(WKEF/WRGT) - Governor John Kasich spoke out about his plans for once his current term is up on CNN's State of the Union Sunday morning, saying "all options are on the table for me" when it comes to 2020.
"I don't know what I'm going to do," the Republican governor said. His second term ends in January 2019, and speculation about another run for president at the end of his time in office has been circulating for months. CNN previously reported that Kasich and Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, a Democrat, are considering a "unity" presidential ticket. However, on Sunday, Kasich didn't give away much about the possibility.
"All I am doing is making sure that both now and when I'm out, that I can have a voice that can help the country, that can bring it together," he said.
"And if I go any farther than that, Jake," Kasich continued with a laugh, "I won't be able to get in my house tonight. My wife will have it barricaded, so I'm not going there."
During his time on the show, the governor also touched on a hot topic in the recent gun debate, saying he believes the president will sign "some really good, strong, common sense gun legislation."
"If he doesn't, send it to him anyway," Kasich said.
His final State of the State address will be Tuesday, March 6 at 7 p.m.
