John Kasich is a Republican candidate for the office of President of the United States in 2016. John Kasich is the governor of Ohio. He previously served in the Ohio State Senate from 1979 to 1983 and in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1983 to 2001, representing Ohio's 12th Congressional District. Kasich also ran unsuccessfully for president of the United States in 2000. Kasich officially announced his bid for the presidency on July 21, 2015, making him the 16th major Republican candidate to enter the race. He made his announcement at Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio, where he earned a B.A. in political science in 1974. Previously, in March 2014, Kasich said that he was "just not interested" in running for the presidency, but in an interview with ABC News on December 7, 2014, he would not explicitly deny plans to run. When asked about the possibility, Kasich responded, "Well, George, well, look, you know, you knew you were never going to get a good answer out of me here today." Kasich has earned both support and criticism from fellow Republicans for his more moderate political philosophy. He supported Common Core education standards, a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants and expansions for Medicaid in Ohio. Kasich's support in his home state could offer him a significant advantage, if he chooses to run, as no candidate who has lost Ohio has been able to win the presidency in over 50 years.
