Pat Brady, a co-chair of Governor John Kasich’s presidential campaign, said you have to take Trump out “with a head shot.”
Politico reported:

One of the Illinois co-chairs of Ohio Gov. John Kasich’s presidential campaign is brushing off saying that the only way Trump can be beaten is with a “head shot.”

The comment, by Pat Brady, a former chairman of the Illinois Republican Party, came in an interview with Illinois’s WGN Radio about a week ago after the last Republican presidential debate and was flagged Doug Ibendahl, a known critic of Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner’s administration, which Brady supports.

“If you’re going to take on Donald Trump, you’ve got to take him out with a head shot,” Brady said during the interview.

Brady, asked about the comment after it was flagged by Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, said he didn’t mean it literally.
