Kucinich's brother running in adjacent congressional district

CLEVELAND - Another Kucinich will be on the Democratic primary ballot this May in northeast Ohio.

He's Gary Kucinich, who's running in the nine-way Democratic primary in the 13th Congressional District stretching from Lorain to Akron. Gary Kucinich is the brother of current U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich, the former mayor of Cleveland.

Gary Kucinich, 55, lives in Strongsville and has served on the Cleveland school board and Cleveland city council. Gary predicts that the Kucinich name will help him in the crowded field.

Eight Republicans are running in the GOP primary. The congressional seat is being vacated by Sherrod Brown, who's seeking the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate.
