John Kasich has had a storied career in both the public and private sectors. He was the 69th governor of Ohio from 2011 to 2019.  He served as a member of Congress from central Ohio for 18 years. Kasich was elected to the U.S. House at just 30 years old, after having become the youngest state senator in Ohio history. He went on to become the chairman of the House Budget Committee and balanced the Federal Budget four times—a feat not accomplished since. After leaving Congress in 2000, Kasich worked as a managing director in the Investment Banking Division of Lehman Brothers, where he helped companies secure the resources they needed to succeed and create jobs.

Kasich was a FOX television commentator for two shows, Heroes and Heartland with John Kasich, in addition to being a stand-in host for both Bill O’Reilly and Chris Matthews. In January of 2019, Kasich made his debut as a Senior Political Commentator for CNN, where he appears across a variety of programs. He currently co-hosts the podcast Kasich & Klepper with The Daily Show's Jordan Klepper which explores America's biggest cultural conversations with optimism, humor, and understanding.

Kasich is the author of New York Times best-sellers: Courage is Contagious; Stand for Something: The Battle for America’s Soul; Every Other Monday; and Two Paths: America Divided or United, which reflects on 2016 run as Republican Primary Presidential candidate and his hopes for America’s future. His latest book, entitled It’s Up To Us: Ten Little Ways We Can Bring About Big Change, was released in 2019.

Kasich is a graduate of The Ohio State University, where he also served as a Presidential Fellow. No longer Ohio’s Governor, he continues his roles as husband, father and American Citizen, eager for the next chapter.
