Ohio Gov. John Kasich won the primary election in his home state on Tuesday night. That's the bare minimum that can be asked of a presidential candidate -- ask U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio about that -- but Kasich is hoping that his first win might be the start of something special for him.
Jason Hart, a national reporter for Watchdog who lives in Ohio, says it would indeed take something special for Kasich to have a chance at catching Donald Trump and Ted Cruz for the GOP nomination. It's almost mathematically impossible for him to finish with the most delegates, but with the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Kasich might be hoping for a little more home cooking in August.
But Kasich's whole campaign has been a Cinderella run. He entered as one of many governors running for president, and has unexpectedly outlasted Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Rick Perry and Scott Walker.
