“We see [Kennedy and No Labels] essentially as an arm of the Trump campaign and we intend to treat it as such.” – Pat Dennis (D), president of  American Bridge 21st Century.

So, it seems the Democrats are not exactly thrilled about the prospect of Robert F. Kennedy Jr. gracing the ballot.

Why?

What’s the big deal?

They don’t think RFK Jr will dilute the Dems votes, do they?

I mean, with “81 million” supporters, it should be no problem for Biden.

A new poll from Forbes/HarrisX shows that Kennedy is indeed rising. 38% of undecided are sticking with him.

You see, back in early March, the Kennedy campaign dropped the news they had secure a spot on the voting booths in Nevada.

But then, Cisco Aguilar, the state’s Democratic secretary of state, rejected the campaign’s signatures because there wasn’t a running mate listed.

They’re investigating this and Kennedy is certain he’ll be on the ballot for the 2024 Election.

The American Conservative reports:

The Democrats don’t want Robert F. Kennedy Jr. on the ballot. In early March, the Kennedy campaign announced that volunteers had collected over 15,000 signatures for the candidate’s name to appear in the voting booths of the swing state of Nevada. Later that month, Cisco Aguilar, the state’s Democratic secretary of state, threw cold water on the campaign’s excitement by rejecting the campaign’s signatures for having failed to include a running mate on the candidacy petition.

Kennedy’s campaign staff reacted with frustration, claiming that the “Kennedy campaign intends to depose the Secretary of State to find out exactly which White House or DNC official concocted this scheme.”

The campaign’s ballot access attorney, Paul Rossi, insisted in a press release, “The DNC Goon Squad and their lackeys in the Nevada Secretary of State’s office are outright inventing a new requirement for the petition with zero legal basis.”

Most recently, the campaign announced Friday that it submitted a second round of signatures for a spot on the ballot.

In the middle of a 20-day period during which the campaign announced it had gathered enough signatures in Nevada and Aguilar announced that their petition was insufficient, NBC News reported that the Democratic National Committee had been building a legal and communications infrastructure to weaken third-party candidates. Pat Dennis, president of a Democratic opposition research group called American Bridge 21st Century, told NBC, “We see [Kennedy and No Labels] essentially as an arm of the Trump campaign and we intend to treat it as such.”

 

Turns out he’ll be on all the ballots.

Don’t think we can say that about Biden.

At this rate, I doubt he’ll be on any state’s ballot.
