Kasich Says He Is Not Planning to Run in 2020 as an Independent

Ohio Gov. John Kasich, R, shot down rumors that he is thinking of running for president in 2020 on an independent ticket with Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper.

“Look, Kasich-Hickenlooper, first of all, you couldn’t pronounce it and second of all, you couldn’t fit it on a bumper sticker,” Kasich said in an interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

“The answer is no,” Kasich added.

The Colorado Governor also sent out a Tweet downplaying the idea.

“Odd & funny that people expect a political marriage when 2 people from different parties work together … Kasich is dapper & worldly, but knows nada about brewing beer. Loving the attention on our bipartisan work … but no ulterior motive. Not a unity ticket, just working with a new friend on hard compromises,” Hickenlooper tweeted.
