The marriage of political convenience between Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) was tested less than 12 hours into the honeymoon, as Kasich told reporters that he still wanted votes from his supporters in Indiana.“I’ve never told ’em not to vote for me,” Kasich told reporters at a campaign stop in Philadelphia. “They ought to vote for me. But I’m not over there campaigning and spending resources.”Just hours earlier, Kasich’s campaign co-chair in Indiana was saying the opposite. “Kasich is asking his supporters in Indiana to vote for Cruz so Trump does not win Indiana,” Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard Cruz told the Indianapolis Star, suggesting that Cruz would do the same with his voters in Oregon and New Mexico.
