John Kasich: 'I Don't Know If My Purpose Is to Be President'

The Ohio governor became reflective at a campaign stop today.

Later, in Sandy Springs, Georgia, Kasich said he had just had a chance to meet with pastors, something he said he almost never does. “I don’t like combining religion and politics in some sort of direct way,” he told an overflow crowd at an event campaign stop.

But he told everyone that they were special, and once again reflected on his purpose.

“I’m following the purpose that I think has been laid out for me,” Kasich said. “And I want you to know that to achieve this goal—and I’m not sure exactly what the goal is. Some might say it’s to be elected president. Maybe it’s a different goal. Maybe it’s raising the bar and giving people a sense that the world can be a better place. That we can be positive. That we can have solutions. Maybe that’s enough.”
