RFK Jr. Campaign Says He Made New Mexico Ballot

Santa Fe New Mexican reports:

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. will be on the ballot in New Mexico, his presidential campaign announced Saturday.

His campaign turned in 11,202 signatures about a week ago, more than triple the 3,561, or one-half of 1% of the number of people who voted in the last gubernatorial election, required under state law. On Saturday, his campaign shared a letter from Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver saying he had qualified for the ballot.

“We appreciate Secretary Oliver’s efficiency in certifying the Kennedy-Shanahan ticket in New Mexico,” Kennedy campaign senior counsel Paul Rossi said in a statement. “It’s refreshing for a Secretary of State to avoid the partisan interference on display by election officials in Nevada and North Carolina.”

Earlier this week, Toulouse Oliver’s office went through the petitions of the various independent candidates seeking to make the November ballot. Joining Kennedy on the presidential ballot alongside the Democratic, Republican and Libertarian Party nominees will be Chase Oliver, who is the nominee of the national Libertarian Party. The New Mexico party split with the national one in 2022.
