On Monday, the Associated Press reported that John Kasich, the Trump-hating former governor of Ohio, is expected to speak at the Democrat Party Convention in support of Joe Biden, citing an anonymous source.
According to the AP:
In the four months since Joe Biden effectively won the Democratic presidential nomination, he has focused on consolidating the party’s divergent and often warring factions. As the closing stretch of the campaign nears, that effort will expand to include Republicans disaffected with President Donald Trump.
Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a Republican and frequent Trump critic, has been approached and is expected to speak at the Democratic National Convention on Biden’s behalf next month, according to a person with direct knowledge of the plans who insisted on anonymity to discuss strategy. Kasich is among a handful of high-profile Republicans likely to become more active in supporting Biden in the fall.
Kasich ran for the White House in 2016 but lost despite being partially funded with George Soros money, and refused to attend the Republican Convention.
“A Kasich spokesman declined comment Monday morning,” Cleveland.com reported.
Democrats, however, aren’t too thrilled about the idea of Kasich speaking at their convention, another article at Cleveland.com said.
While he has every right to support our nominee, the DNC should not allow him to speak at our convention. With the exception of being Anti-Trump, Kasich’s record stands against everything our party supports. His inclusion at the convention would be an affront to our values. (2/2)

Yes, I think we should be willing to work with anyone who wants to defeat Trump, even if our only intersection is "authoritarianism bad." But he is a terrible choice as speaker for the convention. Whether we like it or not, it says to folks that Dems share ideals with Kasich.

When he was governor, John Kasich tried to strip workers of their rights to collectively bargain and signed around 20 bills restricting abortion care in our state. Good endorsement for Biden.
BUT he has NO place on the stage at the DNC.
Nope. Nope. Nope. https://t.co/QV2gzuPtNj

It seems that no one really cares too much for Kasich these days. Poor baby.
Note to John Kasich: Don’t go away mad. Just go away.
