John Kasich Town Hall, In Photos

This was my first time photographing Governor John Kasich. When I was in New Hampshire, he was not a priority as he was continually polling at the bottom of a massive list of candidates.

His event in Syracuse, New York was moved at least once to accommodate the crowds which according to reports were above 2500. For comparison, Bill Clinton’s event in Scranton had maybe 3-400 and Hillary’s in Syracuse had by my guess a 1000. Not sure what that says, the area around Syracuse is pretty conservative and likely will not go for Hillary or Bernie in the national election.

People seemed to be quite pleased by Ohio Governor John Kasich’s candor and his non-adversarial style of politics. He’s seen as a moderate – though his record at home shows very different leanings. His anti-abortion laws are some of the strongest, his voting restrictions have brought about lawsuits and he has not been kind to the poor of the state. In my opinion, he’s the most dangerous of all the Republican candidates as unlike the nearly universally reviled Trump and Cruz… Kasich might actually get something done.

But again, Trump might bring on the end of times. So, if you’re voting Republican this November, I’m not sure what to recommend.

    Zach, next time I see you I’ll give you a cootie shot (although you might be too young to know what I mean). 😉

      heh I am not unfortunately too young…. but I’m sure there’s an app for that now. (cooties, not the age)

    This is the closest I have come to actually watching a wingnut rally. It has been my contention wingnuts aren’t worth a shit. Now, I see i have been over-estimating them. Feel sorry for you,Zach, I hope it pays the bills.

    • Zach Roberts says:

      The Kasich supporters are interesting – as they believe that they’re supporting a sane conservative option. Unlike Trump where you need to be willfully ignorant to think that he’s not a racist and a sexist – Kasich comes off as a Bob Dole type.

      • mike from iowa says:

        If memory serves, Dole had a well known penchant for stray stuff not named Elizabeth Dole. What is Kasich hiding? (actually, Kasich does seem almost human for a wingnut,but….)
