MANCHESTER – U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich, an Ohio Democrat running for his party's Presidential nomination, focused yesterday on the nation's health-care system and the war in Iraq as he wrapped up his third campaign trip to New Hampshire.

Kucinich , received just 1 percent of the vote in the 2004 New Hampshire primary. This time around, though, he is doing things differently. He has been traveling early and often to the Granite State, and has been more aggressive in differentiating his views from those of the race's front-runners.

"My candidacy challenges the Democratic Party and gives the people of New Hampshire someone to vote for who doesn't have any strings attached," said Kucinich, who yesterday morning spoke to a small group of supporters at the Merrimack Restaurant on Elm Street.

Kucinich, a former mayor of Cleveland, touched on other issues during breakfast, such as calling for incentives to boost production of wind- and solar-energy technology, and pushing for full employment in the economy.
