RFK Jr. Teases Independent Presidential Bid

October 2, 2023

Environmental attorney and anti-vaccine activist Robert F. Kennedy Jr. might not pursue the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination after all.

Kennedy plans to make a major announcement regarding his campaign in Philadelphia on Tuesday, October 9, and many media outlets are speculating that he is going to run as an independent as opposed to a Democrat, ensuring he can be on the ballot in the November 2024 general election, according to ABC News.

“A lot of Americans who had previously given up any hope of real change would ever come through the American electoral process have begun to find new hope in my candidacy,” Kennedy said in a video titled “Save the Date. Save the Country.” “I want to tell you now what I’ve come to understand after six months of campaigning: there is a path to victory. The hope we are feeling isn’t some kind of trick in the mind.”

A third-party candidate has not won a state in a presidential since George Wallace of the American Independent Party in the 1968 election.
