Stan Druckenmiller, the money manager who boasts one of the best investor track records over the past three decades, is supporting John Kasich for president, saying the Ohio governor is the best Republican to take on Democrat Hillary Clinton.

“Kasich has been my favorite all along,” the billionaire said Monday in an e-mail, saying that the governor does better than Republican Senator Marco Rubio against Ms. Clinton in polls. “The perception that Rubio is the most electable Republican is misguided.”

Republican Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor, announced the suspension of his presidential campaign following Saturday's Republican South Carolina primary results.
