Kasich Says Open Convention Is Going To Be Fun


“Kids will learn how we elect presidents,” says Kasich. 

John Kasich said he thinks he has a good chance at a contested convention this summer.   “I believe that a convention will look at somebody like me, and that’s why I think I’m going to be the nominee,” the Ohio governor said on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday.

It will be so cool.” [/pullquote]

Kasich said he thinks convention delegates will start to “feel the real weight” in choosing who the Republican nominee will be.  “They begin to realize that they are going to be held accountable, and they are going to be responsible for making sure we pick somebody who can be commander in chief, leader of the free world, and can beat Hillary Clinton in the fall,” Kasich said.   “And I’m the only one that consistently does it.”

Kasich said he expects to continue gaining momentum and picking up delegates until the convention.  He also talked about his record on job growth, adding he has international foreign policy knowledge and the experience to be a competitive candidate.
