NEC in The News: John Kasich Is Back in New Hampshire. It’s Not for the Foliage.
NEC in The News: The New York Times wrote John Kasich Is Back in New Hampshire. It’s Not for the Foliage. – April 4, 2018.
“A short while later, Mr. Kasich arrived for the stated purpose of the trip: a fireside forum at New England College in Henniker, where a bipartisan crowd of some 150 students and political veterans received him warmly. ‘He’s a positive voice,’ said Gary Glines, 60, whose wife, a Democrat, had turned his attention to Mr. Kasich before the 2016 primary. She said, ‘You need to listen to this guy. He sounds like you.’
By the night’s end, Mr. Kasich, appearing for over an hour, sounded like a person running for president — or, at least, a person reminding New Hampshire that he is not this president.
He lamented the ‘namby-pamby’ of his fellow politicians. He pledged to ‘do the best I can at doing the best I can.’ He encouraged the crowd to give an ovation to Dana Bash of CNN.
