Ohio, NJ govs text about 2016 presidential news

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio Gov. John Kasich says he and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie have been exchanging text messages about political speculation involving the 2016 presidential race.

The Ohio Republican said Friday he’s focused on his current job and not thinking about “other hills to climb.”

Kasich says Christie, another prospective GOP contender in 2016, texted him about a Thursday story by the political news website Politico. The story labeled Kasich’s work since taking office in 2010 as a “blueprint for success.” The article said Republican leaders could seriously consider Kasich as a presidential candidate or running mate if he solidly wins re-election next year.

Kasich told Christie he hadn’t read the story.

Kasich calls his job “pretty amazing” and tells reporters he sometimes finds it hard to believe he’s governor.
