Outgoing Ohio Gov. John Kasich on Sunday acknowledged he’s “very seriously” considering a White House bid in 2020 against President Donald Trump.
The Republican leader, a two-time presidential candidate, told ABC’s “This Week” that he’s been discussing the possibility of challenging Trump for the GOP nomination “virtually every day” with friends and family.
“Look, we need different leadership ― there isn’t any question about it,” Kasich said. “I’m worried about our country ― and not just in the short-term, but I’m worried about country in the long-term.”
Kasich was one of Trump’s main rivals in the 2016 Republican primaries and since then has emerged as one of the president’s most vocal critics within the GOP.
