Kasich victory manages to slow the Trump Train
Ohio Gov. John Kasich managed to deny Donald Trump a clean sweep Tuesday with a decisive victory in Ohio, besting Trump by around 10 points judging by current returns. Conventional wisdom was that victories in Florida and Ohio would sew up the nomination for Trump, and Trump had no problem taking Florida from Marco Rubio, leading him to suspend his campaign. But a Kasich victory in Ohio keeps the governor alive and with his eyes on the surrounding states.
Pundits say that this winner-take-all victory by Kasich, which comes with 66 delegates, could have major ramifications on the direction of the race. Not President Kasich ramifications, but a stumbling block for Donald Trump.
What’s the next step for Kasich? He’s glad you asked.
