Kasich Seems Likely to Run for President

May 27, 2015

Ohio Governor John Kasich is moving rapidly to assemble a team and the financial resources needed to launch a 2016 presidential campaign, the Washington Post reports. He is expected to join the race after June 30.

Kasich will join a crowded Republican field that will gain its 7th candidate today, former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum. That number may grow to 10 in the next week.
