“There is no path right now for me. I don’t see a way to get there,” Kasich said in a Friday CNN interview, citing Trump’s strong backing among GOP voters.
“Ninety percent of the Republican Party supports him,” Kasich said. “It may be a shrinking Republican Party, but nevertheless.”
“Maybe somebody wants to run and make a statement and that’s fine, but I’ve never gotten involved in a political race where I didn’t think I could win,” he added.
Kasich, a frequent Trump critic who sought the GOP’s 2016 nomination, did hint that he may yet run for office again.
“Right now there’s no path, but we never know what the future’s going to bring,” he said.
