CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Ohio Gov. John Kasich is campaigning again in New Hampshire.
The former presidential candidate and chief Donald Trump critic is the first of 2016’s failed GOP hopefuls to return to the state since the February primary.
Kasich is in New Hampshire this time on behalf of Republican gubernatorial candidate Chris Sununu, who is facing a primary. But on a two-day trip through the state, Kasich also is clearly visiting for himself.
He credits New Hampshire, home of the first primary, with keeping his presidential hopes alive after he took second in February’s contest. His trip, which ended Monday, marked his first return since.
Kasich is ribbing reporters for speculating about a 2020 presidential candidacy — but he’s hinting at interest.
