Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor said Thursday she has “no idea” if Gov. John Kasich would run for president for 2016, saying “he’s committed to Ohio. I think that he is committed to continuing the work we’ve started.”
Taylor was in Washington to attend a White House meeting of insurance commissioners, a session that included President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden. Taylor did not have the opportunity to speak at the gathering.
If Kasich is re-elected this fall and were to win the presidency, Taylor would become the governor and carry out the rest of the term.
