Donald Trump's campaign manager Paul Manafort accused Ohio Governor John Kasich of "acting petulant and being an embarrassment to his party" for refusing to support Trump following his defeat in the Republican Presidential nominating process. When asked if he would be speaking at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland Kasich said it was unlikely to happen, but wished Trump well. Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf will be welcoming delegates in Philadelphia next week for the Democratic National Convention.
