COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Former congressman Dennis Kucinich has filed paperwork with the Ohio Secretary of State to run for Governor of Ohio.

The Cleveland Democrat filed the paperwork Monday, creating a committee for a gubernatorial campaign. It is the first step in running for governor, but not a guarantee that he will do so.

Kucinich served as a U.S. Representative from Ohio from 1997 through 2013. He was also a presidential candidate in 2004 and 2008. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
