RFK Jr. Says He’s A Classical Liberal

April 30, 2024

What is Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s political ideology?

The independent presidential candidate described himself as a “classical liberal” in a message to his campaign email list.

Here is what it said:


In a world quick to label and divide, I stand before you not just as another candidate, but as a voice for authentic change.

Many wonder if I fit on the Right or the Left politically — some call me a conservative, others a liberal.

Let me be clear:  labels do not define my mission. You do!

I am a classic liberal in the truest sense, a Kennedy Democrat committed to restoring America’s foundational virtues of liberty, fairness, and democracy.

Classical liberals stand for health and human rights, the environment, peace, transparency, and the Constitution. We believe in open, civil debate, and that elected officials should represent ALL Americans, not just their own party.

I don’t care what you call me. These are the values I believe in.


Kennedy is an underdog in the race against President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump.
