Former Governor John Kasich (R-OH) said on CNN’s “Situation Room” on Wednesday that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) was shameful for spending money to support Rep. Peter Meijer (R-MI), Trump-backed challenger John. Gibbs, who defeated Meijer in a GOP primary Tuesday.
Gas tanker Pamela Brown said, “Governor Kasich, you have Arizona, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Republican election deniers could be overseeing the election soon. How dangerous would that be?”
Kasich said: ‘It is very dangerous and I hope they all lose. If you can’t accept the outcome of this latest election and you want to participate, what will that do to the process? So I hope they all lose. It’s terrible that that happened. By the way, what’s interesting in Michigan, this guy Gibbs who beat Meijer, Meijer voted to impeach Donald Trump, the Democratic Party itself put money into the Gibbs campaign because they thought he would be the weaker candidate and they could beat Meijer who actually stood up and voted to impeach Trump. Well, go find that out. That’s a bit crazy and not good for the future of the way we conduct elections in this country.”
Brown said, ‘It’s a big risk. It’s true. The DCCC put all this money behind Meijer’s opponent, who won last night. How certain is it that he would lose in the general?”
Kasich said, “Just think how crazy this is. This is totally crazy. The Democrats who say they want reasonable Republicans in office are then going to beat the reasonable Republican and support someone who is a Trumper. It’s just crazy. They should be ashamed of themselves. It shouldn’t have worked that way.”
