John Kasich told a female college student in upstate New York Friday that one way she — and other "co-eds" — could avoid being sexually assaulted on campus was by not going "to parties where there's a lot of alcohol."

"In our state, we think that when you enroll, you ought to absolutely know that if something happens to you along the lines of sexual harassment or whatever, you have a place to go," the Ohio governor said at a town hall in Watertown, N.Y., according to video supplied by CNN.

Kasich, 63, mentioned several programs begun on his watch in the Buckeye State.

"Where there is, say, confidential reporting," he began. "Where there is an ability for you to access a rape kit — where that is kept confidential.

"But where it gives you the opportunity to be able to pursue justice after you have had some time to reflect on it all," Kasich said. "This ought to be done in the country such that our co-eds know exactly what the rules are, what the opportunities are, what the confidential policies are, so that you're not vulnerable, at risk and can be preyed upon.

"I have two 16-year-old daughters," the candidate said. "And I don't even like to think about it."

Kasich then ended by saying: "I'll also give you one bit of advice: Don't go to parties where there's a lot of alcohol, okay?"
