As the Super PAC smears on Congressman Dennis Kucinich's campaign stoop to new lows, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has stepped up to the plate. He is endorsing the congressman's campaign and is going to Cleveland on Sunday, March 4 to rally Kucinich's  supporters.

Kucinich (D-OH) said, "Robert is a great leader, and someone who I am proud to say I have worked with for years to create a better world."

Kennedy will join hundreds of other supporters who are traveling to Kucinich's Ohio district right now to help him win this race.
Kucinich says, "We're expecting a close race on Tuesday and every dollar we raise is going to getting our supporters out to the polls...I would not be surprised if this election comes down to a handful of votes.

We are seeing something magical happen on the ground. Our events are filled with energy, our offices are overflowing with volunteers, and our hearts are filled with passion. We have always placed our campaign in the hands of our supporters, not the corporations or big money, and that is what is going to bring us to victory on Tuesday. Let's win this thing!"

Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter, Ani DeFranco, a longtime supporter of Kucinich, said, "Please do all you can to keep Dennis Kucinich in Congress! Vote for him on March 6 if you live in his district; sign up at his website to get engaged and contribute and get your social networks actively fired up sharing your support of Dennis with your friends."
