CINCINNATI (WKRC) - Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a Republican, and Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, a Democrat, are reportedly considering a bipartisan presidential run in 2020.

CNN reports the two governors are considering a "unity" presidential ticket, according to a source involved in the discussions.

The source tells CNN that under this scenario, the two would run as Independents with Kasich as the presidential candidate and Hickenlooper as the vice presidential candidate.

Neither governor has confirmed the discussions and the source says the talks are very preliminary.

The governors are currently working together on major policy issues, such as health care and immigration.

Kasich's 2016 presidential campaign as a Republican was unsuccessful.
