As the last governor standing in the GOP race, Kasich said he doesn’t want to be known as the non-outsider candidate of the Republican Party.

“The establishment has always been fearful of me… Nobody tells me what to do, except my wife, and at the end of the day I think the establishment gets nervous around me because I’m a guy that shakes things up and I don’t sit on K-Street and listen to a bunch of lobbyists or Washington insiders. I never have and I never will.”

Kasich says he’s looking forward to campaigning on Super Tuesday.
