You really have to wonder how committed John Kasich is to his campaign for Governor of Ohio when his plans for this week include a trip to New York City to promote his new book.

According to his publisher Simon and Schuster John’s going to be in NYC on Saturday promoting his book on Fox News and MSNBC. And on Sunday he’ll be doing the same on Fox News Radio.

I’m not exactly sure how pimping your new book on Fox News in another state is going to help convince the people of Ohio that you’re the most qualified person to lead the state. Maybe that’s all part of the secret plan he is going to reveal in the fall.

It seems more likely he’s trying to hedge his bets by lining his pockets with more cash and maybe setting himself up for another job at Fox once his political career official ends after his defeat in November.
