Assisted suicide advocate Jack Kevorkian says his bid for a suburban Detroit congressional seat has given him insight into a political system he says is corrupt.

Kevorkian ran as an independent candidate in Michigan's 9th U.S. House district and got 2.7 percent of the vote.

The winner was Democrat Gary Peters, who upset Republican incumbent Joe Knollenberg.

The 80-year-old Kevorkian says he doesn't plan to seek office again.

He calls for an end to the party system,

Kevorkian ran on an individual rights platform.
