(NBC) -

Ohio Gov. John Kasich said he wouldn't vote for either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, and he made that final Monday when he mailed in an absentee ballot writing in Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, for president, spokesman Chris Schrimpf confirmed.

"You want to vote for someone you can support," Schrimpf told NBC News. "He's been clear he can't support Trump. He's been equally clear he can't support Clinton."

Kasich was the last Republican to leave the presidential race, on May 4, before Trump became the presumptive nominee. While he hesitated for months to say anything negative about any of his opponents, he was very critical of Trump by the end of his run. He finally announced that he wouldn't vote for his party's nominee after the controversial "Access Hollywood" tape with Trump speaking about women emerged.
