Kucinich, the Muslim vote, CAIR

Democratic hopefull Dennis Kucinich is trying to rally the Muslim vote:

Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, a candidate for Democratic nomination for president, is courting the Muslim vote in Florida this week.

Kucinich appeared before Muslim groups in Miami and Tampa Tuesday urging the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq and condemning the Patriot Act.

"The defining issue for Muslims is the restriction of civil liberties," Kucinich said while visiting the Sligh Avenue Mosque in Tampa.

The visit was organized by local members of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the Tampa Tribune reported Wednesday.
