While many Ohio Democrats are up in arms over a GOP-drawn congressional map, at least one, Rep. Dennis Kucinich, is a fan -- to the point that he's robocalling to lobby for it. The Cleveland Plain Dealer:
Over the weekend, Kucinich's campaign placed robo-calls that asked voters to urge state legislators including Lakewood's Nickie Antonio and Cleveland's Mike Foley to back a map that would include a congressional district based in western Cuyahoga County, which Kucinich currently represents.
Kucinich told Antonio the GOP-drawn plan that Ohio's Democratic Party wants to overturn, which would place him in a district with Toledo's Marcy Kaptur, would be winnable for him.
Antonio said that several constituents who got Kucinich's robo-call contacted her office and suggested she support the GOP redistricting map, which she and Foley both opposed.
