|| By FITSNEWS || Ohio governor John Kasich is making his fifth visit to early-voting South Carolina today.
According to a release from the New Day political action committee supporting his bid, the fiscally liberal “Republican” will attend a Beaufort County GOP meet and greet at Aunt Chiladas Restaurant (69 Pope Avenue) on Hilton Head Island, S.C. from 12:00 – 1:30 p.m. EDT. After that, Kasich will participate in another meet and greet at the Lake House Ballroom (127 Sun City Lane) at Sun City near Bluffton, S.C. from 4:30 – 5:30 p.m. EDT.
As this website has made clear, we believe Kasich’s best days are behind him. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, he was a genuine pro-freedom, pro-free market champion … but in recent years he’s become just another status quo “Republican” hack.
Like Mark Sanford, Kasich has become the very sort of politician he once derided – going along to get along regardless of the harm done to citizens and taxpayers.
That’s too bad … he “coulda been a contender.”
