WaPo’s O’Keefe: Brokered Convention Possibility with Crowded GOP ’16 Field

Appearing on MSNBC’s “Weekends with Alex Witt” on Saturday, Washington Post’s Ed O’Keefe discussed with host Alex Witt the race for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination.

He he pointed out the fact that, as of now, there is no clear GOP primary leader and Ohio Governor John Kasich is also thinking about running in the 2016 primary.

According to O’Keefe, especially with the addition of Kasich, the GOP race appears to be headed to a brokered convention.

“If Ohio moves its primary to March 15, that becomes a winner take all primary as well. Well who is thinking about running for president, but the Ohio governor, John Kasich. What happens here, you might be setting up the geographical wins and the possibility of, and we say this every four years, but it’s looking more realistic, a brokered convention. And that is what will cause great pause for Republicans as they head into the fall; the idea that you’re going to have so many disparity people winning all the different races and the possibility that nobody emerges.”
