Rep. Kasich to form exploratory presidential committee

January 12, 1999
Web posted at: 3:25 p.m. EDT (1525 GMT)

WASHINGTON (January 12) -- House Budget Chairman John Kasich will file papers later this month forming a presidential exploratory committee, sources close to Kasich tell CNN. The sources say he will formally kick off his campaign at a public event in Columbus, Ohio, on February 15.

Rep. John Kasich  

Kasich, 46, has chaired the House Budget Committee since Republicans took control of the House in 1995. Still, the boyish Ohio lawmaker remains unknown to many Americans; only 2 percent of Republicans who were surveyed in a fall CNN/USA Today/Gallup Poll call him their choice to be the 2000 presidential nominee, well behind Texas Gov. George W. Bush, former Red Cross President Elizabeth Dole, Arizona Sen. John McCain, former Vice President Dan Quayle and others.

Kasich aides say he plans to pioneer campaigning on the Internet as part of a cross-generational appeal to Republican voters. Said one aide, "We plan to do for Internet campaigning what John F. Kennedy did for television campaigning in 1960."
