Gov. John Kasich of Ohio shed his nice-guy image on Tuesday, lamenting the decline of the conservative movement and accusing his rivals for the Republican presidential nomination of peddling “crazy” ideas.
At a rally in Ohio, Mr. Kasich, a popular governor known for his moderate views, unloaded on his opponents.
“Let me tell you something,” Mr. Kasich said, his anger boiling over. “I’ve about had it with these people.”
Mr. Kasich went on to argue that Republicans who proposed abolishing Medicaid and Medicare, imposing a 10 percent flat tax, or deporting millions of people were out of touch with reality. Without mentioning anyone by name, Mr. Kasich appeared to be taking aim at Ben Carson and Donald J. Trump, the outsider candidates who have been dominating national and state polls for months.
“We’re gonna pick them up and we’re gonna take them to the border and scream at them to get out of our country,” he said, referring to Mr. Trump’s plan to build a wall along the Mexican border and remove immigrants who entered the United States illegally. “Well that’s just crazy.”
Mr. Kasich’s outburst came a day before Republicans will gather in Colorado for their third presidential debate. The Ohio governor has been investing much of his resources in New Hampshire in hopes that a strong performance in the primary there will jump-start his campaign, but he has struggled to break through in a crowded field as voters appear enticed by candidates who lack political experience.
Now Mr. Kasich is suggesting that his party has lurched too far to the right.
“What has happened to our party?” he asked. “What has happened to the conservative movement?”
