Former Republican presidential candidate Ohio Gov. John Kasich did not vote for Donald Trump for president and instead wrote in Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), the party's 2008 nominee, Cleveland.com reported.

Kasich has refused to back Trump throughout the election.

"The divisiveness, the division, the name calling it just doesn't go down well with me," he said in June after Trump attacked a federal judge's Mexican heritage.

And in August, Kasich said that Trump would struggle to win in Ohio, suggesting that the GOP nominee is divisive.

"He's going to win parts of Ohio where people are really hurting and where people of both parties have failed to fix our education system," Kasich said on CNN at the time. "But I still think it's difficult if you are dividing to be able to win in Ohio. I think it's really, really difficult."
