Of all things, former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger used Snapchat this weekend to issue his official endorsement in the 2016 race, just like our founding fathers intended.
In a nine second video released Sunday, the Arnold decided not to toss his muscle behind his former Celebrity Apprentice boss Donald Trump, opting instead for Ohio Governor John Kasich, as had been expected.

“I want John Kasich to be the next nominee of the Republicans and also to be the next President of the United States. Here he is,” says Schwarzenegger.
The camera then turns to reveal the happy-looking Kasich, who endearingly chimes in with, ‘Thank you Arnold. Love you man!”.
According to the newest polling data from Real Clear Politics, the Ohio Governor will likely need all of the muscle he can get behind his campaign, as he currently sits in fourth behind Trump, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio. Kasich has said that he is hoping for a strong finish in his home state on March 15th, though he will likely need an outright win in the Buckeye State to keep his Presidential ambitions alive.
