Kennedy Campaign: 10 States Not in Compliance With Delegate Selection Rules

WASHINGTON, DC—SEPT. 11, 2023—The campaign of Democratic Presidential Candidate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. today released a list of 10 states that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) has failed to bring into compliance with their own published rules on delegate selection for the 2024 Primary Election season.

The report cited Arizona, Alabama, Arkansas, Connecticut, Idaho, Kansas, Massachusetts, Nebraska, Vermont, and Washington as well as that of Democrats abroad as being out of compliance.

"They are missing the deadline on announcing that there is going to be a primary election,” said Dennis J. Kucinich, Kennedy's campaign manager.

“This is an obvious form of voter suppression. And it comes not from the states, but from the DNC itself, which has constructed an almost impenetrable Chinese wall of contradictory entrances and exits regarding the delegate process. The DNC is creating confusion to increase its control over the states, and to draw attention away from the primary itself — exactly as if there is to be no primary at all. Alabama, Washington State, and Democrats Abroad have also failed to make their specific petition forms available, as required. This means that the collection of signatures to attain ballot status cannot yet occur.”

“These are not mere oversights. This is a further indication of the DNC’s efforts to rig the 2024 nomination by letting chaos reign in the delegate selection process,” Kucinich added.

Kucinich said he has sought a meeting with the DNC Chair, Jaime Harrison, on behalf of the campaign, in advance of Thursday’s DNC meeting in Washington D.C. At this time no response has been received.
