RFK Jr. Gains Arizona, Georgia Ballot Access

Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has secured a spot on the ballots in two crucial swing states, Arizona and Georgia. This achievement was confirmed by American Values 24, the super PAC supporting Kennedy’s bid for the White House. Every additional state’s ballot that Kennedy gains access to is critical for his upstart campaign. The political blue-blood first entered the 2024 race as a Democrat before dropping out of his lifelong party and launching an independent campaign last October.

Kennedy’s campaign strategy is clear: to appear on the ballot in all 50 states and Washington, D.C. So far, he is officially on the ballots in Utah, New Hampshire, and Hawaii, with active efforts to meet requirements in other states. Tony Lyons, co-founder of American Values 24, expressed optimism about the momentum and grassroots energy supporting Kennedy’s candidacy. The super PAC plans to spend between $10 and $15 million to aid in signature-gathering efforts, a testament to their commitment and resources.

American Values 24 co-founder Tony Lyons wrote to supporters in a Monday email: “The grassroots energy and momentum give us more confidence than ever in our ability to knock out the remaining states on our list of states quickly. The remaining states are Michigan, South Carolina, Maryland, California, West Virginia, Indiana, Texas, Illinois, New York, and Massachusetts.”

However, Kennedy’s independent run has stirred controversy, particularly among Democrats. The Democratic National Committee (DNC) has filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission, alleging improper collaboration between Kennedy’s campaign and the super PAC, a charge both parties deny. The DNC’s actions reflect a broader anxiety over Kennedy’s potential to siphon votes from President Joe Biden, thereby aiding former President Donald Trump in a highly anticipated rematch.

Polls from swing states like Arizona and Georgia show a tight race between Biden and Trump. Kennedy’s inclusion in the mix further complicates the electoral landscape. In 2020, Biden narrowly defeated Trump in both states, and their significance cannot be understated in the upcoming election. RealClearPolitics’ polling average suggests that Trump leads when Kennedy is factored in, indicating a possible shift in voter allegiance that could disrupt traditional political alignments.
