Democrat Kucinich Drops Out of Presidential Race

Dennis Kucinich is withdrawing his White House bid.

The Ohio congressman said Thursday in an interview with the Cleveland Plain Dealer that he is quitting the race and that a formal announcement will come Friday.

He said he will continue to serve in the House of Representatives and will not endorse another Democrat in the primaries.

Kucinich was the only member of Congress running for president who voted against the war in Iraq. He had won no delegates this campaign season. It was his second run for the White House.
