As the 16th candidate to enter an already crowded group seeking the Republican nomination, John Kasich had his work cut out for him. When he announced his run for the Presidency in July, he polled lower than any of the current candidates.

After a lackluster performance in the Iowa caucuses, Governor John Kasich of Ohio surged to second place in the New Hampshire primary, a decisive win over big names like Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, the winner in Iowa. Here are a few reasons that Governor Kasich is the candidate who deserves your vote.
