Gudman endorses Kasich for president

GUDMANLake Oswego City Councilor Jeff Gudman, who is seeking the Republican nomination for state treasurer in the May 17 primary, announced Friday that he is endorsing John Kasich for president.

Gudman said he based his support on Kasich’s “moderate approach and solid track record as governor (of Ohio)”and said “he is our best shot at winning the oval office in November.”

“Governor Kasich has brought balance to a diverse state going through a challenging economic transition. He streamlined government to create jobs and economic prosperity, and made difficult decisions that demonstrate his strong and incorruptible character,” Gudman said. “That’s the kind of governance that is good for Oregon and the entire country.”

KASICHGudman said he will attend a Kasich town hall this afternoon in Portland to lend his support. The gathering is scheduled from 2:30-4 p.m. at Castaway Portland, 1900 N.W. 18th Ave.

“With a brokered convention being a real possibility, Oregon will finally have a say in who we elect president,” Gudman said. “Governor Kasich wins over Hillary Clinton in nearly every poll. No other candidate running for president does. As the presumptive Republican nominee for state treasurer, I want a strong candidate at the top of the ticket who can create enthusiasm in the electorate as they cast votes for governor, secretary of state and myself.”
