Dennis Kucinich files papers to run in new 9th District race

Congressman Dennis Kucinich is now officially in the race for the 9th District seat.

Kucinich turned in his papers Wednesday.

He had represented the 10th District, but with the re-districting, it will now be the 9th District.

Kucinich has been a member of the United States House of Representatives since 1997.

Joe Wurzelbacher, better known as Joe the Plumber, is running as a Republican in that district.
