Dennis Kucinich enters crowded race for Ohio governor

Former Cleveland boy-mayor Dennis Kucinich has designated a treasurer for the Ohio Governor's race.

Kucinich, 71, launched his political career almost 50 years ago when he served on the Cleveland City Council and later captured the mayor's office in 1977.

Kucinich served eight terms in Congress before losing to U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur, a fellow Democrat from Toledo, after redistricting.

Mr. Cordray's announcement will come shortly before Republican Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor is expected to announce Cincinnati area business executive Nathan Estruth as her running mate.

Ohio's Republican Gov. John Kasich is term limited. Efforts to reach him Monday were not immediately successful.

Kucinich joins a crowded Democratic primary for the nomination, including Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley, former Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Director Richard Cordray, former Rep. Betty Sutton, state Sen. Joe Schiavoni - have been campaigning for the May 7 primary for months, including holding several party-hosted debates around the state. Kucinich would be a high-profile candidate, but it's uncertain what his chances are on the Democratic ticket. At 71 years old, he has most recently made news as a Fox New contributor and a pal of Syrian butcher Bashar Al-Assad.
