John Kasich is the real "action hero" and would be a better choice for the GOP nomination than Donald Trump, according to Arnold Schwarzenegger, Trump's successor as host of Celebrity Apprentice. The former California governor, who was in Columbus for the Arnold Classic bodybuilding competition, endorsed the Ohio governor at a Sunday afternoon rally in the city, saying Kasich had "kicked serious butt" during his years in Congress, reports the Guardian.

Kasich—who appeared alongside Arnie wearing a "Governator" jacket—has been campaigning hard in his home state ahead of its March 15 winner-take-all primary, CBS News reports. He is currently trailing Trump by a few points in the Ohio polls and says he will probably drop out of the race if he doesn't carry the state. (More John Kasich stories.)
