Dennis Kucinich Rules Out Congressional Run From Washington State
Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich has announced he will not seek a congressional seat from the state of Washington as has been considered. His statement says, in part:
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. My commitments to peace, to workers’ rights and to social and economic justice are constant and are not dependent upon holding an office. They are dependent upon my continuing to stand up, to speak out, to organize, to motivate and to inspire our nation as to its deeper potential. This I promise I will do with great energy and heart.
