John Kasich Becomes 16th Republican to Announce Presidential Bid

Governor John Kasich of Ohio has announced he will seek the Republican nomination for president.
Kasich, 63, became the 16th Republican to announce a run for the White House on Tuesday, in an event on the campus of Ohio State University in Columbus.
A fiscal conservative with a record of supporting programs for the poor, Kasich will compete with rivals like former Florida governor Jeb Bush and New Jersey governor Chris Christie to woo establishment Republicans.
Kasich, first elected in 2010, will try to position himself as a moderate, independent voice in the GOP field.
