Kucinich overcomes challengers in primary

March 6, 2008


— Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, a two-time presidential candidate, survived a challenge from several Democrats on Tuesday in his Cleveland-based district, becoming one of several incumbents to defeat primary challengers in Ohio and Texas.

Kucinich, whom opponents criticized for spending too much time running quixotic campaigns for the White House, received strong support from local labor unions who backed the incumbent because of his anti-trade positions and longtime support of a single-payer health-care system.

After pulling out of this year's presidential campaign in late January, Kucinich also raised about $850,000 in just a few weeks from donors who had supported his White House bids.

Dennis is the only shred of integrity the Democrats have left.

But I liked the LA Times headline better yesterday:

'Ron Paul lives! So does Elizabeth Kucinich's husband!'

I actually worked as a field organizer for Rep. Kucinich's campaign in Boston in '04 before moving to Kerry's campaign, and he is probably the most sincere politician I have ever met. He is a Jeffersonian-style Democrat. And one hell of a model American.

Keep on fighting the good fight, Dennis.
