This article by Axios founder Mike Allen says that Governor John Kasich of Ohio, a Republican, and Governor John Hickenlooper of Colorado, a Democrat, could conceivably be an independent ticket in 2020 for president and vice-president.
Axios is a new on-line news source. Allen was formerly Politico’s chief White House correspondent.
It would be ironic if Kasich were to become an independent candidate, because no public official has done more to harm ballot access in the last three years than he has. His attorneys in 2014 spent approximately $700,000 to keep the Ohio Libertarian candidate for Governor off the Libertarian primary ballot. They succeeded, and established an Ohio precedent that candidates can be kept off the ballot if their circulators fail to list their employers on the petition forms, even though that had not been policy before 2014.
