Democratic President Joe Biden received shocking news today as 2024 presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. announced his intention to run as an independent candidate in the upcoming election.
Kennedy, who had been a prominent contender in the Democratic primary, revealed his decision to switch to an independent candidacy in an upcoming announcement scheduled for October 9 in Pennsylvania.
The Democratic National Committee (DNC) has faced allegations of suppressing Kennedy’s campaign to ensure a clear path for Joe Biden, who has faced declining popularity.
Kennedy has accused the DNC of altering primary rules to disadvantage his candidacy, prompting his shift to an independent run, as previously reported by Slay News.
According to an insider from Kennedy’s campaign, he believes that the DNC is manipulating the rules to exclude him from the competition, leaving him with no choice but to run as an independent candidate.
In addition to his announcement, Kennedy plans to launch attack ads targeting the DNC’s alleged corruption.
Despite being repeatedly overlooked by the DNC, Kennedy had been Biden’s leading challenger in the Democratic primary, garnering approximately 20% in polling.
If he retains even a portion of this support, it could spell trouble for Biden and potentially secure the election for President Donald Trump.
Many Americans may welcome such an outcome, hoping for a more secure border, economic recovery, and a reduction in the escalating crime rates plaguing the nation.
Prominent Democratic strategist James Carville recently stated:
“Let’s assume the election was November the third of this year.
“The candidates are Joe Biden, the Democrat, Donald Trump, the Republican, Joe Manchin, and Larry Hogan are No Labels, and Cornel West.
“Trump would be a betting favorite.
“If I told you I would give you even money, you would not take that bet.
“So somebody better wake the f**k up.”
Kennedy also hammered Biden on social media today:
“30-year fixed mortgages now over 8%.
“No one can afford to buy now.
“Rents shooting up too.
“Time to implement my plan of tax-free, government-backed 3% mortgage bonds to make homeownership accessible again.”
30-year fixed mortgages now over 8%. No one can afford to buy now. Rents shooting up too. Time to implement my plan of tax-free, government-backed 3% mortgage bonds to make homeownership accessible again. #Kennedy24
