Jack Kevorkian says he plans to run for a suburban Detroit congressional seat.

The assisted suicide advocate who's just out of prison after a murder conviction says he plans to run as independent for the seat held by Republican Joe Knollenberg.

A supporter says Kevorkian plans to focus on prison reform and bringing integrity to the government.

Ex-Michigan Lottery chief Gary Peters is running as a Democrat, and the party has targeted the race as one it has a shot at winning.

Political analyst Craig Ruff says Kevorkian could be like Ralph Nader, taking away enough votes to cost the Democrats the race.
