CNN’s Jake Tapper spoke with Ohio Governor John Kasich this morning about the future of the GOP, given the likelihood that Roy Moore will be the next U.S. senator from Alabama.
“Does Judge Roy Moore,” Tapper asked, “represent the future of the Republican party?”
Kasich laughed and said, “I certainly hope not.”
He went on to talk about a “struggle for the soul” in both parties, but he went on to say of the GOP, “If the party can’t be fixed, Jake, then I’m not gonna be able to support the party, period.”
Tapper picked up on this and asked Kasich what he meant by that (i.e. becoming an independent).
“We need to fix it,” Kasich said. “If our party, if the Republican party, is gonna be anti-immigration, if it’s not gonna be worried about debt, if it’s going to be anti-trade, this is not where our party can be.”
