KUCINICH FOR PRESIDENT 2008, Inc.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Tuesday, January 01, 2008
DES MOINES, IA - Democratic Presidential candidate and Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich opened the New Year by publicly asking his Iowa supporters to vote for him in the caucuses this Thursday, and suggesting that if he did not make the 15% threshold, their second ballot should be for Senator Barack Obama. "This is obviously an 'Iowa-only' recommendation, as Sen. Obama and I are competing in the New Hampshire primary next Tuesday where I want to be the first choice of New Hampshire voters.
"I hope Iowans will caucus for me as their first choice this Thursday,
because of my singular positions on the war, on health care, and trade.
This is an opportunity for people to stand up for themselves. But
in those caucus locations where my support doesn't reach the necessary
threshold, I strongly encourage all of my supporters to make Barack Obama
their second choice. Sen. Obama and I have one thing in common: Change."
