A former GOP presidential candidate and current governor admitted on MSNBC that he voted early — and that not all the people he voted for are Republicans.
“I’m not a never anybody,” Ohio Gov. John Kasich told MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace when she asked him if he’s a “Never Trump” Republican.
Kasich said people who are confused about who they should vote for should cast ballots for “unifiers.”
“I early voted,” the governor said. “I didn’t vote for all Republicans. I vote for people that are unifiers. People that have courage. I don’t have to agree with them, but I want to have respect for them. I don’t want them to spend their time engaging in vitriol.”
The former 2016 presidential candidate said because “our leaders are not leading,” everyday Americans must rise up to make change as they did in the civil rights and anti-Vietnam War movements.
“The citizens scare politicians,” Kasich said.

CNN conservative zaps every Trump supporters’ argument against impeachment
Republican-turned-Independent David Gergen served in four presidential administrations, two of which were impeached. When he heard one of President Donald Trump's shills on CNN Wednesday evening, he was quick to flatten the argument.
Scott Jennings argued that what Democrats were doing was unprecedented, but CNN commentator Kirsten Powers said that former President Bill Clinton was nearly thrown out of office for lying about an affair, something she argued was far less important than extorting a foreign power to sway a presidential election.
Seth Meyers flattens Trump’s latest impeachment defense tactic — ‘slurring like a lunatic’ during rallies
Late-night comedian Seth Meyers observed that most people who were inches from being fired from their job would try and prove that they should remain. President Donald Trump, however, has taken a different path, "slurring like a lunatic while throwing in some of his trademark sexism."
Meyers played a clip of Trump's rally where he went after everything from admitting he demanded the Ukraine president say what he asked and an allegation that there'd be windmills all over the country under Hillary Clinton. Trump previously alleged that wind energy is dangerous because the windmills cause ear cancer. After an attack on Beto O'Rourke, Trump turned to Elizabeth Warren, who he said, "opened her fresh mouth."
Rachel Maddow wonders if Putin told Trump Seoul was nowhere near North Korea to mess with him
MSNBC host Rachel Maddow was flabbergasted by the recent revelation that Trump thought he could displace an entire South Korean city so that the 2,000 year-old capital would be safer. To make matters worse, President Donald Trump asked Russian President Vladimir Putin what he wanted the U.S. leader to do with North Korea.
The host compared the move to what it would be like to move the entirety of New York City, which has a smaller population than Seoul.
