Dennis Kucinich Takes A First Step Towards Running for Ohio Governor

Dennis Kucinich enters crowded race for Ohio governor
Former Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) is throwing his hat into the ring for OH governor, joining six other Democrats vying for the seat.
Kucinich, a former congressman from the state and contributor for Fox News, is the seventh Democrat to enter the race to replace term-limited Ohio Gov. Having served in the United States House of Representatives and having run for President twice, Kucinich has state and national name recognition.
Kucinich, 71, launched his political career almost 50 years ago when he served on the Cleveland City Council and later captured the mayor's office in 1977.
The Republican field includes Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine.
Joining the chorus of gubernatorial candidates selecting their would-be lieutenant governors this week, Democrat Richard Cordray will announce his pick in Akron on Wednesday.
Kucinich lost the congressional seat he first won in 1996 in 2012, following redistricting that put two Democratic incumbents in the same district. Efforts to reach him Monday were not immediately successful. Kucinich would be a high-profile candidate, but it's uncertain what his chances are on the Democratic ticket. He said Kucinich did not formally approach him about running, but that he explained the vetting process to him when they saw each other recently.
