[Ed. – Said like a true RINO.]
Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) said the GOP is “shrinking” and encouraged voters to choose candidates based on their values, not political parties.
Kasich appeared on CBS News’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday and shared his view on the current state of the Republican Party.
“Unfortunately, our party is shrinking,” Kasich said. “We’re now down to about 25 percent. It’s all becoming like a remnant.”
Kasich pointed to the nail-biter special election between Republican House candidate Troy Balderson and Democrat Danny O’Connor in Ohio last month.
The pair were competing in the state’s 12th Congressional District — a red district that President Trump won by 11 points in 2016.
Balderson was declared the winner more than two weeks after polls closed by a margin of 0.8 percent — or 1,680 votes.
Kasich said Balderson won by “the skin of his teeth” but added that he didn’t think he would need much help on the campaign trail again in November, this time for a full two-year term in the House.
There are some Republicans, however, that Kasich said he will not be campaigning for.
