WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican candidate John Kasich said on Friday he does not think any Republican presidential contender will win enough state delegates to secure the nomination before the party's convention in July.

"As crazy as this year is, can you think of anything cooler than a convention where we're going to learn about how America works?" Kasich said, referring to the complex rules that would come into play in a brokered convention.

The decision about which candidate to nominate has to be made out in the open, Kasich said.
