CINCINNATI — Ohio Lt. Gov. and gubernatorial candidate Mary Taylor has reportedly distanced herself from Gov. John Kasich with misleading statements during a recent endorsement interview before fellow Republicans.

Kasich, a 2016 presidential candidate, remains a high-profile detractor of Republican President Donald Trump, which could influence GOP primary voters.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports Taylor told a gathering of Clermont County Republicans last week that Kasich endorsed her GOP rival, Attorney General Mike DeWine. Kasich has endorsed Taylor.

Attendees of the meeting told the newspaper Taylor also said she hasn’t seen Kasich in about a year. Kasich’s spokesman denies the claim.

Taylor’s campaign spokesman says Taylor didn’t lie about Kasich’s endorsement but told the group a Kasich ally leads DeWine’s campaign and that the governor is not actively campaigning for her.
