A 'Fed Up' Kasich Expected to Take Direct Swings at Opponents at Tonight's Debate

Ohio Governor John Kasich is 'fed up' with his Republican opponents' nonsense, he declared Tuesday.

"I've about had it with these people," he said.

Without specifically naming names, Kasich called a number of his opponents' policy proposals 'crazy.'

"We got one candidate that says we ought to abolish Medicaid and Medicare," Kasich said. "You ever heard of anything so crazy as that?" 

Carson.

We got one guy," Kasich said, "who says we ought to take 10 or 11 million people ... we're gonna pick them up and we're gonna take them to the border and scream at them to get out of our country? That's just crazy."

Trump.

The governor said they need to 'grow up' and offer real solutions.

Expect Kasich to bring this new, combative tone to the debate stage tonight in Boulder, Colorado. In the past two debates, the other guys (and gal) seemed to keep their Trump criticism to a minimum. It will be interesting to see if Kasich changes the dynamic with a more aggressive approach.

Coverage begins on CNBC at 6 p.m. with the bottom polling candidates. The top ten take the stage at 8 p.m.
