John Kasich's campaign on Wednesday unveiled what it characterized as a "significant advertising buy" in Oregon ahead of the state's May 17 primary, touting the Ohio governor as the only candidate who can stop Donald Trump and defeat Hillary Clinton in November.
Kasich campaigning in Oregon:
"This year Oregon will play a decisive role in choosing our next president, and John Kasich is the clear choice," the narrator says in the ad, which will run in 15-second and 30-second versions. "Ted Cruz pulled out of Oregon, and John Kasich is the only one that can stop Trump and defeat Hillary Clinton in the fall."
Kasich - Media Management missed an imp points:
What the ad does not say is that Cruz abandoned his campaign efforts in Oregon, as well as in New Mexico, in exchange for Kasich ceding Indiana to him in an attempt to keep Trump from attaining the magic number of 1,237 delegates to clinch the nomination.
As far as Indiana is concerned, Kasich has said since the late Sunday-night pact was announced that he would not tell his supporters in the state to vote for Cruz, suggesting that his pulling of resources would have the intended effect.
Kasich's campaign, however, missedan important deadline last month to submit information and statements and is thus absent from Oregon's voting pamphlet.
As far as, Cruz and Kasich alliance was announced on 25th April, ahead of 5 states, super tuesday, as Trump claimed, it is "pathetic". There is yet, no coordination between Cruz - Kasich alliance to "Dump The Trump".
*This goes more in Donald Trump, as he is fast gaining on the path to White House, Presidential Nomination, by getting on the magic number of 1,237 delegates.
