John Kasich: ‘I’ve About Had It’ With Fellow Republicans In The 2016 Race

Republican presidential candidate and Ohio Gov. John Kasich said Tuesday at a campaign rally that he’s “about had it” with other GOPers in the 2016 race, The Columbus Dispatch reported.

Kasich was all fired up at his “debate send-off rally” in his hometown of Westerville, Ohio, a suburb of the state’s capitol, Columbus.

“Do you know how crazy this election is? Let me tell you something, I’ve about had it with these people,” Kasich said, according to the report. “I want you to know I’m fed up. I’m sick and tired of listening to this nonsense and I’m going to have to call it like it is in this race.”

Kasich is scheduled to square off with the other GOP nominee hopefuls Wednesday night at the CNBC debate at the University of Colorado.

“What’s happened to our party? What’s happened to the conservative movement?” Kasich said to the crowd, according to the publication. “I’m done being polite and listening to this nonsense.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.
