Kasich (R-Ohio) plans to file papers today launching a committee to explore a bid for the Republican presidential nomination in 2000, sources close to the congressman said.

Rep. John R. Kasich of Ohio on Wednesday shelved his Oval Office dreams and threw his support behind a "soul brother," Texas Gov. George W. Bush. Crushed under the Bush financial steamroller--Kasich raised $1.6 million compared with the front-runner's $36 million--he is the second candidate this week to drop out of the race for the Republican presidential nomination. Sen. Bob Smith of New Hampshire quit his bid for the White House and said he will run as an independent.

Rep. John R. Kasich, an Ohio Republican, is considering ending his longshot drive for the White House soon, party sources said Saturday. They said Kasich, chairman of the House Budget Committee, intended to decide soon whether to compete in the Aug. 14 Republican straw poll in Iowa or end his campaign before the nonbinding but traditionally pivotal contest. "It is too soon to say it is over, but John is trying to figure out if it is worth going on," one source said.

Ignoring $90 billion in true deficit reduction, the Democrat-controlled U.S. House of Representatives once again said "no" to a measure that promised to eliminate wasteful government spending (Nov. 23). Curiously, many Democrats joined with Republicans in supporting the John R. Kasich (D-Minn.)/Timothy J. Penny (R-Ohio) package which, among other things, would have cut Congress' budget by 7.5% and taxpayer-financed mail by 20%. Sadly, the measure would have passed if only three more Democrats had supported it. When are members of Congress going to understand that it's time to make difficult spending decisions?

Both the Salt Lake Tribune and Roll Call, a Capitol Hill newspaper, reported Thursday that the senator was considering a run for the presidency, quoting advisors.

A leading House Republican said Sunday that Congress would let the government take on new debt in order to avoid a possible cash crisis next month, an about-face from GOP efforts to use the federal debt limit as a lever over the White House in budget negotiations. "We're going to raise the debt ceiling," predicted House Budget Committee Chairman John R. Kasich (R-Ohio). "In my opinion, we should. . . . My sense is you don't want to mess around with defaulting here in the United States."

Whenever Rep. Deborah Pryce boards a flight home to Columbus at the end of another exhausting week in Washington, she keeps one eye out to see if fellow Ohio Republican John R. Kasich is getting on the same plane. If she sees him, she pretends to be asleep. "Do you know what it's like to be trapped on an airplane sitting next to John Kasich?" laments Pryce. "Sitting next to all that intensity, after being around it all week? It's a good thing it's just an hour flight."
