“John Kasich says DC residents can’t vote because they vote for Democrats”


So when the Post editorial board sat down with Ohio Gov. John Kasich, they asked him about it and he offered a strikingly honest case against voting rights for the District — too many Democrats:

ARMAO: But you realize though that people in D.C. pay taxes, go to war and they have no vote in Congress.


ARMAO: How is that–

KASICH: Well look, I am not – I don’t – I am not, because you know what, what it really gets down to if you want to be honest is because they know that’s just more votes in the Democratic Party. That’s what–

ARMAO: So if there were Republicans in the District, you would have a different position?

KASICH: Yeah, okay, well look, they send me a bill, I’m president of the United States, I’ll read your editorials.
