Ohio Gov. John Kasich said during a recent presidential primary interview he wouldn’t have signed off on a bill akin to the one in North Carolina restricting transgenders to using the bathroom facilities that correspond to their genders of birth, not choice.

Later in the interview he doubled down on that claim, saying he definitely wouldn’t have signed it.
