Who Cares About Kasich?

I did, at least, enough to post this filler for you:

"John Kasich sees opportunity thanks to Jeb Bush’s rough start" by Jim O’Sullivan Globe Staff  June 04, 2015

PORTSMOUTH, N.H. – Ohio Governor John Kasich said Thursday that he has been prodded toward a presidential bid by former Florida governor Jeb Bush’s failure to establish a commanding lead in the Republican primary.

“Frankly, I thought that Jeb was going to just suck all the air out of the room. And it just hasn’t happened. No hit on Jeb,” Kasich said, explaining his consideration of a second run at the White House.

The two-term governor and former US House member, who briefly ran for president in 2000, has failed to show much strength in early polling. But his leadership of a swing state, conservative fiscal record dating to his House tenure, and folksy style have made him an appealing candidate to some Republicans.

Recent public polling in New Hampshire has shown four candidates leading the crowded GOP field: Bush, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, US Senator Rand Paul, and US Senator Marco Rubio.

Like several other Republicans in the field, Kasich risks not meeting the national polling standards set by cable networks for the first two debates. But after the event, Kasich told a Boston reporter that he has a special fondness for North End eateries, wondered at the dislike of Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James, and inquired about local sentiment toward the deflated football controversy that has engulfed the New England Patriots....

Must be what got him the one article.


The paper has been swamped with stories regarding Tom's $peech, but fortunately he can spot holes in the defense and lead the team to final victory.
