Kasich Assembles Pennsylvania Team

KasichOhio Governor, and Republican presidential candidate, John Kasich yesterday earned major support in Pennsylvania.

Former Congressmen Bob Walker and John Fox, former State Senator, former Chairman of the Pennsylvania Republican Party Earl Baker, former Senate President Pro Tempore Bob Jubelirer, former Secretary of Revenue Howard Cohen, Luzerne County Republican Party Chairman Bill Urbanski, and Pittsburgh business leader Nick Haden all announced their endorsement of Kasich.

“I worked alongside John Kasich for fourteen years, and throughout that time, Kasich was a leader, a visionary and a reformer,” Walker said. “Whether it was balancing the federal budget or reforming the Pentagon, John never shied away from a challenge, and was uniquely able to bring aboard both Republicans and Democrats to accomplish big things. I am thrilled to serve as his Honorary State Chair, and I look forward to working with our tremendous Leadership Team in Pennsylvania to deliver my home state for John Kasich.”

“John Kasich has precisely the experience and the record of success that America sorely needs,” stated Baker. “As governor of Ohio, he turned an $8 billion projected budget deficit into a $2 billion surplus, and presided over an economy that has created more than 347,000 private sector jobs. All the while, he cut taxes by $5 billion dollars – more than any sitting governor – and the state workforce is at its lowest level in more than three decades. By applying conservative principles to pragmatic problem-solving, John Kasich has breathed new life into Ohio, and I am proud to join his team in Pennsylvania.”

“I am honored to have gained the confidence of such an esteemed group of conservative leaders,” Kasich responded. “Pennsylvania is a big, important state, and with the remarkable team that has come together here, I know we are going to be very competitive.”

The Kasich for America Team is included below:

Honorary State Chair:

Bob Walker, former Member of Congress


Earl Baker, former State Senator, former Chair of the Pennsylvania Republican Party

John Fox, former Member of Congress

Bob Jubelirer, former Senate President Pro Tempore

Howard Cohen, former Secretary of Revenue

Leadership Team:

Bill Urbanski, Luzerne County Republican Party Chairman

  1. Thanks so much for providing individuals with an extraordinarily brilliant opportunity to discover important secrets from this blog. It’s usually very brilliant and also stuffed with a lot of fun for me and my office fellow workers to search your blog nearly three times a week to read through the latest stuff you will have. And indeed, I’m usually motivated with your amazing methods you serve. Selected 1 areas in this post are basically the most beneficial we have had.

  2. There is no room in Today’s Republican Party for an old-fashioned conservative like him. Some other time, John!

  3. “Major support”? haha, who knew that some of these has-beens were even still alive?

  4. Although he sweats profusely and stumbled over his words, Kasich was the only candidate at the first GOP debate to say something serious when he did form a completely audible sentence. Rationally delivered, his ideas are way far conservative, but at least not absurd or insane. Just wrong for this country. But he will likely be out of the race long before the PA primary. Not sure he even makes the next debate stage.

  5. I forgot to mention that Kasich will be victimized by Fina and a clown car full of Repervlicans on their way to Tom Corbett’s Porn Emporium.
