Kasich gets ready - time to rent more lecterns

By Richard K. Barry

The Cleveland Plain Dealer is reporting that Ohio Gov. John Kasich will "launch a national political committee that would allow him to raise money and his profile as he considers a run for president in 2016."
A source, who spoke to Northeast Ohio Media Group on the condition of anonymity, said the governor's team is "finishing work" and will register the organization soon. Another said the team is hammering out plans for an announcement.

Records show that a nonprofit called New Day for America incorporated this week with the Ohio secretary of state. The name is similar to one Kasich has used for his gubernatorial inaugural committee. The incorporator is listed as E. Mark Braden, an attorney and election-law specialist who has worked for Kasich before and who once served as chief counsel to the Republican National Committee.

According to the story, "New Day for America will operate as a tax-exempt political organization under Section 527 of the Internal Revenue Code," and that "this is not an official declaration of candidacy or a committee that will accept donations for a full-fledged Kasich-for-president campaign."

Yeah, but still.
