John Kasich has scheduled a speech in Washington two days after Tuesday's election, a signal the 2016 Republican presidential candidate is charting a path to assert himself as a major political figure in 2020, The Hill reports.

The governor from Ohio is expected to outline his vision on the future of the Republican Party and the country at the American Enterprise Institute, a free enterprise think tank.

Kasich did not vote for Trump despite pledging he would support the Republican nominee, instead writing in Sen. John McCain of Arizona as his presidential pick. His selection didn't count, though, since McCain was not an eligible write-in candidate in Ohio.

The move to put himself out front this early could be to his advantage. Kasich launched his presidential bid in 2015 just two weeks before the first Republican debate and was eventually overwhelmed by the surprising amount of support for Trump.

Kasich, re-elected as Ohio's governor for a second term in 2014, again poked at Trump ahead of the election by tweeting video of a speech he made in April where he said:

"Will we turn our backs on the ideals of America that have seen us through more than two centuries? Or are we going to reaffirm that America is, in Ronald Reagan's words, 'The last best hope of man on earth?'"
