In an interview with CNN, Kasich told the anchor Jake Tapper, "If the party can't be fixed, Jake, then I'm not going to be able to support the party".

"I mean, we have to look at his whole record and a number of the things that he said", Kasich said, a possible reference to Moore's comments that homosexuality should be illegal or that Muslims shouldn't be permitted to serve in Congress.

Kasich ran for president past year and became a frequent critic of President Donald Trump throughout the race.

Kasich, who earlier told Tapper he "was raised in a bad luck Democrat family", vows to "fix" the Republican party.

"I don't run the party", Kasich said. I not only want the party to be straightened out, but I want the country to be straightened out.

Kasich continues to be one of the most ardent critics of President Trump in the GOP, but he told Tapper a change in political affiliation to Independent is not being considered.
