Gov. John Kasich says that “everybody needs to take a little chill pill” and just let the Republican nomination process proceed.

In an interview with CNN’s Dana Bash on “State of the Union” on Sunday, Kasich said, “everybody’s got to face the fact that we’re going to an open, multi-ballot convention. That’s where we’re headed.”

Bash asked Kasich, “At this point, it is all about gobbling up as many delegates as you can to have the momentum you just talked about and to keep Donald Trump from getting more. Do you believe there is any way you and [crscore]Ted Cruz[/crscore] could work in a coordinated fashion from now through June to prevent Trump from getting the nomination?”

“I don’t see how — look, Dana, here’s the thing. Everybody is focusing on process, okay? Delegates here, delegates there,” Kasich said, claiming that a contested convention is inevitable.

The Ohio governor then suggested that the “convention is an extension of what we’re going through right now. And so I’ve been at a convention that was contested in 1976. What happens is the delegates will take everything seriously. They will take a look at people’s experience and their electability. And that’s fine. I don’t know what’s everybody so panicked about this. Everybody needs to take a little chill pill, to tell you the truth.”
