Kucinich Withdraws From Race
By Garance Franke-Ruta
A day after issuing an "urgent personal appeal" for donations to fight a tough primary battle against four challengers, Cleveland, Ohio, Rep. Dennis Kucinich announced this afternoon that he plans to end his quixotic bid for the Democratic presidential nomination.
Kucinich's campaign released a statement that he will begin "transitioning out of the Democratic Presidential primary race" tomorrow, when he makes a formal announcement in Cleveland.
"I want to continue to serve in Congress," the six-term congressman told the Cleveland Plain Dealer this afternoon. "There is a point at which you just realize that you, look, you accept it, that it isn't going to happen and you move on."
Kucinich's presidential quest has become a campaign issue in his Cleveland district, which his opponents charge him with neglecting.
