Buzzfeed is reporting that Gov. John Kasich is apparently planning for a possible run for president in 2020. Sources told Buzzfeed that Kasich's private meeting Thursday with national security experts in Columbus "was to help prepare ... for another bid, should he decide to run again."

However, an education think tank is questioning whether that alternative path is acceptable under federal law.
