Larry Durstin offers some speculation at the Cleveland Leader about Dennis Kucinich, an RPI Advisory Board Member, running for Ohio Governor:
Dennis Kucinich: With Ed FitzGerald’s campaign for governor looking weaker by the day, Dennis Kucinich will attempt a “Last Hurrah” run for the Democratic nomination. This makes perfect sense since the old warrior lives to run...Kucinich has won political office in Ohio as a Cleveland City Council Member, Cleveland Mayor, Ohio State Senator, and eight terms Member of the United States House of Representatives.
Also, his lack of concern for the state’s Democratic establishment (and its unwise, hasty backing of Fitz) enables him to buck them with glee. And, truth be told, a Kucinich candidacy is the only possible thing that could make the gubernatorial contest interesting, especially since – barring an Act of God – no one can beat Kasich.
