(Newser) – Perry Kucinich, the 52-year-old youngest brother of Democratic presidential hopeful Dennis, was found dead today in his Cleveland home, the Plain Dealer reports. His body was found face-down this morning by another brother, Larry, the AP and CNN report. Authorities found no evidence of foul play.

Rep. Kucinich is traveling to Ohio to spend time with his family, Politico reports. Kucinich, a six-term congressman from Cleveland, is running for president for the second time in what some consider a “long-shot” campaign; despite a small number of staunch supporters, his fundraising has been weak and his poll showings low. He is recognized for his leftist views.
