Then-Congressman John Kasich spoke to the Republican National Convention in 1996, when he reportedly had been on the short list to be Bob Dole’s running mate and was the chair of the House Budget Committee. 

“Budgets are about ideas. Budgets are about values. And most important, they are about people.”

Kasich also spoke before the RNC in 2000, several months after he ended his campaign for the nomination for president. This time – Kasich says he’s cautiously pleased to be on the list. 

“What I’ve been surprised is people are excited that I’m going to speak. I better not screw this completely up, so I’ll give it the best I can. I’ll talk about Ohio, where we were, where we are, and where we can be if we have new leadership.”

Kasich starts a parade of governors that includes Scott Walker of Wisconsin and concludes with New Jersey’s Chris Christie, who speaks after Ann Romney.
