RFK Jr. Now On Ballot In Two More Swing States

Independent presidential candidate and Biden boogeyman Robert F. Kennedy Jr. qualified for the ballot in swing states Arizona and Georgia. That’s the latest word from the political action committee backing his longshot bid for the Oval Office.

American Values 24 confirmed to Just the News on Tuesday that Kennedy cleared the ballot hurdles in place in the two states. It said the effort to collect enough signatures to put the candidate on more ballots across the U.S. continues.

PAC co-founder Tony Lyons noted Monday that states his organization is still attempting to get Kennedy qualified in include California, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, South Carolina, Texas and West Virginia.

Many in the Biden camp fear the independent moderate will siphon off votes the woefully unpopular incumbent desperately needs.

Securing his spot on the Arizona and Georgia ballots is a big step for the candidate, who began his run for the White House as a Democrat. However, he quickly found himself on the outside looking in as party officials circled the wagons around Biden.

Facing this obstacle, last October Kennedy switched to independent status.

Prior to this announcement, the Democrat sent a letter to party leaders complaining that its ranks “essentially merged into one unit” long before Biden in fact secured the nomination.

His former party is far from happy with his candidacy. The Democratic National Committee recently filed a complaint with the Federal Elections Commission blasting his campaign and the PAC.

The party charged they were illegally carrying out a “ballot access scheme.”

The truth is that Democrats know they have a historically weak incumbent at the top of the ticket. They are further aware that polls show Kennedy siphoning off more votes from Biden than Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee.

And all Democrats need to do is look at the 2020 results in Arizona and Georgia to be reminded of the danger. Both states went to Biden by roughly 0.3%, meaning that any loss of support for the incumbent could be devastating.

The latest RealClearPolitics polling average showed Trump with 39.8% of voter backing compared to 35.5% for Biden when Kennedy is on the ballot. As for the independent candidate, he drew 15%.
