Kasich Quotes Jesus, Reagan in Campaign

Ohio Gov. John Kasich launched his presidential campaign Tuesday, promising to take “the lessons of the heartland and straighten out Washington, D.C.” Kasich, a Republican, invoked Jesus Christ and Ronald Reagan in his speech from Ohio State University, telling the audience, “The light of a city on a hill cannot be hidden. America is that city and you are that light.” Kasich is the 16th Republican to declare his candidacy and needs about a half a percentage point in national polls and surveys to qualify for Fox News presidential debate on Aug. 6.
