John Kasich

WVXU politics reporter Howard Wilkinson talked with Maryanne Zeleznik Monday morning about the sinking poll numbers in Ohio Gov. John Kasich's Republican presidential bid; and what's in store Tuesday night at the first Democratic presidential debate. 

  Last Monday, at the beginning of what turned out to be a not-so-hot week for Ohio’s governor, John Kasich, he said something at the opening of his New Hampshire presidential campaign headquarters that was very revealing; and very frank.

“We’ve got about 128 days to go until the New Hampshire primary,’’ the Boston Globe reported Kasich as saying. “We do well here; we’re moving on. We do terrible here; it’s over. No confusion about that. This is very, very important to us.”

Ohio Gov. John Kasich was in a jovial mood when he met with reporters Thursday at the Statehouse, as he took a break from the presidential campaign trail to conduct some Ohio business.

WVXU politics reporter Howard Wilkinson talked with news director Maryanne Zeleznik Monday morning about where things stand with Ohio Gov. John Kasich's bid for the GOP presidential nomination and the Kentucky GOP creating a presidential caucus so GOP presidential contender Rand Paul can be on the primary ballot as a candidate for re-election to the Senate next year. 

It’s hard to say at this early date how Ohio Gov. John Kasich’s quest for the Republican presidential nomination will turn out, but, given the governor’s personal style and political skills, everyone assumed it would be a wild ride.

And it has been just that.

WVXU politics reporter Howard Wilkinson talked with Ann Thompson Monday morning about the seeming rise of John Kasich's presidential ambitions; and the fact that Kentucky's Rand Paul appears to have a campaign stalled in neutral.

  We don’t know about your family, but, at our house, when Thanksgiving came around, there were two tables set up for the family feast.

One for the grown-ups – the big fancy table. Another off to the side – usually a card table with a tablecloth thrown over it – for the kiddies.

It was OK, except the mashed potatoes tended to get cold by the time they made it to the card table.
