Hours After RFK Announces Running Mate

Hours After RFK Announces Running Mate – Top Democrats Make 1 Panicked Phone Call

This week, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. announced his running mate. The former Democrat has continued to maintain support, building momentum in his independent bid for the White House. But he shocked some when he chose Silicon Valley executive and liberal Nicole Shanahan as his running mate.

Some had previously claimed Kennedy was going to take votes away from Donald Trump. But with the selection of a big Democrat donor like Shanahan, it’s clear who he’s gunning for.

And just a few hours after he made his big announcement, Democrats ran for the hills. Top liberals from various states made a panicked phone call. And they are admitting that Joe Biden could be in very big trouble.

From Daily Wire:
A report by Fox News revealed a phone call hosted by key Democratic National Committee (DNC) figures, where the potential threat posed by Kennedy’s candidacy was discussed.

Participants of the call, including Representative Robert Garcia (D-CA), Pennsylvania Lieutenant Governor Austin Davis, and Michigan State Senator Mallory McMorrow, expressed their worries about Kennedy emerging as a “spoiler” candidate detrimental to Biden’s chances of securing a second term.

A group of top DNC figures held a call to discuss how to deal with Kennedy’s campaign. Ironically, had they allowed Kennedy to debate Biden a year ago, he might have already dropped out of the race. Had Kennedy stayed a Democrat, running for the party’s nomination, he might have lost to Biden.

Back then, Democrats refused to acknowledge Kennedy’s campaign—they might have feared old Joe going up against Kennedy in a debate. But now, they are in even bigger trouble. Kennedy is a lifelong liberal and environmental lawyer. He just picked a Silicon Valley star to be his running mate.

Clearly, Kennedy is not going after people who are buying Trump’s “God Bless the U.S.A.” Bibles. He is going after liberals who are sick and tired of the Democrats’ corruption and Biden’s obvious incompetence.

The Daily Wire’s Ben Shapiro explained what Kennedy is trying to do.

From Daily Wire:
That means RFK Jr. is going to be running directly into the Biden campaign apparatus. He’s going to be drawing Democratic votes to himself. That is a genuine threat to Biden. There are a lot of people who are looking at Biden and saying, “I don’t like what I’m seeing here. Maybe RFK Jr. is the moderate. Maybe he’s the ‘not-Biden’ vote.”

Voters who don’t like Biden—but want to avoid Trump—will go for Kennedy. That means, especially in swing states, Biden will have a much lower turnout than expected. Which gives Trump a huge advantage, over a man he’s already beating in many polls.

Key Takeaways:

  • Robert F. Kennedy Jr. chose a liberal Silicon Valley executive to be his running mate.
  • Top DNC leaders made a panicked phone call, worried about RFK taking away Joe Biden’s votes.
  • Kennedy appears to be a bigger threat to Biden’s reelection chances than Trump’s.
