Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the son of the former Attorney General Robert Kennedy and nephew of President John F. Kennedy, has announced that he will run for President in 2024. Kennedy, who has been an environmental activist for years, has built a significant following in Democratic circles. He is regarded by many as a strong candidate to win the Democratic nomination due to his name recognition, progressive views, and ability to energize voters.
Kennedy has been a vocal opponent of many of the Trump administration’s policies, particularly on climate change. He has expressed support for the Green New Deal and has been a vocal advocate for renewable energy. He also has a strong record on social justice issues, having served as an attorney for the Children’s Health Defense and fighting for civil rights through his work with the Waterkeeper Alliance.
Despite the advantages that come with his name recognition and strong record on progressive issues, Kennedy will face stiff competition in the 2024 Democratic primary. President Biden is running for re-election as the sitting president. However, as long as Kennedy stays true to his beliefs and continues to build support among the Democratic base, he could emerge as the winner in the race for the Democratic nomination and potentially go toe to toe with whoever the Republicans decide to nominate.
