According to Republican presidential candidate John Kasich, it ain’t over till it’s over, as far as his campaign goes.

Despite only winning his home state of Ohio, Kasich continued to defend his staying in the race as he spoke to voters and host Chris Matthews at an MSNBC town hall in New York Thursday.

Audience member Steve Young confronted Kasich on his “responsibility to voters,” reminding the Ohio governor that his poll numbers don’t seem to indicate a GOP nomination.

“Don’t you think at some point you have a responsibility to voters to recognize the fact that they’re not voting for you,” Young asked, noting that Kasich’s message does not seem to have resonated.

Kasich responded with a jab at the media for painting a chaotic picture of the upcoming Republican convention and added that unlike his rival Donald Trump, he would not throw a tantrum if he loses.

“If I don’t win, I’ll be a gentleman. I’m not going to say that my people are going to walk out,” Kasich said. “It’s important for the people to hear a different message than a message of negativity.”

Young told the presidential hopeful that although he liked his campaign approach, it has not won him the needed support to secure the party’s nomination.

“Your vote is not really where it needs to be and at some point, are you going to recognize that?” he asked. “Because I do think there is some responsibility to democracy.”

Kasich again made the case for his candidacy and staying in the race, quoting famous New York Yankee Yogi Berra, “It ain’t over till it’s over.”
