Speaking at a Fairfax, Virginia campaign rally, Ohio Governor and Republican presidential candidate John Kasich said he won a previous election because women “left their kitchens” to vote for him.
“How did I get elected?” Kasich asked, referring to his first run for the Ohio state legislature. “I didn’t have anybody for me, we just got an army of people and many women, who left their kitchens to go out and go door-to-door and to put yard signs up for me.”
“All the way back, when– you know things were different,” he continued, “Now you call homes and everybody’s out working.”
Later when taking questions, Kasich got some pushback from a female rallygoer. “Your comment earlier about the women who came out of the kitchen to support you, I’ll come to support you, but I won’t be coming out of the kitchen,” she said.
“I got you,” Kasich responded.
It’s worth noting that the version of the video being circulated by some reporters does not contain his complete comments, cutting off before Kasich says that “things were different” and explaining that he was speaking about an earlier time (Kasich was first elected in 1976).
