My article on Gov. John Kasich of Ohio is in the new National Review.

So why does virtually no presidential buzz surround Ohio’s governor? Kasich’s résumé looks just about perfect for a Republican. He’s the tax-cutting, jobs-growing, pro-life chief executive of a swing state that could represent the difference between victory and defeat for a GOP nominee. He’s also a proven winner. Since his first run for public office in 1978, Kasich never has lost an election — he’s eleven for eleven — and a few of his races have involved tough and scrappy triumphs that lesser candidates might not have pulled off.
