After Ohio Win, John Kasich's Team Thinks Marco Rubio Supporters Will Back Ohio Governor
After he beat out Donald Trump in his home state of Ohio in a winner take all primary, Gov. John Kasich’s, R-Ohio, team thinks it has momentum as U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., ended his presidential bid.
In a memo released on Tuesday night, John Weaver, Kasich’s chief strategist, insists the Ohio win proves Kasich’s “positive message and proven record can overcome the Donald Trump insult machine” and “no candidate will win 1237 delegates.” Weaver also expected Rubio’s supporters to rally behind Kasich.
“With a narrowing field, Gov. Kasich is the candidate best positioned to go toe-to-toe in the remaining states,” Weaver wrote. “Our internal data shows that Rubio voters break to Gov. Kasich by a 3:1 margin.
“With the electoral map shifting significantly in our favor, Gov. Kasich is positioned to accumulate a large share of the almost 1,000 remaining delegates and enter Cleveland in strong position to become the nominee," Weaver added. “Thanks to a consistent campaign plan and sound stewardship, Kasich for America’s financial resources are growing stronger. More and more supporters are coming on board as they recognize Gov. Kasich is the only candidate left who can take on Donald Trump, unite the party and win the White House in November.
“Of the 3 remaining viable candidates, only Gov. Kasich will defeat Hillary Clinton in an Electoral College landslide, sweeping in Republicans from the courthouse to the Senate,” Weaver closed. “The other candidates would lose to Hillary Clinton in dramatic fashion and cost us seats in down-ballot races from California to Maine.”
