First Grayson is voted out and now this? Is Ron Paul far behind? The only folks standing up for the people are being eliminated...
One of Congress' highest-profile progressive voices is at risk of losing his House seat following the Census Bureau's announcement of changes to House seat apportionment.
The Census Bureau announced this week that Ohio will lose two of its 18 House seats. Local news sources say that puts Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) at risk of losing the seat he has held for 14 years.
That's because the Ohio General Assembly is now dominated by Republicans, meaning the legislature will likely target Democrat-held districts when the time comes to eliminate two House seats.
Kucinich's 10th congressional district is a prime candidate for elimination because it's located in the Cleveland area, which has lost population, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
WKYC suggests that Kucinich's district could be unified with the neighboring district held by Rep. Betty Sutton, a Democrat, setting up a showdown between two Democrats in 2012.
"I don't have any control over this process, so I'm not going to worry about it," Kucinich, a leading voice against the Iraq war in the House, told the Plain Dealer Monday.
