Fox News Projects Kasich Will Finish 2nd in NH Ahead of Cruz, Bush and Rubio
Fox News projects that John Kasich will finish in second place in the New Hampshire Republican primary, which was easily won by Donald Trump.
Jeb Bush, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio were vying with Kasich for the hotly-contested runner-up position.
The impressive second-place finish by the Ohio governor gives a major boost to his campaign, especially after he finished a distant eighth in Iowa last week.
It also deals a blow to Rubio, whose strong, third-place finish in Iowa eight days ago gave him momentum that lasted until Saturday, when Rubio stumbled in the most recent GOP debate.
