Guess What Dennis, It Happens

CNN is reporting that since Ohio isn’t just losing one, but two Congressional Districts in the 2012 redistricting due to the Census, the likeliest targets will be one of the areas around Cleveland — which is losing people in droves because of decades of economic malaise.

Not waiting to see if he is the one who will suddenly find himself in a newly-drawn district competing against another Democrat, liberal firebrand Dennis Kucinch isn’t wasting any time rallying his current constituents for his next race.

The state of Ohio will lose two congressional seats thanks to the latest U.S. Census figures, and liberal stalwart Dennis Kucinich is worried his seat is on the chopping block.

In an e-mail to supporters Wednesday, the seven-term Democratic congressman and two-time presidential candidate says the Republican-controlled Ohio legislature is likely to eliminate his heavily Democratic Cleveland-area district.

But Kucinich says he’s not just going to stand by while that happens.

“I will not wait until a new Ohio map is produced to begin this crucial discussion of the consequences of congressional redistricting,” writes Kucinich. “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.”

He’s also calling on supporters for ideas on how to proceed:

“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? This discussion is consequential. Please participate by providing your insight and advice.”

‘A different kind of election,’ yes Congressman Kucinch, it’s called “A Primary.”
