Kasich shut down the suggestion that he is planning to become an Independent, but emphasized the need for the GOP to reform.

“No, not at this – what I’m saying to you is we need to fix it,” he said when asked about becoming an Independent.

“If the Republican Party is going to be anti-immigration, if it’s not going to be worried about debt, if it’s going to be anti-trade, this is not where our party can be.”
