http://www.americanchronicle.com/articles/52064On issue after issue Kucinich pushed against the Democratic Party leadership – now, it seems he is paying a price.
In Cleveland, Kucinich is being challenged by several candidates. The one that is getting the most attention and funding is City Councilman Joe Cimperman. He´s served on the council for ten years and has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars from real estate interests to challenge Kucinich. He´s been saying that Kucinich focuses too much on campaigning for president and not on the district. The Mayor of Cleveland and the Cleveland Plain Dealer has endorsed Cimperman.
Kucinich, who has been focused on the presidential campaign, has very little money in the bank (reportedly only about $30,000).
