Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is considering a run for president as a Libertarian, citing difficulties in gaining ballot access as an independent candidate. He has a good relationship with the Libertarian Party and will be addressing their convention in California in February. Kennedy has also met the signature requirements in Utah and New Hampshire, but is still finalizing paperwork. The Libertarian Party has achieved full ballot access in all 50 states in the past two elections, but it is unclear if they have done so for 2024. In an effort to lower the signature threshold, Kennedy’s campaign has created new political parties in six states, including “We the People” in California, Delaware, Hawaii, Mississippi, and North Carolina, and the “Texas Independence Party” in Texas. This has reduced the number of signatures needed nationwide by about 330,000. Kennedy’s campaign is also in regular communication with Libertarian groups and maintains a friendly relationship with the party.
