The Ohio Governor speaks on “Fox News Sunday” on his timeline for a decision to challenge President trump.
MANCHESTER, NH – Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich plans said probably a visit to the first-in-the-nation presidential primary state of New Hampshire in the next month or in early October, a top Kasich adviser to Fox News.
A journey through the very vocal critics of President Trump – first reported by The Washington Post sparks further speculation that Kasich seriously with a long-shot GOP primary challenge against the President.
KASICH SAYS: “ALL OPTIONS ARE ON THE TABLE” FOR THE LONG-SHOT GOP PRIMARY CHALLENGE AGAINST TRUMP
“The Governor has never closed the door to challenging Trump,” senior adviser John Weaver told Fox News.
Trump simply won the 2016 GOP presidential primary in New Hampshire to launch him in the direction of winning the Republican nomination and eventually the White house. Kasich came in second behind the trump, but before the rest of the large field of GOP contenders. He finally lost his White house bid late in the primary calendar, but never trump endorsed in the elections and until today remains critical of the President.
“Our organization in New Hampshire has a very solid, because the 2016 primary,” Weber emphasized.
And he added that “in fact, it has grown” due to the way Trump has handled in as President.
“It is the prudent thing to do to visit, the state not only to speak to one of our team members, but also to New Hampshire citizens about the process and your role in it,” Weaver added.
And he stressed that Kasich is a fiscal conservative, longtime Congressman before serving two terms as Ohio’s Governor – has an increase in overtures from supporters urging him to run in 2020, because of their concern about the President’s handling of the economy. He added that more executives have achieved, “concerned about Trump’s erratic behavior in terms of trade policy.”
Kasich visited the crucial first primary state, a couple of times since the end of his presidential campaign, the last time in November, after the midterm elections.
THE LATEST FROM FOX NEWS ON THE 2020 PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN
“I don’t really know what I’m going to do,” Kasich told Fox News at the time, to stress that “all options are on the table.”
“I need to see what the situation is and whether I can really have an impact. I don’t want to waste everyone’s not waste time if it’s Kasich declared a clear path to a big impact,”.
The obvious early vote was against Trump in New Hampshire is a purple state with a strong libertarian streak, allows independent voters to vote ballots in either the GOP or the Democratic presidential primaries.
But even if Kasich keeps a small group of solid supporters of the state, a path to winning the nomination still seems far-fetched, at best.
The President enjoys strong support among granite state Republicans. The latest evidence: a poll this month by the University of New Hampshire shows trump with 82 percent approval score among the Republicans.
There is already a Republican challenge trump in the primaries, former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld. He has near-weekly trips to New Hampshire since February, also announced his candidacy in April. But he has failed until today to make a dent in the polls.
SANFORD SAYS HE’LL DECIDE ON, THE PRIMARY CHALLENGE FOR LABOR DAY
Last week, the former South Carolina Governor and Congressman Mark Sanford of New Hampshire visited, as he is considering a primary challenge against Trump. Sanford told Fox News that he must decide by labor Day if he goes to mount what he has conceded would be a “long-shot” – GOP primary bid against the President.
Aides say that Fox News is able to receive the travel and the feedback on Sanford, make him run more.
The goal of the long-time deficit hawk, the explosion of government spending and a ballooning national debt has accelerated, while Trump tenure in the White house – a conversation in the presidential campaign.
“I think we need to said to carry on a conversation as the Republicans about what it means to be a Republican,” Sanford. “One of the cornerstones of the Republican party was historically seen, we spend beyond our means? We believe in some level of financial reason? And that seems to have gone out of the window late.”
But Sanford – as he has since the first recognition he has been a primary challenge, once again, played down his chances of, stresses, “I think you confirm in advance that it is shot in a long time.”
