Robert Kennedy Jr. Potential Presidential Run Is Picking up Speed


The son of the late Senator Robert F. Kennedy and nephew of President John F. Kennedy recently announced his wife gave him the green light to run for office.

It appears Kennedy is taking a step further and is now asking for volunteers and donations for a potential presidential run.

Kennedy took to Twitter and tweeted “help me decide whether to run for President. Visit to volunteer or contribute.”

The tweet would continue “If it looks like I can raise the money and mobilize enough people to win, I’ll jump in the race.”

Here’s his full tweet:

Previously Kennedy told a New Hampshire crowd that he was thinking about running.

Check out what WBUR reported:

During a visit to St. Anselm College Friday, environmental activist and vaccine skeptic Robert Kennedy Jr. told a capacity crowd that he’s considering a presidential run.

“I’m thinking about it, and I’ve passed the biggest hurdle, which is my wife has green lighted it,” Kennedy said to cheers after a morning speech at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics.
