John Kasich Came in Fourth in Arizona

Poor Gov. John Kasich. He can't catch a break.

In Arizona's Republican primary, Kasich actually found himself in fourth place, despite there only being three Republican candidates remaining in the race. Arizona allows early voting nearly a month before the actual election day. Thus, a whole lot of people voted for Marco Rubio before he suspended his campaign last Tuesday--enough to propel him to a third-place finish. Rubio received nearly 23,000 more votes than Kasich.

This, of course, begs the question: why is Kasich still in the race?
