President Donald Trump and other GOP candidates are mulling post-Games post-Debate career opportunities for their party’s ticket, with a focus on their roles as governors.
“We’re going to see a lot of governors getting their own reality shows and doing their own thing,” said one GOP strategist, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations.
“And it’s not a good time for a lot people.”
Trump and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, a top contender for the GOP nomination, are both expected to be mentioned in the future as governors, the strategist said.

“It’s going to happen,” Kasich told Fox News’ “Fox and Friends” this month.
“But it’s going, you know, it’s kind of hard to say when it’s coming.”
Kasich also said he doesn’t believe he would be running for president again, and that the next Republican president needs to do more to fight climate change.
“When we talk about climate change, I don’t think you have to talk about me.
It’s important that we are not talking about climate.
It has to be talked about.
It can’t just be said,” Kasich said.
But he said the issue should be addressed by a future president.
“That’s one of the things that has to happen. I don
