WASHINGTON (AP) -- Rep. Dennis Kucinich has been shopping around for a new congressional district as it appears increasingly likely that he will be drawn out of his Ohio district. And he may have found a new one -- in a state thousands of miles away.

The two-time Democratic presidential candidate with a progressive following has visited Washington state for several political events in recent months, including a recent appearance at a Seattle conference for progressive activists where his call to bring home U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan won applause.

The eight-term congressman said he hopes to make more visits in the coming months, whether Democrats in Washington welcome him or not.
