Democratic presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich is leaving the race:
Kucinich said he will not endorse another Democrat in the primary.
Kucinich is seeking a seventh term in Congress, but his long-shot bid for the White House has drawn four Democratic opponents.
In the interview, during which he was seeking the paper’s endorsement of his re-election bid, Kucinich said he is dropping out of the presidential race for practical reasons.
“When I didn’t get into that debate in Nevada, it really made it difficult,” he said.
But Kucinich said he’s proud of his performance in the earlier debates and believes he’s had a positive influence on the race.
Here’s the thing about Dennis. He seems like a really nice guy. I mean that. He seems like someone who would be a really good friend. But his politics are far left, and I have no use for that.
