Ohio Gov. John Kasich said the “options are still on the table” for a presidential bid while suggesting his accomplishments in the state office could translate to success for the rest of the country.
“Ohio is a microcosm of America,” the Republican governor told host Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday," later adding that he still has “plenty of time” to decide whether he will run.
Kasich touted the fact that his state has added nearly 300,000 jobs under his leadership and has adopted a “structurally balanced” budget system.
He also highlighted his effort to expand government services to “those who live in the shadows,” such as the “drug-addicted” or homeless, in a move that could put him at odds with members of his own party who want to roll back such assistance across the board.
