Kasich Says He'd Be "Worst Vice President Ever"; Holds 100th NH Town Hall

Gov. John Kasich hosted his 100th town hall in New Hampshire Friday – just days before the first-in-the-nation primary there on Tuesday.

Polling is suggested that Kasich may be falling into fourth place among the GOP contenders, behind Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. In an interview on CNN, Kasich was asked if he’d consider a position as running mate for the nominee.

“I’d be the worst vice president anybody could ever imagine," Kasich said. "I’d be worse than Biden. Because I’m my own man. I’m not going to take orders from these people. That’s not what I do. It’s not who I am. I’m basically an unrelenting agent of change.”

Kasich was also asked how he thinks Trump’s strategy of big rallies over town hall meetings will work in the Granite State. Kasich said he thinks that style of campaigning will backfire, saying Trump – quoting Kasich – “can’t play catch-up here”.
