(LibertySociety.com) – Two weeks after filing the proper paperwork with the Federal Election Commission (FEC), Robert F. Kennedy Jr. officially announced his campaign for the 2024 Democratic Primary Election, mounting a challenge against President Joe Biden. He made the announcement in Boston, Massachusetts, at the Park Plaza Hotel on April 19th, 2023. He told the crowd of supporters that during his campaign and time as President of the United States, his goal “will be to end the corrupt merger of state and corporate power,” adding that the relationship is threatening the United States with “a new kind of corporate feudalism.”
Kennedy is an attorney who mostly takes on high-profile cases against pharma companies but is also from a political family. He is the son of Senator Robert F. Kennedy, who was assassinated in 1968, and the nephew of President John F. Kennedy, who was also assassinated in 1963. Two of his family members hold positions within the Biden administration and his brother, Rory, plans to vote for Biden again. Kennedy doesn’t seem to be concerned about the decisions of others in his family, acknowledging that there are no hard feelings.
A 600-person poll was conducted among voters who previously voted for Biden. In the survey, about 67% of people indicated they would vote for Biden again, while Kennedy garnered 14% support. The other Democratic candidate, Marianne Williamson, is polling in the single digits, making Kennedy biggest challenger for Biden so far. On the same day as his announcement, he appeared on Tucker Carlson Tonight, explaining why he decided to run for President, discussing alleged corruption within federal bureaucracies, in addition to the Russia-Ukraine war.
Biden officially announced his reelection on April 25.
