We The People Party Gains Ballot Access in Mississippi, Will Nominate Kennedy

JACKSON, MS—JUNE 17, 2024—The Kennedy campaign today announced the We The People party is officially on the ballot in Mississippi. The party will nominate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. for president and Nicole Shanahan for vice president later this month.

“We look forward to nominating Kennedy and helping get him elected as the next President of the United States,” said We The People Mississippi Chair Melisha Dooley. “We need a leader who will protect what matters most — our children. He’s the breath of fresh air that Mississippi desperately needs.” 

In January, Kennedy supporters filed the necessary paperwork to form the new political party in Mississippi.

“I’m a patriotic soul who has grown frustrated with the political system and our limited options for president,” said Mississippi State Director Leon Giafaglione. “This is the first election year I considered not voting, but then I discovered Mr. Kennedy and firmly believe he’s our last chance to save this great country and regain the world’s respect.”

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 nine states — Utah, Michigan, California, Delaware, Oklahoma, Hawaii, Texas, South Carolina, and now Mississippi. 

It has collected enough signatures for ballot access in 14 other states — New Hampshire, Nevada, North Carolina, Idaho, Nebraska, Iowa, Ohio, New Jersey, New York, Florida, Minnesota, Tennessee, Alaska, and Washington

The Kennedy-Shanahan campaign has collected the signatures needed for ballot access in 23 states, totaling 310 electoral votes, 58% 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. Kennedy is the first independent ever to defeat both major party candidates in head-to-head matchups.
