Los Angeles Times:
John Kasich Might Have A Little Donald Trump In Him, And He's A Threat To Jeb Bush
His philosophy plays better in New Hampshire than in states with more conservative Republican voting bases. Kasich accepted federal money to expand Medicaid in his state as part of the Affordable Care Act, infuriating the law’s opponents.

And he has resisted harsh immigration rhetoric, while embracing a plan to provide legal status for people in this country illegally. ... On other issues, including abortion, he is fairly conservative. (Bierman, 8/28)
