After Several Big Losses, John Kasich Quits Race For Republican Nomination For President

Governor John Kasich suspended his campaign Wednesday May 4, 2016

Gov. John Kasich will no longer be on the presidential campaign trail.

Kasich suspended his quest for the White House last night. Kasich didn’t bring up Republican front runner Donald Trump as he suspended his campaign. But he did thank his family, friends, volunteers, donors and voters.  “And as I suspend my campaign today, I have renewed faith, deeper faith, that the Lord will show me the way forward and fulfill the purpose of my life,” Kasich said.

Some news reports say Trump is open to talking to Kasich about being his running mate, but Kasich didn’t mention that. But he also didn’t talk about going back to being Ohio's Governor full time.
