Kasich said he has the best combination of expereience among all of the candidates and potential candidates.

Governor John Kasich isn't ready to say he's running for the White House, but if he does he says his record both in Washington and as a private executive make him uniquely qualified for president. 

Speaking on NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday, Kasich said he won't run for president unless he believes he can win, and that he can "step up" and help the country.

Kasich has visited the key primary states of New Hampshire and South Carolina in recent weeks. He launched a national fundraising effort after his supporters began raising money in Ohio with a new non-profit organization.

U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina on Monday is expected to join the field of Republican candidates that already includes U.S Senators Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, and Ted Cruz.

Other potential candidates include former Florida governor Jeb Bush, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.
