Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Names Dennis Kucinich as Campaign Manager

CLEVELAND, OHIO—MAY 18, 2023—The Presidential campaign of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. announced today that former U.S. Congressman Dennis Kucinich will serve as its campaign manager.

Mr. Kucinich has long been known as one of the foremost progressive voices in American politics. In 1977 he became, at age 31, the mayor of the city of Cleveland and one of the youngest big-city mayors ever. In 1996 he was elected to the House of Representatives, where he served for 16 years.

During his time in Congress, Kucinich led the effort against the Iraq War and the Patriot Act, and served as the chair of the progressive caucus. He competed in the Democratic Presidential primary in 2004 and 2008. He is the author of several books, including the acclaimed “The Division of Light and Power.”

Due to his early opposition to the Iraq War, free trade agreements, and the surveillance state, and his support for huge investments in infrastructure, Mr. Kucinich has earned a reputation as one of America’s most prescient politicians. In 2018 the Washington Post called him “the future of American politics.”

“Dennis Kucinich has brought invaluable electoral experience to our campaign,” said Kennedy. “He knows how the system works from the inside out, and his deep knowledge of issues and his personal integrity are fully aligned with the core values our campaign is bringing to American politics.”
