Kasich Apologizes for ‘Kitchen’ Comment

Ohio Gov. John Kasich offered an apology on Monday for his earlier comments that women were coming “out of their kitchens” to support his campaign. “Sure, I’m sorry. Anybody who’s offended—of course. I’m more than happy to say I’m sorry if I offended somebody out there, but it wasn’t intended to be offensive,” Kasich said on CNN’s The Situation Room. The Republican presidential candidate explained he was trying to say that he was appreciative to those who campaigned for him earlier in his career. “Sometimes when you operate on the high wire without a net sometimes you know you’ll fall off and not say things exactly the way you want to,” he added.
