Ohio Gov. John Kasich Begins Presidential Campaign


061115_2300_GovJohnKasi1.pngOhio Gov. John Kasich officially began his campaign for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination at Ohio State University today, July 21, before a crowd of several thousand people. He becomes the sixteenth Republican candidate seeking the nomination.
He spoke of his background in Congress and as two-term governor of Ohio. Although he claimed good fiscal management in Ohio, Ohio government spending is up $4.6 billion in 4 years. He spoke in favor of a Federal balanced budget amendment, but his forcing of Obamacare Medicaid expansion on Ohio will cost US taxpayers billions of dollars. Many conservatives are also very upset by Gov. Kasich’s support of Common Core, which hurts students, parents, and local control of education. (Click here for many other reasons why we feel that Gov. Kasich should NOT be considered a conservative.)
