Kasich: "I am going to leave Cleveland as the nominee"

“I am going to leave Cleveland as the nominee,” he said during the annual New York State GOP gala in New York City.

“Whether you believe it or not, it’s going to happen,” Kasich added. “We are going to go to a convention. This is not about the nomination. This is about who can win the White House after defeating Hillary Clinton.”

Kasich said that either Clinton or Bernie Sanders would escalate the national debt if elected president.

“We have $19 trillion in debt,” he said. “When the debt goes up, your opportunities to get a job go down. By the time they’re done giving away all the free stuff, the debt will be up to $30 trillion and no one will be able to get a job. This is why we have to stop them.”
