Dennis Kucinich Could See Congressional District Eliminated


As Rep. Dennis Kucinich relayed to Jessica Yellin on CNN, he's not waiting for his the GOP in Ohio to redraw their congressional districts before warning his supporters that we're likely to see his eliminated.

Kucinich To Supporters: Where Will I Run If My District Is Eliminated?:

As a result of the post-Census reapportionment, Ohio has lost two House seats, going down from 18 districts to 16. And as such, it's widely believed that Kucinich's seat could be chopped up -- ironically, Kucinich's political real estate could be redistributed among his neighbors by Ohio's Republican legislators. As he writes in an e-mail to his supporters:

I will not wait until the Ohio Legislature produces a new map to start thinking of the options. The question will not be: Who is my opponent? The question will be: Where is my district? Seriously.

We are going to have to prepare for a different kind of election, possibly in a different place because my district may be eliminated. We are going to have to organize in a different way, now. The question will remain: Where?
