NEW YORK (AP) — Former Democratic presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich has signed on as a regular contributor to Fox News Channel.

The former Ohio congressman unsuccessfully ran for president in 2004 and 2008, and recently ended his congressional career. Fox said Wednesday that Kucinich will make his debut in his new role on “The O’Reilly Factor” on Thursday night.

Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes said he’s always been impressed with Kucinich’s fearlessness and thoughtfulness on the issues.

Kucinich, who was elected mayor of Cleveland at age 31, said Fox has always provided him with a chance to offer his perspective.
