Brian Brown, president of the National Organization for Marriage (NOM), this week attacked Ohio Governor John Kasich's opposition to marriage equality.

While the GOP presidential candidate last week won Ohio, he cannot win a majority of delegate prior to the Republican convention, which will take place in Cleveland.

Brown, whose organization has endorsed the presidential ambitions of Ted Cruz, pleaded with supporters for money to go after Kasich, whom Brown described as a spoiler.

“Since he cannot win the race outright, what is Kasich trying to accomplish?” Brown rhetorically asked. “Well, he apparently thinks that by finishing fourth (he trails Rubio in delegates) the GOP power brokers will hand him the Republican nomination if either Trump or Cruz themselves do not have a majority of delegates. Imagine that – the fourth place candidate thinks he is entitled to the Republican nomination!”

“Failing that, Kasich also presumably figures that his delegates give him bargaining power to cut a deal with either Cruz or Trump in exchange for something for himself. Whether he's angling to be the vice presidential pick or play some other role in a GOP administration is not known.”

“If you liked John Boehner, you'll like John Kasich – lot's [sic] of talk but no guts to actually fight for conservative principles like preserving marriage. … That is why NOM is committed to ensuring that the American people learn the truth about Kasich and make him toxic as a potential vice presidential pick.”

Brown went on to claim that a Kasich administration would not protect opponents of marriage equality.

“Here's a classic example of what we'd get with John Kasich: he says that he personally believes in traditional marriage and that he didn't agree with the Supreme Court's decision to redefine marriage, but since then he says 'he's moved on,' that it's time to for the nation to accept it and that he had a great time attending a gay 'wedding' himself. And Kasich believes that someone who does not want to be involved in providing services to a same-sex 'wedding' should be forced to do so against their religious beliefs if they want to be in business. 'We're not going to allow discrimination,' he promised,” Brown said.

However, during a recent GOP debate, Kasich said the opposite: “At the end of the day, if somebody is being pressured to participate in something that is against their deeply-held religious beliefs, then we're going to have to think about dealing with a law.”

“John Kasich would do nothing to help … anyone … who is forced to give up their constitutional rights when it comes to gay 'marriage,'” Brown added, before asking for a donation.
