Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) on Tuesday said he has not ruled out a potential 2020 presidential run, while pointing to an uncertainty of the political climate.
“I honestly don’t know what my future is,” Kasich said on CNN’s “New Day.”
“We don’t know what is happening in politics today. We don’t know what is happening tomorrow,” he added.
Kasich, who was one of several GOP candidates vying for the presidential nomination in 2016, indicated that he needed to feel that certain preconditions are right before deciding to run.
“As to whether I would do something like that again? If I felt my country called me and it was practical, I’d have to very seriously think about it,” Kasich said.
“But right now, I’m not out there trying to create delegates and states. I don’t know what the future is going to bring.”
