Kasich Won't Rule Out Presidential Bid

Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R), "who is running for re-election, defended policies that break with others pushed by some of his GOP colleagues, such as expanding Medicaid and investing in infrastructure spending, saying they are the right decisions for Ohio," the Wall Street Journal reports.

"He also fed 2016 speculation by declining to rule out a presidential run."

Said Kasich: "I'm flattered about the fact that people talk about my running for president. You know, I tried to run for president in the 2000 election, and nobody would pay any attention. Now ... all I'm focused on is Ohio, and everybody wants to talk about something else."
