Supporters of John Kasich filled Rocketown in Music City to hear from the candidate for the Republican nomination for president.

The Governor of Ohio took the stage around 11:30 a.m. Saturday.

“I’m going to end up being the nominee. Some people, doubt," Kasich said. "They doubted me my whole lifetime, but we will win Ohio and if you can’t win your home state you got a real problem.”

He had his crowd of supporters cheering from the start when he told them, “We’re sick of this trash!”

When a member of the crowd said he was worried the Republican Party would be “hijacked” and asked if Kasich would consider running for a third party, Kasich replied, “No.”

He also told the crowd our country needs to get back on financial track.

“We need to cut taxes, we need to free up small business to grow, and we need to have fiscal plan that makes sense where we can Uberize the Federal government,” Kasich said.

Kasich also claimed we got Obamacare because Republicans haven't done anything to change it after multiple complaints from the GOP.

Kasich also touched on the topic of climate change, to which he said, “I want to be clear. I respect science.”

He told the crowd he would do everything he could to get jobs going for the American people, and he said we have to remember we are Americans before anything else.

Kasich also spoke about his fellow Republican candidates..

“I’m amazed at the name calling that I’m seeing," he said. "As I said in there, the business of not running on record. It’s fair to talk about someone’s experience and their votes and all that, but we’re trying to pick the president of the United States and I’m comfortable that we’re going to be in a situation where a nominee will emerge. I believe I will be that nominee.”  

The governor made a push for Super Tuesday when he ended his time at Rocketown by saying, “Get out there and vote with your head, vote with your heart."

Voters have been set to head to the polls Tuesday.
