ABC News reports:
Arnold Schwarzenegger, the movie star and former California governor, endorsed Ohio Gov. John Kasich today for the Republican nomination for president, saying his experience in government made him “an action hero.”
“He kicked some serious butt,” Schwarzenegger said of Kasich, who served in Congress for 18 years. “He was an action hero when he went to Washington.”
Schwarzenegger, a fellow Republican, told hundreds at a botanical garden and conservatory that he first became friends with Kasich in the 1980s, when he was in Ohio hosting his annual “Arnold Sports Festival” body-building and fitness expo. The two have been friends since, and the former “Terminator” star carries out philanthropy work in the Buckeye State, too.
“When he ran for governor, I said to him, ‘I’ll be back,'” Schwarzenegger said.
