Akron, OH – Tom Zawistowski, President of the Ohio Citizens PAC, today exposed the facts about Ohio Governor John Kasich’s misleading claims about his election results in the 2014 Election. Zawistowski provided results from Cuyahoga County that show that Kasich got even less people to vote for him in Cuyahoga County than Mitt Romney did and would actually have no chance of winning Ohio if he were the Republican nominee.
Zawistowski said “Here are the facts on John Kasich in Cuyahoga County. Mitt Romney got 190,660 votes in Cuyahoga County in 2012, John Kasich only got 172,319 in his pretend “land slide” election victory. Kasich didn’t get anyone in Cuyahoga County to vote for him, he got them to NOT vote for him! 447,273 Cuyahoga County voters voted for Barack Obama in 2012. No sane person believes that those voters would come out and vote for John Kasich for President.”
Zawistowski concluded by saying, “As we documented after the 2014 election, nearly 1,000,000 Ohioans were motivated to not vote at all by John Kasich’s campaign and record and those people would come out and vote against him in a Presidential election where they actually had a Democrat for which to vote. Secondly, 88,000 Ohioans who actually went to the polls choose NOT to vote for Kasich and left their ballot blank, which is more than his margin of victory of 77,000 in 2010. John Kasich is no Scott Walker but the Karl Rove Establishment wing of the Republican Party are going to makes sure that Kasich splits the Walker vote to make sure Jeb Bush wins the nomination. All Conservatives need to understand, a vote for Kasich is a vote for Jeb Bush.”
