In Ohio, a Republican governor who once supported a “debate for the ages” has made it his goal to have as many debates as possible.
In a recent interview with a local news station, Gov.
John Kasich said, “We’re not going to be debating the candidates every night.
We’re not just going to have a debate every day.
We are going to allow people to ask questions and people can debate.”
But the governor has been less than explicit about how he plans to implement his plan.
In an interview with local reporters, Kasich said he’d like to see more debates and said he wants the process to “take a little bit longer.”
The Ohio legislature passed a law last year requiring the governor to allow local officials to make the decision about whether to hold debates, which are usually held at night.
But a spokesman for Kasich’s office said the governor had not yet finalized whether or not the state would accept the legislation, and Kasich’s spokeswoman said the governors office would discuss the matter when it comes to more debates.
The governor’s office has also said it would not allow a debate at a time when he is not on the ballot, as required by state law.
