Gov. Kasich spending time in New Hampshire this week

By  | 

TOLEDO - (WTVG) - Ohio governor John Kasich, who ran for president in 2016 and lost to Donald Trump appears to be preparing for a third run.

Two years ago, Kasich only won his home state of Ohio but he was the last Republican standing against Trump out of a field of 17 contenders for the party's nomination.

"It shows he's a fighter," say 13abc political analyst and BGSU professor Melissa Miller. "What we don't now is if he can go head-to-head with the President."

Miller says Kasich could seriously wound the president's re-election effort.

But newly re-elected Ohio Democratic US senator Sherrod Brown is also considering a run, making Ohio a state that would have a dramatic impact on who gets elected in 2020.
