Ohio Gov. John Kasich, appearing alongside former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger as he mulls a primary challenge to President Donald Trump, said Wednesday that the Republican Party has “never been my master” and that “all of my options are on the table” for 2020.
Speaking at an event promoting a nascent group of moderate Republicans in heavily Democratic California, Kasich said the GOP should cast itself in a more moderate, compromising mold.
Harmeet Dhillon, a San Francisco attorney and member of the Republican National Committee, warned that California Republicans should not “compromise our principles and become more like the Democrats in order to win elections.”
