THE FUNNY THING IS....

Ex-GOP Rep. Kasich considers run for governor (THE ASSOCIATED PRESS, 2/21/07)

Former U.S. Rep. John Kasich is contemplating a run for Ohio governor 2010, prompting him to begin speaking regularly at Republican functions around the state.

"I've made it clear to people that I'm going to look at the governor's office," Kasich said during a recent Lincoln Day dinner in Clermont County. "I hope that (Gov.) Ted Strickland will do a good job so I won't have to go around the state doing this stuff."

Kasich, a 2000 presidential contender who now hosts a talk show on Fox News, is scheduled as the keynote speaker next month at four more of the dinners at which the GOP marks its founding and raises money. Kasich, who left public service five years ago after 18 years in Congress, said he is using the events to reconnect with GOP voters.


...as Governor of OH he'd be a serious presidential contender.

I know little about him except what I've seen on Fox. I have to say he certainly sounds capable of being a strong candidate.

Restoring credibility to the Ohio Republican Party would be Kasich's Priority One.

He's capable of doing that.
