I am very excited to go see a Republican Presidential Candidate, and I am very excited that it is John Kasich. I would love to see Donald Trump, and I hope that he does come to Hofstra, but for now, I will gladly go to see John Kasich tomorrow.
He has one of the best records in the election, on certain things like balancing the federal budget, and he also is very strong on certain policies, like foreign policy, and more state and local government power.
He is a strong guy and a strong leader. He is a well liked, well respected Governor of Ohio, who won in two landslide elections in 2010, and again in 2014. He has balanced the budget four times, and he has worked in politics since he was 18 years old and met with President Richard M. Nixon.
I really admire the qualities that Governor Kasich has. I admire the fact that he has no quit in him, and that he is not about to give up and throw in the towel, even when the times don't look so good. The only hope he has, is that there is a contested convention.
Now the problem for him is, Trump is more than likely, make it to 1,237 delegates, or if he doesn't then he will be in first for the nomination for the convention. Senator Ted Cruz is probably not going to hit 1,237, and would need the convention. Governor Kasich is in fourth place right now in delegates with 146, behind Senator Marco Rubio's 170. He would need it to go to a convention, and a second ballot for him to have a shot at this nomination.
The problem is with that is that he has not won as many states as Trump or Cruz. Rubio won Minnesota, Puerto Rico, Washington D.C., Kasich won his home state of Ohio, but Cruz has won nine states, and Trump has won 21 states. Kasich is not a proven winner in other states, although he came close in Massachusetts, and came very close in Vermont.
Anyways, I am very excited, like I said, about getting to see, and hopefully meet him too! That would definitely be very cool to happen! If I take any photos at the event, I will put them down below!
Would you be as excited to see him as I am, even though you maybe would not vote for him? Who is your favorite Presidential candidate? Do you like Governor John Kasich?
