John Kasich Stuns GOP With Unexpected 2020 Election Promise

There’s no telling who might step up to challenge President Donald Trump in the run up to the 2020 election. He’ll have his fair share of competitors but to call them competition would probably be inaccurate.

Failed candidate John Kasich, who has mostly hid in the shadows since the election, just emerged with a threat that will certainly catch many off guard…

Fox News reports:

John Kasich says he doesn’t know whether he’ll run for the White House again in 2020.

But the two-term Ohio governor and 2016 Republican presidential candidate said he realized his Tuesday trip to New Hampshire – which holds the first presidential primary – would spark more speculation that he’s considering a primary challenge against President Donald Trump.

And appears Kasich’s fine with that.

“It’s great to come back because it gets everybody atwitter, literally. I honestly don’t know what I’m doing. But all my options are on the table. But I don’t know,” he said in an interview with Fox News in Manchester, N.H.

Kasich said any decision on mounting another White House bid would come at least nine months from now, after he finishes his second term as Ohio governor.

“What I know is that I want these next nine months to be a wonderful time in Ohio,” Kasich said.

While he repeatedly said he had “no clue” whether he’d run for president again, he added that “I would like to keep my voice out there.”

Kasich returned New Hampshire for the first time in a year to deliver a speech at New England College, as part of the school’s President’s Speaker Series.

Earlier he met with Granite State advisers and supporters from his 2016 presidential campaign. He also did a round of media interviews and in the morning met quietly with New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu. Kasich endorsed Sununu during the state’s 2016 GOP gubernatorial primary.

Once a longshot for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, Kasich concentrated his efforts on New Hampshire and came in second to Donald Trump in the Feb. 2016 GOP primary. He kept his campaign alive deep into the primary calendar and unlike Trump’s other rivals for the nomination, Kasich never endorsed Trump for president. And he’s remained a critic of the President.

    This just shows that this man has a super ego!!! He got nowhere in 2016 and he will get nowhere in 2020. Let him go ahead and run – he won’t beat President Trump!!!

    This just shows that this man has a super ego!!! He got nowhere in 2016 and he will get nowhere in 2020. Let him go ahead and run – he won’t beat President Trump!!! He doesn’t even support a Republican agenda. That’s why he didn’t get to first base in 2016. So tired of Democrats running as Republicans just to get elected and then they spring their liberal agenda on the Country.

    There was a time that I really liked you & thought that you were working hard to balance America’s budget. And I thought you were being a good governor for Ohio. Then during the debates & you turned into a smart ass, that did it for me. I would never vote for you or shake your hand. You & low energy jeb make a good pair of nothings.

    I am so not excited about this. Assuming President Trump runs, you don’t have a snowball’s chance of being the nominee.

    I voted for and supported Kasich in the last Presidential Primary in Illinois. After the way he acted when he lost the nomination to President Trump, I will never support or vote for him!

    I just don’t see anyone else being stupid enough to challenge the sitting President of The United States in a primary for that sitting President’s job.
    McCain is stupid enough, but he has other issues to deal with.
