‘Dump Trump’ Movement Pushing John Kasich to Run Again

Some of the Republicans seeking to prevent Donald Trump from becoming their party’s presidential nominee hope Ohio Gov. John Kasich will challenge the billionaire businessman at the GOP national convention.

Cleveland.com reported that former New Hampshire Sen. Gordon Humphrey sent a letter to Kasich supporters, asking them to urge the governor to re-enter the GOP race. “Given our shared effort in the Kasich campaign, I am sure you agree, but John needs encouragement to make the move,” Humphrey wrote. “Please email John and offer him your encouragement and continued backing. ... It’s not going to get better than this, but time is of the essence.”

Fox News pointed out that Bill Kristol, a prominent Republican leader, said Sunday that either Kasich or Mitt Romney should take on Trump at the convention. Romney, the former Massachusetts governor who lost the 2012 election to President Obama, has made it clear that he does not back the real-estate tycoon. However, he continues to insist that he is not a candidate.

Kasich told The Washington Post that he will not endorse Trump or give a speech at the convention. “I’m not shutting my political operation down,” the governor said. “I’m not closing any doors, but my focus right now is going to be on the House, the Senate and the down-ticket here in my state.”
