KASICH: Wishy-Washy on Garland Nomination, Doesn’t Seem to Give a Straight Answer

Governor_of_Ohio_John_KasichIf, for some strange reason, you were considering voting for Kasich, take a look at this first. It may change your mind.

Kasich said while he doesn’t think Obama should have named a replacement, he stated members of the Senate should show Garland “respect” by granting him a meeting, and that he could possibly consider putting him under consideration as his own nominee.

The governor stepped back from his comments while speaking to reporters in Utah later Saturday, calling his earlier remarks an attempt at being “polite.”

“In an effort to be polite today, I’ve created little bit of a situation,” Kasich said after a campaign event in St. George. “Look, you know, Garland is — I’m gonna have my own picks for the Supreme Court.”
