Washington: Dennis Kucinich Won’t Run Here — or Anywhere Else

Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) will not seek a House seat in Washington state this year after losing a primary to a fellow Democratic Member in March.

In an email to his supporters, Kucinich thanked the “tens of thousands of concerned Citizens for Kucinich who in the past few months have written, emailed and called to discuss my running for Congress in Washington State.”

“After careful consideration and discussions with Elizabeth and my closest friends, I have decided that, at this time, I can best serve from outside the Congress,” he continued.

After he lost the primary to Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D) in northern Ohio’s 9th district, Kucinich traveled to Washington state for an eventpolled supporters on his website about where he should run and told a progressive media outlet that he would “find a way back into public service.”
