Fox News recently hosted former Fox News contributor John Kasich, the current Republican candidate for governor of Ohio, to raise funds for his campaign and criticize President Obama's recent trips to Ohio, complaining that "Obama will have been here eleven times on Sunday night, Biden has been here four times in the last three weeks."
It was Kasich's ninth appearance on Fox News since he announced his candidacy, according to a search of the Nexis database.
Media Matters has documented how Fox News contributors who are also political candidates often use the network to promote their campaigns. Apparently past contributors are no exception.
