Former Gov. John Kasich (R) told BuzzFeed News that it was Democrats who approached him to speak at their convention.
Said Kasich: “This was not something that I instigated. And when they came and asked, ‘Do you want to do it?’ I had to think about it, right? I had to think about it. And it’s not like I’m gonna be turning around. I’m a Republican. But I just think that at this point in time, my Republican affiliation is outweighed by my concern about the direction of the country.”Save to Favorites
