Ohio Gov. and one time GOP presidential candidate John Kasich attacked judge Roy Moore for having “ludicrous” and “divisive” views Sunday.


On CNN’s “State of the Union With Jake Tapper,” the host asked, “I get that you’re not going to support Judge Moore, but he believes that homosexual acts should be illegal. He questions where Barack Obama was born. He’s written that Keith Ellison, the congressman from Minnesota should not be allowed to serve in congress, because Ellison is a Muslim. What role should the Republican Party play when it comes to Roy Moore’s campaign?”

Kasich answered, “Well, look, I don’t run the party. I can tell you for me, I don’t support that.”

“I couldn’t vote for that. I don’t know what the heck I would have to do, but I don’t live in that state. Those claims are–I mean, they’re ludicrous and they’re divisive. And if that’s where we’re headed, well, first of all, we can’t–remember, I wrote that book. An america united or divided, you know, two paths,” Kasich continued.
