Ohio Gov. John Kasich told CNN's Anderson Cooper on Monday he hasn't yet made up his mind on endorsing his former rival for the GOP presidential nomination Donald Trump.
"I am undecided," Kasich said in an interview aired on "Anderson Cooper 360."
"At the end of the day, endorsing will mean a lot," Kasich said, "and frankly my wife and my daughters have watched this, and if I were to turn around today and endorse him, they would be like, 'Why, Dad?' And that matters to me."
Kasich said he is watching to see what Trump, the presumptive party nominee, does.
"He has a chance to move to the positive side and unify this country," Kasich said. "I made it clear that I need to see a positive approach. And if there's not one forthcoming, it will be a real problem."
Republicans are divided over Trump's candidacy, with some prominent members of the party declining the endorse Trump over either his social or foreign policies. Some, including writers P.J. O'Rourke and Max Boot have said they will vote for Democrat Hillary Clinton.
Others, reportedly led by 2012 nominee Mitt Romney, are seeking a third-party conservative candidate.
Still others warn that a third-party move would hand the election – and several Supreme Court appointments – to Clinton.
