Without thinking about it, he brushed the dust off with his bare hand, Christian Broadcasting News (CBN) reported on Thursday....

The Ohio governor and mainstay of the party’s mainstream is out this week with a book that at times reads like an angry breakup letter. “Oh yeah, I’m a Repub… ,” Kasich trailed off, conspicuously unable to finish the word in his rapid-fire stream...
