KASICH: Stifles Rumors, ‘Nobody’s Asked Me To Drop Out’

Screen Shot 2016-02-28 at 8.51.17 AMRumor or not, do you think Kasich should drop out already?

Ohio Gov. John Kasich rejected a report by The New York Times that former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney asked him to drop out of the race for the sake of party unification.

“Nobody’s asked me to drop out. And that wouldn’t matter to me anyway,” he said on “Meet the Press” on Sunday morning. “I don’t really want to get into private conversations with people. But that never happened in terms of Mitt trying to tell me, you know, what I need to do with my career. That’s not what it was about.”

Still, a growing chorus of establishment Republicans is urging candidates to consolidate the anti-Trump vote, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. He reportedly said Kasich’s path to the nomination was “irrational.”
