WASHINGTON (AP) — John Kasich says his home state victory Tuesday night dealt Donald Trump a “very, very big blow” to getting the number of delegates required to win the GOP presidential nomination. He tells NBC’s “Today” that winning Ohio makes the case that neither Trump nor Texas Sen. Ted Cruz can “come into Ohio with the philosophies they have and win. And if you can’t win Ohio, you can’t be president.”

Kasich has won no other states and lags far behind Trump and Cruz in delegates. But Kasich predicts that “nobody is going to have enough delegates” by the time of the Republican National Convention this summer to win the nomination outright.
