Ohio Senate President Says Governor Kasich Can Win Presidency

Feb 23, 2016

Ohio Senate President Keith Faber says he doesn’t believe Gov. John Kasich cannot win the presidency, even as a new Quinnipiac Poll shows Kasich would lose to reality TV star and real estate mogul Donald Trump in Ohio if the election was held today.

“I support the Governor. I think he would make a great president. I like Marco Rubio as well. In the end, I think Governor Kasich has a very viable path to being president. Don’t forget that you have to go through the Midwest. And I think Governor Kasich is doing very well in Michigan. He will certainly do very well in Ohio. He will certainly do very well in the Midwestern states. So I think his campaign strategy is solid,” Faber said.

Some Republican leaders and pundits are now calling on Kasich to bow out of the race right now in an effort to help Florida Sen. Marco Rubio in his bid for the presidency.
