John Kasich is not a quitter.

That's the message of a new television ad released in Pennsylvania by New Day for America, a Super PAC supporting the Ohio governor.

"John Kasich was born right here in McKees Rocks, Pennsylvania," the 30-second spot starts, citing a western Pennsylvania town. "The son of a mailman, he's fought for everything he's achieved in life. So when Trump and Cruz whine that Kasich should quit the race, John says: You quit."

Last month, billionaire businessman Donald Trump released his first attack ad against Kasich ahead of the state's primary, criticizing his connections to Wall Street during the collapse of Lehman Brothers; Kasich worked as managing director in its investment banking division for a short period of time. Both Trump and Ted Cruz have said at times that Kasich should leave the race.

The New Day for America ad asserts that Kasich is the only one qualified to beat Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton in a general election.

"We don't quit in Pennsylvania," it concludes.

According to the latest RealClearPolitics average of polling, Kasich earns 20.5 percent of support among Republicans, compared to Trump and Cruz, who earn 39 and 32.3 percent respectively. Pennsylvania's primary is April 26.
