Ohio Gov. John Kasich says that President Barack Obama and the feds should not change the signs on Mt. McKinley because when he’s elected president “we’re changing them back.”
Kasich made the comments in an interview with MLive following a meeting Tuesday with the Lansing Chamber of Commerce in Michigan. You can read Joshua Oosting’s story on Kasich here.
“I’ve been telling them today, don’t change the signs, because when I’m president, we’re changing them back,” Kasich said.
Obama plans to restore the mountain, the highest in the United States, to its original Native American name of Denali.
“I’m 100 percent serious,” Kasich said. “Are they serious about changing the name? Well, I’m serious about keeping the name.”
