Former Speaker John Boehner endorsed Governor John Kasich on Saturday.
Boehner resigned in disgrace after failing to represent Republican voters who pushed the GOP into the majority in 2010.
Cincinnati.com reported, via The Last Tradition:
Republicans in Butler County honored former Speaker John Boehner three days before residents across Ohio’s 8th District will vote on his replacement in Congress.
But on Saturday, Boehner was more interested in talking about the presidential race.

One day before Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is scheduled to speak in West Chester, Boehner endorsed Ohio Gov. John Kasich for president.
In fact, the former speaker told a crowded ballroom in the same township he already voted for Kasich.
“He’s my friend,” said Boehner.
It was Boehner’s first public appearance in the area since he retired last year.
