Kucinich May Switch States to Stay in Congress

How the mighty have fallen. In 2008 Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, was running for president on an anti-Iraq war platform that drew him substantial attention if not votes. Now he’s considering moving to another state to save his seat in Congress, Politico reports.

Ohio is losing two House of Representatives seats starting next year thanks to the latest census, and Kucinich may be redistricted out of his home base in Cleveland.

Kucinich wrote in an email to supporters that he’s been approached by backers from “Washington to Maine.”

Washington is adding a House seat in next year’s elections.

Earlier this month, he spoke to a standing-room-only crowd of almost 800 in Washington. Kucinich said he’s received numerous speaking invitations from labor, environmental, and other political groups.
