Kasich: Hillary Using Demagoguery to Divide Americans

Friday on Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” Gov. John Kasich (R-OH) reacted to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton accusing Republicans of intentionally attempting to disenfranchise voter based on race, age and poverty level and said Clinton was attempting to “divide Americans and use demagoguery.”

When asked about Clinton backing an effect to sue Ohio over voting practices, Kasich said, “I think it’s demagoguery. If she wants to sue somebody, let them sue new york. they have 27 days of voting. in New York the only voting that occurs is on election day? What is she talking about? I like Hillary but the idea that we are going to divide Americans and use demagoguery, I don’t like it. I haven’t said a word about Hillary but to come into the state of Ohio saying we are suppressing the vote when New York has only one election day and we have 27, come on, that’s silliness.”

“Don’t be running around the country dividing Americans,” Kaisch continued. “Don’t come in and say we are deliberately trying to keep people from voting when her own state has less opportunity for voting and she is going to sue my state? That’s just silly.”

“In Ohio we have 28 days. In New York where she is from they have one day,” he added. “Why don’t you take care of business at home before you run around the country using these kind of demagogic statements that we don’t want people to vote Its ridiculous. Come on?”
