John Kasich Friday expressed no misgivings about the deal he struck with Ted Cruz to try to thwart Donald Trump's path to the Republican nomination — saying "we did the right thing for ourselves" by not focusing on Indiana and other states.

"It's all about resources," the Ohio governor told Erin Burnett on CNN. "You allocate your resources based on where you think you can do best.

"I have been out-spending this campaign virtually more than anybody," he said, adding that he also campaigned this week in Oregon and California.

"We are most likely headed to an open convention — and when we get there, the day Donald Trump gets there will be his best day," Kasich said.

"From there, he is going to decline because he can't win in the fall."

Kasich and Cruz agreed on Monday to focus on certain states, with the Texas governor devoting much of his attention to Indiana.

The Hoosier State holds its primary on Tuesday. Fifty-seven delegates are at stake.

The governor also dismissed Trump's assertions that the sweepstakes was over if he won Indiana.

"The fact is he better come at exactly the right number, because if he does not, I believe in the second ballot he will decline," he told Burnett. "That is what I believe.

"He has very high negatives. While he may have crossed the threshold on getting the most [number] of votes positively, he also has the most negative votes."
