Bruce Lisman, one of two Republicans running for governor in Vermont, is backing Ohio Gov. John Kasich for president in Tuesday's primary election.

“I’m supporting Gov. John Kasich because he is a competent manager who has helped to revitalize his state’s economy, while bringing both Democrats and Republicans together,” Lisman said in a statement to Seven Days on Saturday.

Kasich, who was planning his third Vermont visit of the campaign Monday, is trailing significantly in what has become a five-candidate Republican race as it heads into Super Tuesday.

Lisman did not attend Kasich’s Colchester rally February 20, where Lt. Gov. Phil Scott, his rival in the race for the Republican nomination for governor, introduced the candidate. Scott did not endorse Kasich, and days later said he decided he’ll be voting for Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), declaring Rubio offered the best hope of pulling the party together.
