Should Dennis Kucinich run for Congress in Washington State?

Dennis Kucinich’s congressional district in Ohio is being dissolved, and Kucinich is apparently considering a run in Washington State. He has been visiting Washington State a lot recently giving speeches.  But State Democratic Party Chair Dwight Pelz is opposed to Kucinich running here. “I am alarmed at the spoiler role Rep. Kucinich could play should he run for office in Washington, such as in the 1st or the new 10th CD.” (source; see also this).

Should Kucinich run for Congress in Washington State and should grassroots Democrats and progressives advocate for Kucinich to run?

Not sure

Yes, Kucinich is great.

No, Kucinich is too far left and/or an unwelcome carpetbagger who would likely lose.
