US could be witnessing 'end of a two-party system': Republican governor

GOP Gov. John Kasich and Democrat Gov. John Hickenlooper have teamed up.

“I don't think either party is answering people's deepest concerns and needs,” Kasich told ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl in an interview that aired today on “This Week.” "We may be beginning to see the end of a two-party system. I'm starting to really wonder if we are going to see a multiparty system at some point in the future in this country"

He added, "I don't think it's going to happen tomorrow, but I think over time, do not be surprised if these millennials and these Gen Xers begin to say, ‘Neither party works, we want something new.’”

Kasich and Hickenlooper have recently sought to transcend the sharp political divisions in the U.S. to find bipartisan solutions on critical issues such as health care and immigration.

Both are nearing the end of their gubernatorial terms and could be candidates for president in 2020.

Hickenlooper said there is still "a lot to do” in Colorado, and as to a possible 2020 bid, he said, "I haven't formed a PAC. I don't have committees all over the country. I'm not doing those things.” It's a "maybe" whether he'll run, he said.

Kasich, who was the last rival to Trump to exit the 2016 race for the Republican nomination, refused to say whether he would mount a primary challenge against the sitting president.

“I have no idea what I'm going to do. I'd like to have a voice, I'd like to be constructive, I like to rally people," Kasich said. "But frankly in the end, at the end of the day, it's in the hands of the Lord as to what my future is.”

Kasich spoke of the demands of a presidential campaign while also conceding he is also a "maybe" on a 2020 presidential bid.
