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.
3/3 …but no ulterior motive. Not a unity ticket, just working with a new friend on hard compromises.
