Kucinich returns to Seattle for another event
Friday, July 8, 2011
SEATTLE (AP) -- Ohio Rep. Dennis Kucinich is returning to Seattle to participate in another political event.
Kucinich will join Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jay Inslee and others at a conference for progressive activists Saturday. Kucinich has recently participated in several events around Seattle amid uncertainty about his political future.
The two-time presidential candidate believes his Ohio district will be eliminated as part of redistricting. Kucinich has said he will consider moving to another state but has declined to discuss potential locations. Washington is gaining a congressional seat in the redistricting process.
Dwight Pelz, chairman of the Washington state Democratic Party, has said he does not want Kucinich running for office in the state.
