Under traditional circumstances, Ohio Governor John Kasich would be the Republican nominee this year. He’s successfully represented middle-class Americans for the past 22 years. He’s led on military reform and chaired two of the most vital committees in the House back when Congress could work with a president and get the job done, including the House Budget Committee which balanced the federal budget. And he’s governor of Ohio, the ultimate swing state, where he was reelected with 64% of the vote. There, he turned the state budget around from a deficit to a big surplus, and the Buckeye state has created hundreds of thousands of jobs under his watch.
