On March 11, 2004 the San Antonio Current reported that Dennis Kucinich reached out to the Muslim community in San Antonio. "It was appropriate that Kucinich, who has made peace the center of his campaign, should address the Muslim community at the Knights of Columbus Hall, where plates of naan sat on a table below a shrine of the Virgin Mary, and men knelt on rugs for evening prayers. ''We should be united in love; that's the sense of community. We are experiencing this oneness here - a civic openness, an aspiration for peace, an aspiration for security.' Despite earning only 19 confirmed delegates as of the March 2 primaries, Kucinich remains in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination. Although the Ohio congressman's chances of winning are infinitesimal, his opposition to the Patriot Act and calls for peace have prompted many American Muslims to back him as their candidate."
