Republican presidential hopeful John Kasich on Sunday compared primary rival Donald Trump’s gripes over the GOP nominating process to those of a whiny schoolboy complaining about a math test.

Asked whether he agreed with Mr. Trump’s assessment that the primary race is “rigged,” Mr. Kasich said “it’s the way it works.”

“You know, it’s like saying I made an 83 on my math test, so I should get an A just because I think it’s rigged that you need to make a 90 to get an A,” Mr. Kasich said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “I mean, come on. Act like, you know, you’re a professional. Be a pro.”

Pointing to Colorado’s system, in which delegates were elected at local caucuses and then competed for 34 slots at the state convention on April 9, Mr. Trump alleged that the democratic process had been usurped.

“Delegates are supposed to reflect the decisions of voters, but the system is being rigged by party operatives with ‘double-agent’ delegates who reject the decision of voters,” Mr. Trump wrote in a Wall Street Journal op-ed last week.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz won all of Colorado’s 34 delegates.
