RFK Jr. hints at special announcement, teases independent run

September 30, 2023

Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. mentioned an upcoming special announcement that some believe could be an independent run.

A video announcement noted the news would be shared on October 9 in what could be a massive shift in the 2024 election.

Hinting at the future

"I'm going to be in Philadelphia on October 9 to make a major announcement at the very birthplace of our nation," Kennedy said in the video announcement released Friday.

"I'm not going to tell you right now exactly what that announcement will be. I can say, though, that if you've been waiting to come to one of my public events, this will be the one to come to," he continued.

This changes everything

"Kennedy’s campaign machine is now planning 'attack ads' against the Democratic National Committee in order to 'pave the way' for his announcement in Philadelphia about running as an independent," according to Mediaite.

“Bobby feels that the DNC is changing the rules to exclude his candidacy so an independent run is the only way to go,” a Kennedy campaign insider told Mediaite.

Stopping Biden

"We’ve been very clear that third parties in close elections can be very dangerous and would almost certainly hurt the president," Libertarian Party chair Angela McArdle said.

"According to RealClearPolitics average of polls between September 7 and 19, Kennedy is around 50 points behind Biden, with BIdne polling at 65 percent and Kennedy at 14.9," the Post Millennial added.

If the current support for Kennedy remained, the difference would certainly stop Biden from winning against former President Donald Trump or any other major Republican presidential candidate.

The change will certainly also force Biden's team to reevaluate whether the president can still win and move forward or even consider stepping down to let another Democrat run.

Kennedy is unlikely to win in 2024 but he has a golden opportunity to determine who will win by deciding to run as an independent.
