Kasich: I've Got the Best Chance of Beating Hillary
During a special, two-hour edition of The Kelly File, Ohio Gov. John Kasich defiantly reacted to "Washington insiders" calling for him to get out of the race. Kasich said he's going all the way.
"I intend to be the nominee, and I intend to beat Hillary Clinton by more than 11 points when we get to the fall election," he said. "So, make no mistake about it. This is what I'm supposed to do and I am doing it all out."
Kelly raised the question of Kasich struggling to rise above his Republican competition.
"I'm just raising the question that a lot of Republicans have," Kelly said. "Because they see you, even though they like you, struggling to get above the bottom rung in these elections, except for New Hampshire, which is a state you saturated. And their question is whether you are stealing votes from candidates who could actually win."
Kasich said he's consistently proven his detractors wrong.
"You know what a lot of people say? If I were to get out, Donald Trump would win Ohio and that would be the end of it. And now articles are being written to say that maybe Kasich is the one who can really get the field consolidated, beat Trump and is most electable in terms of beating Hillary Clinton.
"So, we intend to keep going, Megyn. We're not stopping, and I'm not giving up. And I'm certainly not listening to a bunch of people...insiders in Washington, DC."
