Is Kucinich on the move?

U.S. Rep Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, said this week that because of redistricting, he might run for the House of Representatives in another state.

Population changes have led to the loss of two congressional seats in Ohio. When the state is redistricted, the seat Kucinich currently holds might be eliminated.

"This isn't my choice, though," he said. "It is being forced upon me. What I am not going to do is simply play the role of a victim to redistricting, because I don't look at life that way."
