The RFK-Curious Women of Bucks County

The Atlantic reports: Everybody loves Lynne. At least, that’s what all of her friends kept telling me last week, as they filed through Lynne’s front door in the Philadelphia suburbs, and sipped chardonnay in her crowded kitchen. When you meet her, you see why. Lynne Kelleher, a 66-year-old Bucks County Realtor, is utterly charming. Her pointed questions take you by surprise, and her impressive range of swear words makes you laugh until you snort. Kelleher’s magnetism is why I reached out to her in the first place. Through her work and the local charity group she founded, she has more friends than she can count. Pennsylvania will again be one of a handful of battleground states that will determine the outcome of the upcoming presidential election, and I’d been searching for women in the area to discuss that with. Kelleher was the ideal person to convene my own personal focus group of educated suburbanites, a crucial segment of the electorate that Joe Biden and Donald Trump are competing for in November. The problem for the two candidates: None of these women likes either of them.

RFK Jr. Speaks Candidly About His Voice

LA Times reports: There was a time before the turn of the millennium when Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. gave a full-throated accounting of himself and the things he cared about. He recalls his voice then as “unusually strong,” so much so that he could fill large auditoriums with his words. No amplification needed. The independent presidential candidate recounts those times somewhat wistfully, telling interviewers that he “can’t stand” the sound of his voice today — sometimes choked, halting and slightly tremulous. The cause of RFK Jr.’s vocal distress? Spasmodic dysphonia, a rare neurological condition, in which an abnormality in the brain’s neural network results in involuntary spasms of the muscles that open or close the vocal cords.

RFK Jr. Secures 2,000 Signatures To Get On The Presidential Ballot In Idaho

USA Today Reports: Robert F. Kennedy Jr., an independent presidential candidate, announced that his campaign had gathered enough signatures to secure his spot on the Idaho ballot, marking his sixth win in nationwide ballot access. Kennedy, who recently announced Nicole Shanahan, a California-based attorney and entrepreneur, as his running mate in his long-shot bid for the White House, gathered over 2,000 signatures in Idaho—twice the number needed for a presidential candidate to secure ballot access in the state.  Just last month, Kennedy's campaign succeeded in its lawsuit against Idaho over what it said was an unconstitutional signature deadline. As a result of the lawsuit, the state legislature passed a bill moving the deadline to August. In addition to the Gem State, he's already collected enough signatures to get on the ballot in Hawaii, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada and Utah.

RFK Jr. Isn’t A Spoiler, But He Could Be A Winner

Herald.Net Reports: At a time when Democrats dismiss MAGA voters as gullible and angry and Republicans see progressives as enemies of law and order, independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has called for comity. “We need to start listening to each other, even when it’s difficult,” Kennedy told supporters Tuesday. “We need to sift through the anger,” Kennedy added. The occasion was Kennedy’s announcement that his running mate would be Nicole Shanahan, a patent attorney and philanthropist who once was married to Google co-founder Sergey Brin. So she has deep pockets. Kennedy, 70, boasted that he chose Shanahan, 38, because she breaks the mold. She is young. She has never run for office. She shares Kennedy’s skepticism about covid lockdowns and vaccines. Like Kennedy, she’s a surfer. Both former Democrats claim that they didn’t leave the party; the Democratic Party left them.

More than 23,000 signatures were collected through the new political party "We The People," officials with the campaign said. "We The People" was formed in January by supporters of Kennedy to get him on the ballot in six states, including North Carolina — a crucial battleground.

RFK Jr. Is Poised To Be A Chaos Factor In November

CNN Reports: In a normal presidential election year, an anti-system third-party candidate like Robert F. Kennedy Jr. would not be polling at nearly 10% at this point in the cycle. But this is not a normal year. This is an election year ripe for an anti-establishment candidate to create significant uncertainty — and potentially stir some even bigger changes to the US party system. With the announcement of his running mate, Silicon Valley attorney and entrepreneur Nicole Shanahan, Kennedy’s campaign will expand its ballot access. Assuming President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump officially receive the party nominations they have now clinched, the stage is set for a general election that could have the lowest combined approval rating for major party candidates ever (or at least in the history of polling). Both Biden and Trump have approval ratings stuck in the 40s, where they have been for years. It has echoes of 2016 when former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Trump broke records for the highest unfavorability ratings of any two candidates on Election Day. On the surface, this double dislike seems puzzling: Shouldn’t one of the two parties have figured out how to elevate a more popular general election candidate? Perhaps. But something else is weird about this moment. In a December 2023 Gallup poll, not a single top US government official tested had a job approval rating over 50% — and Kennedy bucks this trend. Kennedy is the only presidential candidate with a net favorable rating.

Biden And Trump Know Kennedy’s VP Choice Is A Game Changer

The Hill Reports: There is nothing remotely normal or conventional about this presidential election. Alice in Wonderland would feel right at home bouncing about between the fantastical issues plaguing the Biden and Trump campaigns. For the current president, voters worry about Biden’s age, perceived cognitive issues, his son Hunter’s legal and perception problems, growing policy failures, and a country and world going more sideways by the day. For the previous president, it’s hard for some voters to unsee the FBI raid on Trump’s home in Florida, his mug shot, multiple indictments by Democratic prosecutors and district attorneys, trial dates and the greater “lawfare” campaign being purposefully amplified by some in the media.  With that as background, it is no surprise that approximately 70 percent of voters indicate they do not want Biden or Trump as their next president. Enter — stage middle — Robert F. Kennedy Jr.  RFK Jr. has a higher favorability rating than both Biden and Trump. He is also the favorite of voters under 35 years old, as well as independents, and is gaining rapidly among minorities — three constituencies that Kennedy now has a chance to grow substantially thanks to his selection yesterday of Nicole Shanahan as his running mate. The 38-year-old Shanahan has a remarkable life story. She grew up on welfare, is Asian American, a lawyer, the California-based founder and president of Bia-Echo Foundation — a nonprofit that issues grants for issues including reproductive rights, equality, criminal justice reform and the environment — is a single mother to a daughter with autism and is the former wife of Google cofounder Sergey Brin.

Nicole Shanahan Tells Newsweek Why She's Running With RFK Jr.

Newsweek Reports: Nicole Shanahan, a patent attorney specializing in technology and the former wife of Google founder Sergey Brin, has been named Robert F. Kennedy Jr's. vice presidential running mate. "I want somebody who will look out for young people and not treat them as if they're invisible," Kennedy said in an interview with Newsweek. "She's just 38 years old; she comes from technology and understands social media." Kennedy made the announcement Tuesday at an event in Oakland, where Shanahan grew up in poverty with her mother, who emigrated from China, and her father, who had a substance abuse problem and suffered from mental disorders. Shanahan, a lifelong Democrat, told Newsweek she has grown disillusioned with the party over what she sees as a lack of progress on environmental issues and children's health, and because it has helped to rack up a $34 trillion national debt and has no strategy to secure the southern border.

RFK, Jr. Names Tech Lawyer Nicole Shanahan As Vice-Presidential Pick

The Washington Post Reports: Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. announced Tuesday that tech lawyer and megadonor Nicole Shanahan would join his independent presidential ticket as his running mate, a move that would provide Kennedy with more ballot access as he pursues his long-shot bid for the White House. Kennedy, 70, announced his pick in her California hometown, miles from the hub of the technology industry. Shanahan, 38, has grown to prominence as a Bay Area lawyer with deep Silicon Valley ties and was previously married to billionaire Google co-founder Sergey Brin. “I need someone with a spiritual dimension and compassion and idealism and, above all, a deep love for the United States of America,” Kennedy said. “I found all of those qualities in a woman who grew up right here in Oakland, daughter of immigrants who overcame every daunting obstacle and went on to achieve the highest ideals of the American Dream.” Read the full article here.   If you resonate with this message please subscribe to our newsletter to learn more.
