Posted Wednesday, October 1, 2008

Even while lawmakers are focused on a financial crisis, the business of electing new lawmakers continues. Democrat Dennis Kucinich faced one of the toughest primaries of his career this year, and now, he faces former state lawmaker Jim Trakas. Trakas says Kucinich has a bizarre political agenda, too far to the left of most Ohioans. Kucinich maintains his views are representative of the mainstream. On The Sound of Ideas®, you get to decide. Join us for a special candidates' forum at 9 am, on 90.3.
