Ohio Gov. John Kasich has already been mathematically eliminated from winning the GOP presidential nomination on the first ballot, but vowed there would be an open convention this summer – and said he is clearly the best candidate to defeat Democrat Hillary Clinton in November.

"I believe that a convention will look at somebody like me, and that’s why I think I’m going to be the nominee," Kasich said on ABC's "This Week"

"We just have to keep going, and we’re going to have an open convention."

The convention is "going to be so much fun," Kasich said. "Kids will spend less time focusing on [Justin] Bieber and [Kim] Kardashian and more time focusing on how we elect presidents. It will be so cool."

Kasich is staying in the race in hopes of preventing either Donald Trump or Ted Cruz from achieving the 1,237 delegates needed secure the nomination on the first vote at the convention.

Though delegates are bound on the first vote, most can change them in subsequent voting, and Kasich told host George Stephanopoulos that they will realize they are being held responsible for picking someone who can be commander-in-chief, leader of the free world and beat Clinton.

"And I'm the only one that consistently does it," he said.
