Santorum: Kasich Broke His Promise To Support The GOP Nominee

Rick Santorum, reacting to John Kasich’s decision to write in John McCain instead of voting for Donald Trump, said Tuesday that the Ohio governor is “better than that.”

Newsmax reported that the former Republican senator from Pennsylvania told CNN host Brooke Baldwin that Kasich violated his promise to support the GOP presidential nominee. The governor made the vow during a candidates’ debate last year, and later signed a written pledge. However, he declined to attend the Republican National Convention in his home state, where Trump received the party’s nomination.

Last month, following the release of an 11-year-old tape of Trump bragging about inappropriately kissing and fondling women, Kasich announced he would not vote for the candidate. This week, the governor revealed that his absentee ballot featured a write-in vote for McCain, the Arizona senator who lost the 2008 election to Barack Obama.

“If you’re watching, John, you signed a pledge,” Santorum said in the CNN interview. “You signed a pledge saying that you would support the Republican nominee for president. You signed a pledge in order to get on the ballot in South Carolina. You promised that you would follow through with that. You knew Donald Trump had a chance because he was leading in the polls at the time to be our nominee and you signed it anyway.”

The former senator added: “Jeb Bush, I would say the same thing to you. You signed a pledge. I would say the same thing to other candidates who have not stepped forward and said I’m gonna support Donald Trump, because you wouldn’t have been on the ballot. You wouldn’t have been able to run for president had you not signed that pledge.”
