John Kasich said Tuesday, just after casting his vote for himself in Ohio's primary in his hometown of Westerville, that he's worked to run a positive campaign, but he expects he'll be forced to talk about the "deep concerns" he has about how other candidates and one "in particular" are running their own races for the GOP presidential nomination.

"I've been very concerned," the Ohio governor told reporters outside the polling place, referring to his reactions about front-runner Donald Trump, his main competition for votes in his home state. "I just saw a commercial, I guess it was last night, of these comments that were made about women. I have two daughters. They see this stuff. What do you think they think? We'll have more to say about that."

Kasich said he's run a positive campaign all along, and was never tempted to go negative. But that doesn't mean he hasn't argued back against Trump.

"I was the first one to challenge Donald Trump for his positions on immigration and Ben Carson's position on Medicare," said Kasich, acknowledging that there were others who attacked Trump and other candidates, but stressing that he kept his arguments on the issues rather than staging personal attacks.

"We all know that by the fact that I ran a positive campaign or our team has run a positive campaign that there were probably missed opportunities to get attention early on," Kasich said. "But by continuing to run the race the positive campaign is now starting to shine through, like a beacon all over the country and as a result of that, it tells you do the right thing."

But Kasich promised that when he does take on Trump over his campaign, it won't be negative, but it will be to point out "things that I've seen that are deeply disturbing in this process. I think I have a right to do that as a candidate. In terms of rolling around in the mud, that is not where I intend to really ever go even in the fall election."

And what would he say to Trump today?

"You will not ruin my day after I voted for myself for president," he told the reporter asking about the front-runner. "I have nothing to say to him."
