Robert Kennedy Jr. will run as an independent candidate in the presidential election
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. challenged President Joe Biden for the Democratic presidential nomination, but according to Reuters, he will announce his candidacy as an independent.
Vaccine opponent Kennedy released a video on Friday in which he announced a “big announcement” on October 9.
– I will talk about a turning point in American politics, he says in the video. Moreover, he complains of corruption between Democrats and Republicans.
Kennedy is the nephew of former President John F. Kennedy, who was assassinated in 1963, and the son of former senator and attorney general Robert F. Kennedy, who was murdered in 1968 when he himself ran for president.
In April, Kennedy said he would challenge Biden for the Democratic nomination, but has since complained that the Democratic Party has “merged” with the Biden campaign. Furthermore, he was reportedly not given a fair chance in the nomination process.
In opinion polls, Biden leads Kennedy by a large margin. Former President Donald Trump is the favorite to become the Republican nominee. (NTB)
