John Kasich repeats ‘Prince of light and hope’ remarks, Chris Christie says he ‘sounds like Satan’

Ohio Gov. John Kasich spoke to New Hampshire legislators on Wednesday at the Statehouse in Concord, N.H. and made headlines when he referred to himself as the “Prince of light and hope.” New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie fueled the controversy when he hit back, saying Kasich sounds more like “Satan.”

Kasich has used the reference before, but here was stating that his speaking engagement was just another day in the life of the self-described “prince of light and hope” in New Hampshire.

“I learned it’s better to get along than to fight. It’s better to solve problems than spend your time arguing with one another, because what’s the point of service if you don’t achieve anything?” Kasich said to applause during his turn among the candidates to address the 400-member New Hampshire House in the state capitol.

Over the past couple of days, Kasich has repeated the refrain telling talk-show host Hugh Hewitt: “We have a lot of candidates who like the ‘Prince of Darkness.’ I consider myself the ‘Prince of Light and Hope.’ ”

“I’ve heard John called a lot of things — the Prince of Light and Hope has never been one of them,” New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie told Fox News about Kasich’s narcissistic tone. Christie added that the Ohio governor “sounds a heck of a lot more like Satan than the Prince of Light and Hope when he is attacking other candidates.”

Christie accused Kasich of hiding behind his super-PAC, which took an unfavorable view of Christie’s record in a recent mailing.

Wednesday, Kasich was on the receiving end of an anticipated mailing from the super-PAC backing former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.

“You know what this means? They’re getting’ really worried about me,” Kasich told a standing-room-only gathering of just over 150 Wednesday night in a church basement in Gilford.

Some New Hampshire polls show Kasich as high as second, behind Donald Trump.

“I think most people are still undecided,” Kasich told reporters.

“It’s a long process of building, building, building one layer on top of another, and then you get to the point where you get good results. There’s still a long way to go.”
