    Republican presidential candidate Ohio Gov. John Kasich speaks at a campaign event Wednesday, March 23, 2016, in Wauwatosa, Wis.

    The tone of Donald Trump’s campaign seems to be rubbing Ohio Gov. John Kasich the wrong way, especially since it began to focus on the candidates’ wives this week.

    "Families have to be off limits," Kasich said in an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday. "I mean, you cannot get these attacks on families. And if this becomes the order of the day, what kind of people are we going to have in the future that are going to run for public office? There's got to be some rules, and there's got to be something that gets set there. Some decency."

    Kasich also resisted calls to get out of the race. He also told host Chuck Todd he is reviewing whether he could support Trump as the nominee.

    "We're going to look at it every single day, and we'll see what happens. We've got a long way to go,” he said.
