Ohio governor John Kasich hammered Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for her opposition to Ohio’s voting laws, saying she was engaging in ‘silly demagoguery.’
Kasich pointed out that the former Secretary of State is requesting 20 mandatory days of early voting nationwide, but that his state already allows for 27 days.
The governor explained that Clinton should worry about the state in which she served as Senator, which has absolutely no early voting.
Via the Daily Caller:
“First of all, I think it’s demagoguery. And secondly, if she wants to sue somebody, let her sue New York,” Kasich said. “In Ohio, we have like 27 days of early voting. OK, 27 days, a couple hundred hours. In New York, the only early voting — there is none. The only voting that occurs is on Election Day? What is she talking about?”
“I like Hillary, but I gotta tell you — the idea that we are going to divide Americans and we’re going to use demagoguery, I don’t like it,” Kasich said. “Now, I haven’t said a word about Hillary, but to come into the state of Ohio and say we are repressing the vote when New York has only Election Day and we have 27 days, what’s she — come on! That’s just silliness. I’m disappointed in her, frankly.”
Kasich railed on Hillary asking, “Why don’t you go sue your own people?”
He added that the presidential hopeful “ought to know better.”
She ought to, but she doesn’t. Ever.

Comment: Is Kasich right when he says Hillary’s opposition to current voter laws is no more than race-baiting demagoguery?
