CLEVELAND - U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich late Tuesday night conceded his loss to U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur during a three-way Democratic battle for the newly drawn 9th Congressional District.

Mr. Kucinich returned to a Cleveland restaurant to announce he had lost, again thank supporters, but also had harsh words for Miss Kaptur of Toledo.

"I would like to be able to congratulate Congresswoman Kaptur but I do have to say that she ran a media campaign in the Cleveland media market that was utterly lacking in integrity with false statements half truths, [and] misrepresentations," he said. "I hope that is not the kind of representation she would provide to this community. And I don't think the people of Toledo have any idea of the kind of campaign that was run up in the Cleveland area."
