Ohio Gov. John Kasich Joins Presidential Race
Two-term Ohio Gov. John Kasich has announced his bid for the White House. He's now the 16th GOP candidate to enter the race.
“I have decided to run for president of the United States,” Ohio Gov. John Kasich said.
And then there were 16. Ohio’s John Kasich has officially jumped in the race.

And in case you weren't convinced just how crucial Ohio is, no Republican has ever won the White House without carrying Ohio.

Today, the former congressman fashions himself as a Washington outsider.
"All I hear is fighting. You know what? People don’t want fighting all the time. They want people to agree and move our country forward," Kasich said on Fox News.
Kasich is often described as a moderate.
The question now is: Will that keep him off the Fox News debate stage in August? (Video via Kasich Taylor for Ohio)
Only the top 10 polling candidates will get invites. Right now, it doesn't look like he'll be one of them.
