Robert F. Kennedy Jr. to Run As An Independent Candidate In 2024 Elections

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. to Run As An Independent Candidate In 2024 Elections

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has announced that he would be vying as an independent candidate in the forthcoming Presidential elections. 

Speaking to a crowd of supporters outside the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, Mr. Kennedy said he represented “a populist movement that defies left-right division.”

“The Democrats are frightened that I’m going to spoil the election for President Biden, and the Republicans are frightened that I’m going to spoil it for Trump,” he said. “The truth is, they’re both right. My intention is to spoil it for both of them.”

Running as an independent will entail an expensive, uphill battle to get on the ballot in all 50 states. 

In a 45-minute speech on Monday, Mr. Kennedy talked about the tyranny of corruption, his rejection of scientific orthodoxies, and his embrace of far-right political figures.

“Bobby might share the same name as our father, but he does not share the same values, vision or judgment,” four of Mr. Kennedy’s siblings — Rory Kennedy, Kerry Kennedy, Joseph P. Kennedy II, and Kathleen Kennedy Townsend — said in a statement on Monday. “We denounce his candidacy and believe it to be perilous for our country.”

He has built a base of support made up of disaffected voters across the political spectrum, but some Democrats have worried that he poses the biggest threat to their party. 

The battle is still between Trump and Biden because Kennedy’s numbers in the polls have reduced drastically in recent months. 

Mr. Kennedy has raised two main objections about the Democratic National Committee, which is funding Mr. Biden’s re-election endeavor. 

First, he said, Mr. Biden and the party pushed to change the first primary state from New Hampshire — where Mr. Kennedy, who has New England roots, enjoys a base of support — to South Carolina. 

Second, the party has refused to arrange for debates between Mr. Biden and Mr. Kennedy.
