Kasich declares his candidacy for President with a 45-minute personal and at times emotional speech in which he differentiates himself from his rival Republican candidates as he stresses a more empathetic approach.
The Lord wants our hearts to reach out to those who don’t have what we have. That shouldn’t be hard for America, that’s who we are. Empathy. Don’t be so quick too judge.
The candidates for the GOP Presidential debate are announced: Trump, Bush, Walker, Huckabee, Carson, Cruz, Rubio, Paul, Christie and Kasich will appear on stage on Aug 6 in Cleveland, OH. RNC chairman Priebus:
Our field is the biggest and most diverse of any party in history and I am glad to see that every one of those extremely qualified candidates will have the opportunity to participate on Thursday evening. Republicans across the country will be able to choose which candidate has earned their support after hearing them talk through the issues.
