Former GOP Governor Supporting Biden?

Former Ohio Governor John Kasich will speak on former Vice President Joe Biden’s behalf at the August Democratic National Convention.

A source “with direct knowledge” of the plans to have Kasich speak discussed them with the Associated Press.

The move to bring Kasich into the Democratic National Convention is part of a larger plan by the Biden team and Democrats to reach out to Republicans disaffected with President Trump.

According to The Hill:

Kasich’s expected speech on Biden’s behalf could also give the former vice president a boost in Ohio, a longtime swing state that has increasingly moved in Republicans’ favor in recent years. During his 2016 presidential bid, Ohio was the only state Kasich won. 

Kasich isn’t the only Republican supporting Biden’s campaign to oust Trump in November. A handful of prominent Republicans founded a political action committee (PAC), The Lincoln Project, late last year to oppose the president’s reelection. The group has spent heavily on advertising criticizing Trump in recent months.

Kasich notably ran for the 2016 GOP nomination. He was the last challenger to withdraw from the primary. He won only one nominated contest – his home state of Ohio – during his bid for the White House.

After ending his White House bid, Kasich refused to endorse Trump citing that Trump was a dividing figure. However, he ruled out voting for Hillary Clinton.

This isn’t the first time politicians crossed party lines to appear at a National Convention on behalf of a presidential candidate.

In 2008, Connecticut Democratic Senator Joe Lieberman endorsed John McCain for President and spoke on his behalf at the Republican National Convention. However, McCain and Lieberman had a close relationship from their time in the Senate, and Lieberman was rumored to be a front runner to be McCain’s running mate.

Kasich is a vulture circling over his head. This means he’s dead meat…… A bad omen for poor Joe.

This jerk was never a republican — he was always a kiss-a** obama lackey more demoSCUM than a rino. It is not a surprise he is another POS hypocrite who is still angry over Trump winning the election and accomplishing many positive things for America. kasich is just another anti-American who would rather see the country go to he!! than see President Trump complete his agenda. Should tell you a whole lot about the dirtbag libtard demoSCUM.

If you do not support your parties candidate, I say they should have their party credentials taken away. He never was a conservative and never for anyone but himself. Is there a place we can send our dissatisfaction to him?

Big surprise. Just shows that the Republican electorate was wise to not vote for this jerk. Anyone who supports Biden with his far left agenda was never a Republican.

So now he backs a weak candidate, wonder what SWAMP SWAG he has been promised for his treachery……bye, bye Kasich, not a Republican, not a Demoncrat, guess that makes you a NOTHING, YEA, THAT FITS A NOTHING!

John Kasich was a POS before and he is a POS now. He and Mitt the Snit Romney are a perfect team. Two LOSERS who are too stupid to know it. They surround themselves with a bunch of sycophants who are always telling them how wonderful they are. The result is they live in a delusional world where they start to believe it.

Kasich is such a sore loser. Think of him as a 5 yr old having a tantrum. He needs to put a D after his name. D for dumb, or destroyer, or depressed. Is he sick, the photo makes him look down no interest. He needs to take his mask off & go out, sit in the sun. Get a life!

When we see a political person choosing to support a person who is mentally challenged this is a prime example of how political divided this nation has become. Divided to the point of stupidity. Kasich is just a example of this Political Correctness we hear everyday. the “Political” in Political Correctness should be sending up red flags of warning to every US Citizen. Idiots defending idiots for political gain make no sense, but these politicians are playing with the rights of US Citizens with their HATE FOR TRUMP. It may make a person Political Correct, but this is not how our government was meant to function. We have become a nation “For and by the politicians”. When the politicians claimed President Trump is not their President every US Citizen lost their voice in America. The “Will of the People” means NOTHING.
