Kasich says Trump, Cruz would hurt GOP ballot

Posted: Updated:

John Kasich is painting a gloomy picture for Republicans on all levels if either Donald Trump or Ted Cruz is the party's presidential nominee in November.

The Ohio governor is citing "great concern" in the party - and not just about the White House race, but what happens if "we get blown out" in that contest.

Under that scenario, Kasich tells CBS' "Face the Nation" that "we would lose seats all the way from the statehouse to the courthouse" - meaning races all down the ballot.

He thinks that'll be "a big consideration" at the GOP convention this summer. Kasich's hope for the nomination is based on the idea that no candidate wraps up enough delegates before the convention - and that he can emerge there.
