ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Republican presidential candidate John Kasich says he got elected to the legislature at 26 years of age, in part, by "many women who left their kitchens to go out and go door to door." The Ohio governor told the crowd at a town hall in Fairfax, Virginia, that he started campaigning with very little support and that "things were different." "How did I get elected? Nobody was- I didn't have anybody for me. We just got an army of people who- and many women who left their kitchens to go out and go door to door and to put yard signs up for me all the way back..." said Kasich. A woman later stood up during the Q&A portion and said, "I'll come to support you but I won't be coming out of the kitchen." The Ohio governor, who is vowing to erase the U.S. budget deficit without shredding the safety net for poor Americans, has built a base of support among moderate Republicans and independent voters. Kasich has also said the United States should secure its borders but that illegal immigrants who have not committed a crime should be able to pay back taxes and get on a path to legalization.
