Posted on 03/11/2016 1:30:07 PM PST by COUNTrecount
John Kasich's campaign on Friday flatly rejected Marco Rubio's suggestion that they swap voters in each others home states in order to ensure Rubio wins in Florida, and Kasich wins in Ohio.
"We were going to win in OH without his help, just as he's going to lose in Florida without ours," Kasich spokesman Rob Nichols said in a tweet.

Rubio and his campaign called on his supporters in Ohio to vote for Gov. Kasich, in an effort to block Donald Trump from winning the Republican nomination.

Will this horrible election cycle ever end?
Don’t you have to be up to kick someone when they’re down?
1 for Kasich! GOPe 0
It’s amazing what desperation does to rationality.
Kasich shows some guts. I like it.
So we really did see the “real Marco” when he was publically relating Trump’s hands to his manhood! The last debate we saw “deviousl little Marco” at work. Well at least he’s going to loose Florida by big numbers.
Wow....can this soap opera get crazier? Is Kasich angling to be VP if he has enough votes to bring Trump over the top?
He shows “guts” with a Republican. Would he do the same with a dem? Doubt it.
Does Rubio really think the American people would support this type of rotten insider politics?
Rubio reeks like a week old homicide scene.
The GOP candidates are making Hillary and Bernie look good.
Kasick is going to be Trump’s VP pick, if Trump gets the nomination.
This ticket will be a Populist-Establishment ticket to not just screw over conservatism and to kill it.
Good for Kasich, I could support him if his policies weren’t so liberal.
I’ll say this about Kasich, he doesn’t want or need a loser’s help.
Good for him!
I hope not. Best thing to happen to politics in years. Train wrecks everyday.
I agree with you. But you have to admit that Kasich bucking the Romney plan is a big surprise.
While Kasich is dead last in my estimation on the GOP side, I have to agree with him that Rubio’s sleazy idea of ‘swapping’ votes is just the wrong thing to do. If you can’t win on your own merits, you shouldn’t try to get votes from someone else to game the system. These GOPe guys need to knock it off and get used to the idea of Donald Trump being the nominee.
OMG I hope not.
I’m one of those OH folks who isn’t enamored with Kasich. That being said, he does have skills, background and experiences that would be helpful for Trump’s election argument.
