Kasich Speaks After 2nd Place NH Finish: 'Light Overcame the Darkness'
After his impressive second-place finish in the New Hampshire Republican primary, John Kasich spoke to a crowd of supporters.
"When the media kept saying, 'How are you going to do this? Can you finish high?' You know what I said?" Kasich told the crowd. "I said I have an insurance policy. It's you. It's all of you."
The Ohio governor touted the positive campaign he ran and wondered aloud if his victory indicated that the country was "turning the page on a dark part of American politics."
"Because tonight," he said, "the light overcame the darkness of negative campaigning. And you made it happen! You made it happen!"
