Ohio Governor John Kasich says if the GOP doesn't fix itself, he won't continue supporting his own party.
Kasich said on CNN's "State of the Union," "If the party can't be fixed, then I'm not going to be able to support the party. Period." Kasich says he's worried about the country and his kids' future.
The governor did shut down any suggestions he's ready to leave the GOP, but emphasized the need for Republican reforms. Kasich says the party needs to stop being anti-immigration, anti-trade and it needs to worry about the debt. He also repeatedly pointed to public dissatisfaction with the Republican and Democratic parties, and referenced the strength of independent political identities.
