(WASHINGTON EXAMINER) -- Republican Ohio Gov. John Kasich inched closer Sunday to announcing a 2020 presidential bid, saying he was having earnest conversations about the prospect of engaging in another campaign for the White House.
During an interview on ABC News' "This Week," Kasich said he is "very seriously" considering a bid when asked about his presidential ambitions. "These are earnest conversations that go on virtually every day with some of my friends, with my family. Look, we need different leadership, there isn't any question about it. I'm not only just worried about the tone, and the name calling, and the division in our country, and the partisanship, but I also worry about the policies."
"I'm out there trying to do what I can do," he continued. "I don't know when I will have to make a decision, but let's not -- let's be clear, I'm not being coy. I'm [not] just trying to do this for some kind of a game. This is really, really serious to me."
