CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

In just a few weeks Governor Kasich could be announcing his run for the oval office, that's according to a close source to the governor. FOX19 took to the streets to see what some Ohioans thought of the possible candidacy.

“I think he probably have a better chance, than a lot of people out there,” said possible supporter Narien Flowers.

“It seem like he would lead us in the right direction,” said supporter Ricky Merritt.

Kasich has eyed the presidency before in 2000. The buzz of the possibility is making some political groups happy.

“Ohio is excited about his prospect. There's not a front runner right now running for president. Governor Bush has had a rough week. So there is a clear opening for John Kasich to run for president,” said Hamilton County Republican Chairman Alex Triantafilou.

FOX19 asked Triantafilou would Kasich stand a chance with a front runner like Democratic hopeful Hillary Clinton, who's no stranger to the White House.

“Absolutely, he has a chance. He been an executive of a large and critical state. He's had great success here. He's brought this state back from a deficit,” Triantafilou.

Winning or losing is still a long road ahead, right now many are waiting for an official announcement.
