Ka­sich un­likely to seek of­fice again

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — Sally Per­sons

Ohio Gov. John Ka­sich said Mon­day he will likely never seek pub­lic of­fice again.

“Un­likely that I will ever seek of­fice again, but you never know,” Mr. Ka­sich said on CBS News. Mr. Ka­sich is un­able to run for gov­er­nor again in 2018 due to term lim­its.

But the Ohio Repub­li­can claimed he doesn’t have any re­grets about his time in of­fice, in­clud­ing skip­ping the Repub­li­can Na­tional Con­ven­tion in his own state last year. Mr. Ka­sich did not en­dorse Pres­i­dent Trump and did not vote for him.

“My words mean some­thing to me and when some­body was pulling some­body down, I’m not go­ing to go for them,” Mr. Ka­sich said.

On the is­sues, the gov­er­nor said the par­ties need to come to­gether on top­ics such as Oba­macare to fix the prob­lems and make them work for peo­ple.

“Noth­ing big can be sus­tained if you don’t have both par­ties work­ing with it,” Mr. Ka­sich said.
