The politics of Ronald Reagan’s children couldn’t be any more diverse. Ron Reagan Jr. is an atheist and former liberal radio host. His other son, Michael Reagan is a former conservative talk radio host.
The latter son came out with a Presidential endorsement on Saturday, choosing Ohio governor John Kasich as his pick for the nomination:
If Republicans really want an adult as POTUS and can beat Hilary in Nov.@JohnKasich is your only choice…If you don't we wont!

Michael Reagan highlighted Kasich’s experience as a congressman and governor and cited him as a presidential hopeful that can perpetuate his father’s political legacy.
“You see many Republicans claiming the label of ‘Reagan conservative’ but not many whose leadership truly embodies my father’s principles and spirit. Gov. John Kasich is a noteworthy exception,” Reagan said in a statement.
“I’m confident that his record of success, his vision for America and his ability to bring people together is exactly what our country needs in the midst of division and uncertainty,” he added. “To continue my father’s great legacy, I’m proud to endorse John Kasich for President of the United States.”
