John Kasich pinned his presidential campaign's future on New Hampshire in a new interview where he said he'd drop out if he struggles during the state's February primary.
"If I get smoked in New Hampshire, then you know kind of the ballgame is over...because then it becomes very hard to raise money," Kasich said during an interview
on WABC Radio's "Election Central with Rita Cosby."
"But I just don't think that's the way it's going to be."
Kasich sits in third place in New Hampshire, according to RealClearPolitics' average of recent polling
, less than 2 points behind Rubio, but 19 behind Trump. He has devoted most of his resources to the early state and has held more events in the state than any other active candidate except Christie, according to New England Cable News' candidate tracker
He also once again ruled out the prospect of running for vice president, flatly telling Cosby, "I'm not interested."
