DescriptionOhio Democratic Rep. Dennis Kucinich emailed supporters Monday with an unusual request: that they vote on whether or not the eight-term congressman should run for Congress in Washington state.

Kucinich lost a primary election against fellow Ohio Democratic Rep. Marcy Kaptur in March after redistricting combined their districts. Last year, when redistricting appeared poised to eliminate his district, Kucinich flirted with the idea of moving to Washington to run in an open district there.

Nonetheless, local Democrats are already coalescing behind candidates who have officially declared campaigns in the state.
