Dennis Kucinich Files Ballot Access Petitions for US House Run as an Independent

by | Mar 28, 2024

In January, Dennis Kucinch began his campaign as an independent candidate to return to the United State House of Representatives, seeking to represent an Ohio district that overlaps with the area he represented as a Democrat in the House from 1997 to 2013.

As an independent candidate, Kucinich bypasses the primary and instead is required to submit petition signatures to participate in the November general election. Last week, Kucinich filed petitions signed by over six thousand individuals in order to secure his place on the ballot.

Upon filing the petitions, Kucinich presented a speech that outlined actions he aspires to take as a representative should he win the election. It will come as no surprise to followers of the political activities of Kucinich, who is member of the Advisory Board for the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity, that Kucinich stressed in his speech his commitment to advancing respect for freedom in America and pursuing peace.
