Ohio’s Kasich, Brown react to Alabama election

Ohio Gov. John Kasich says Republicans in Alabama “chose country over party,” in Tuesday’s Senate election.

Democrat Doug Jones defeated Republican Roy Moore in a narrow win to become the first Democrat in more than 20 years to hold a Senate seat there.

Sexual assault allegations against Moore caused many Republicans, including Kasich, to distance themselves from the GOP candidate.

“Tomorrow we must redouble our efforts to support candidates worthy of the office they seek.” Kasich tweeted.
