Kennedy Submits Signatures to Gain Ballot Access in Swing State Pennsylvania

HARRISBURG, PA—JUNE 21, 2024—The Kennedy campaign today announced it has submitted more than 9,000 signatures — nearly twice the required amount — to gain ballot access in Pennsylvania. The Keystone State is one of the most highly contested swing states in the presidential election, having gone to President Biden by just 1.3% in 2020.

“We now have a candidate we can vote for who truly cares about us,” said Northeast Regional Director Jon Raso. “Robert F. Kennedy Jr. will give Pennsylvanians the government accountability they deserve.”

Pennsylvania allows for multiple signature turn-ins and volunteers plan to continue to submit more signatures in the coming days.

The campaign’s aggressive ballot access operation has surpassed all its milestones to ensure the Kennedy-Shanahan ticket is on the ballot in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The ballot access operation is fully funded with more than $15 million raised.

The Kennedy-Shanahan ticket is officially on the ballot in eight states — Utah, Michigan, California, Delaware, Oklahoma, Hawaii, Texas, and South Carolina

It has collected enough signatures for ballot access in 15 other states — New Hampshire, Nevada, North Carolina, Idaho, Nebraska, Iowa, Ohio, New Jersey, New York, Florida, Minnesota, Tennessee, Alaska, Washington, and now Pennsylvania

The Kennedy-Shanahan campaign has collected the signatures needed for ballot access in 23 states, totaling 323 electoral votes, 60% of the 538 total electoral votes nationwide.

On May 1, the Kennedy campaign released results from a Zogby poll showing Kennedy beats both Presidents Biden and Trump in head-to-head matchups. Trump defeats Biden handily. Kennedy beats President Trump in a two-way race, by a tight margin. In a two-way race between Kennedy and President Biden, Kennedy wins in a landslide.
