The notable declarations were given during a town hall in Milwaukee, which was moderated by Anderson Cooper.
Kasich told Cooper, “I haven’t seen the video but they tell me the video is real and of course I would”.
Trump’s signing of a loyalty pledge last September was important in helping him gain credibility within the Republican National Committee.
“I’m not in the habit of supporting someone who attacks my wife and my family”, he said. Asked one final time, he said, “I think nominating Donald Trump would be an absolute train wreck”.
A new Wisconsin poll shows that Ted Cruz now leads Donald Trump in advance of the state’s primary next Tuesday. The governor told Cooper he’d like to first see who secures the nomination. “If name calling, bringing in spouses, and ripping each other below the belt, and wrestling in the mud is our new politics we all need to stand against it, our children are watching”, said Gov. John Kasich, (R) Presidential Candidate.
“We are competing to win”, Cruz said. “I don’t think Kasich will ever be picked by the Republican convention, because he’s just too out of touch on what the party is in 2016″. “I’m way over two million votes more than him”, he said. Both Democratic candidates, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, also campaigned in the Midwestern state.
Donald Trump’s Presidential campaign manager has been charged with simple battery after allegedly assaulting a reporter.
“Look, I didn’t start it,”Trump said”.
Pressed again, Cruz replied: “I gave you my answer”. On ABC on Wednesday, the front-runner added, “I only want the people to support me….”
Trump and his team have braced for the possibility of a contested convention in recent weeks, as opposing forces have set their sights on denying him the nomination by preventing him from crossing the necessary delegate threshold.
Wisconsin has 42 delegates in a victor take all primary.
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker endorsed Cruz yesterday, saying he believes the Texas senator is best positioned to win the GOP nomination and defeat Clinton.
Cruz has 40 percent support compared with Trump’s 30 percent and Kasich’s 21 percent.
