Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Hardball,” host Chris Matthews interview former Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge, who touted the presidential candidacy of Gov. John Kasich (R-OH).
During that interview, Matthews also praised Kasich and suggested he could be a potential running mate for Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton.
“I have talked about him being on the ticket with Hillary, so I do like Kasich,” Matthews said. “I’m not sure how he fits into your party any more. I wonder if your party has room for a moderate like Kasich any more. I just wonder. I look at all of the excitement for Cruz and Trump, and people far to the right of John Kasich seem to be getting all the noise, making all the noise.”
