Ohio Governor John Kasich received two additional endorsements from Mississippi Republicans on Wednesday, a week after former Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott backed his campaign for the presidential nomination.
Rep. Gregg Harper and Andy Taggart, former executive director of the Mississippi Republican Party, endorsed Kasich's effort. Taggart will head up the governor's operations in the Magnolia State, while Harper will serve as a state adviser.
"I am confident that he's fully prepared to be a strong, effective leader for our country because he has proven his ability to tackle difficult issues and win tough elections," Harper said.
"America’s next president must focus a great deal of attention on the national debt, and John Kasich's leadership in Congress and his tenure as governor of Ohio demonstrate his ability to address this issue head on."
