít know what the heck I would have to do, but I donít live in that state. I mean, those claims are ― I mean, theyíre ludicrous and theyíre divisive,Ē Kasich said, adding that the party needs to be ďfixedĒ to limit the influence of far-right elements and he sees his job as trying to get that done. The governor said he hopes figures like Moore do not represent the GOPís future.


Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a top Republican leader and former candidate for the partyís presidential nomination, on Sunday said the GOP may be on a trajectory to lose supporters like him.

Tapper explicitly asked if Kasich might split from the GOP if it continues being associated with figures like Moore. ďNo, not at this...Ē the governor responded, trailing off as if to hint that a time may come when he would consider parting ways with GOP. ďWhat Iím saying to you is, we need to fix it. If our party, if the Republican Party is going to be anti-immigration, if itís not going to be worried about debt, if itís going to be anti-trade, this is not where our party can be. So Iím going to fight like everything I have... itís why Iím on these shows, because I want this part y to be straightened out. But I not only want the party to be straightened out, I want the country to be straightened out. And so itís really a battle again inside of both parties, but people are beginning to say, I donít like either of them. And that says something big. So hopefully our party leaders will pay attention to this.Ē

Despite his criticisms of President Donald Trump, Kasich retains influence in the party because of his popularity in Ohio and is seen as a standard-bearer for GOP centrists distressed by Trumpís rise. Heís also cultivated an image as a uniter, in contrast to Trumpís divisiveness, reaching out to Democrats on issues like health care reform. The governor recently ruled out rumors of his running in 2020 on a joint ticket with Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper of Colorado. He has left the door open to running for the presidency next time around.
