Republican Presidential candidate John Kasich drew scorn Monday after a video emerged in which he told an assembled crowd that early in his career, he gleaned support from women who “left their kitchens” to campaign. The comments were made in reference to his 1978 run for state senate, according to a spokesman, and not his current presidential campaign, in which he is running fifth nationally for the Republican nomination, Reuters-Ipsos polling shows. "We just got an army of people who, and many women, who left their kitchens to go out and go door-to-door and to put yard signs up," Kasich says in the footage at an event at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia.
