Ohio Gov. John Kasich hinted Sunday that he is ready to jump into the GOP race for president, saying he’s “very optimistic about where we’re headed.”

Mr. Kasich, a Republican, said his team is “getting closer” to making a firm decision about the 2016 contest and he is soliciting financial support while he tests the waters in key primary states.

“I’m pretty qualified for this kind of a job,” he told ABC’s “This Week,” citing his executive work in a large state and 18 years in Congress.
