|Description||Kucinich still in race |
One by one, all of John Kerry's rivals for the Democratic presidential nomination have fallen by the wayside, except for Dennis Kucinich. The Ohio congressman said in a statement Sunday, a day after his second-place finish to Kerry in Alaska's presidential caucuses, that he intends to campaign through the remaining primaries and caucuses in early June.
"My commitment remains steadfast," he said in a message to supporters. "We must show, as we move towards our convention, that the Democratic Party remains a vibrant party with a capacity for growth. That it remains a party committed to peace. That it remains a party committed to health care for all, to civil liberties, to fair trade," Kucinich said. One of his goals, he said, is to bring more people into the Democratic Party.
Kerry has won 34 of the 37 nominating contests and, before Alaska voted, had more than the 2,162 delegates needed to win the party's presidential nomination at its convention in Boston in July. Kucinich, with about 20 delegates total, has not won any contest.
