John Kasich Election 16 Page MAIN_137152
John Kasich is running for President to bring Americans together, restore our nation’s strength and make the world a safer, more secure place – and he’s got the experience to lead us and do it.
In Ohio, the ultimate swing state, he was reelected last year by a 30 point margin after working with his fellow Ohioans to turn an $8 billion shortfall into a $2 billion surplus, cut taxes $5 billion and make Ohio one of the top job-creating states in the nation.
As chair of the Budget Committee in Congress he led the effort to balance the federal budget for the first time in a generation and served 18 years on the House Armed Services Committee where he was a strong ally
of President Reagan and his national security agenda.
He has also had a successful career as an investment banker, New York Times best-selling author and at FOX News.
The governor is originally from McKees Rocks, Pennsylvania, a blue-collar town outside Pittsburgh where his father delivered mail for 30 years. He and his wife Karen have twin teenage daughters.
