A spokesman for Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich says he’s not looking to Washington state after losing his primary.

The spokesman says Kucinich would have to resign to establish residency in Washington and he has no plan to do that. The Seattle Times reports the Washington district most often mentioned as a destination for Kucinich was redrawn into a swing district that would be harder for him to win.

There was speculation Kucinich was looking to Washington last year when he made a half-dozen visits to the state.
