Boston Globe endorses Ohio's John Kasich

Ohio governor John Kasich got a big endorsement tonight when Boston Globe editors recommended a vote for him in the New Hampshire primary:

New Hampshire Republicans can do their party a critical service on Feb. 9 by voting for an experienced political figure with a record of results, and thus dealing a blow to the divisive, demagogic candidates running on nativism and other political simplicities.

Kasich was re-elected to the governor's seat in 2014 and is polling at 12 percent in New Hampshire, well behind Donald Trump's 32 points. Ted Cruz is polling at 12.8 percent.

New Hampshire will be the second primary election Feb. 9, after the Iowa caucus on Feb. 1.
