Former U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales endorses Kasich
Former U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales is endorsing Ohio Gov. John Kasich’s presidential campaign.
Gonzales is now the dean of Belmont University’s law school. He introduced Kasich at a rally in Nashville on Saturday as "not someone who’s apologetic about the United States."
Gonzales was White House counsel to President George W. Bush before becoming the nation’s first Hispanic attorney general in 2005. He resigned amid an uproar over allegations of torture of terrorism suspects and controversy over politically motivated firings of U.S. attorneys.
Gonzales acknowledged that Kasich needs to make up ground in the campaign, but says the governor leads the race in "faith and freedom."
