(RepublicanWire.org) – Robert F. Kennedy Jr. put President Joe Biden on notice telling a New Hampshire crowd that he is considering running for president in 2024 and challenging President Biden for the Democratic nomination. He said he already spoke to his wife who is on board with Kennedy running against Biden.
“I am thinking about it yes. I have passed the biggest hurdle, that my wife has green lighted it,” Kennedy told a crowd in New Hampshire on Friday.
Kennedy warned Biden that New Hampshire’s “four electoral votes could decide the 2024 election.” “Most importantly, New Hampshire runs the most secure and transparent election in America. It should be a model for our country at a time when we need it most,” Kennedy wrote earlier about Biden and the Dems moving the primary schedule.
Kennedy is the son of the late Sen. Robert F. Kennedy. He is the nephew of the late President John F. Kennedy.
He calls himself a lifelong Democrat. He is married to Hollywood actress Cheryl Hines.
Ted Kennedy primaried Jimmy Carter and a young Kennedy just primaried a sitting Dem Senator so this is not idle talk.
According to ABC:
In January, Kennedy sent an open letter to the DNC, imploring the committee to retain New Hampshire’s first-in-the-nation primary status.
“Like many people, I have spent the past few years thinking deeply about the issues facing America. Our nation is at a crossroads. Next year’s election will be the most important of our lifetimes.
For more than a century, New Hampshire has been fertile ground for the strongest Democratic candidates.
Now, more than ever, it is important that the Democratic Party have a primary campaign that produces our party’s most competitive candidate,” he wrote.
New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley told ABC News that the calendar shuffle, which means the state won’t be an early focus of the party in the primary, does create “an opportunity for any number of [other] individuals to make a national name for themselves.”
“It just gives Republicans a great tool to play mischief by declaring that [Democrat] a front-runner and all sorts of other stuff that Fox News, etc., would love to do,” Buckley said.
