Senate President Says Kasich - Who He Supported In The Primary - Needs To "Come On Board" With Trump

Sep 29, 2016

A top Republican leader who’s supporting Donald Trump says he hopes Gov. John Kasich changes his mind about the GOP nominee.

Senate President Keith Faber (R-Celina) campaigned for John Kasich before he was the last candidate to drop out in May.  Faber said Trump wasn’t his candidate, but he is his nominee – and that he hopes Kasich will see it the same way soon, as Kasich’s former presidential opponent Sen. Ted Cruz has. “John Kasich was my candidate. He’s my friend, and I think he’s been a darn good governor for Ohio. I wish he would come on board with the Trump campaign,” Faber said.

Kasich has repeatedly declined to endorse Trump, even as RNC head Reince Preibus called on him to do so or perhaps face difficulty running for president in the future.
