Former Fox News contributor and Democratic Rep. Dennis Kucinich plans to formally announce his candidacy for governor of OH next week, Fox News has learned exclusively.

The paperwork filed Monday is just the first step in a potential gubernatorial campaign for Kucinich, who would still need to designate a running mate and file petitions to run for office.

Kucinich, 71, launched his political career almost 50 years ago when he served on the Cleveland City Council and later captured the mayor's office in 1977. Kucinich ran twice for the presidency and served eight terms in the U.S. House of Representatives.

The Republican field includes Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine. Efforts to reach him Monday were not immediately successful.

Cordray entered the race last month and Ohio Supreme Court Justice William O'Neill has announced plans to leave the bench this month to also make a run for the Democratic nomination. Kucinich would be a high-profile candidate, but it's uncertain what his chances are on the Democratic ticket.

"This is an opportunity to show how OH needs a change of direction and we think any of our candidates will highlight that", Pepper said.
