RFK Jr. Will Be On Ballot In Hawaii

Independent Presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr.'s campaign confirmed on Thursday that they were informed by the Hawaii Office of Elections that he will be on its ballot in November.

Kennedy's supporters collected the 862 required signatures to establish the "We The People" party in Hawaii. They actually supported three times the number of signatures required by today's official deadline.

This means that the We The People party will nominate Kennedy as its nominee in Hawaii. 

"Mahalo to the people of Hawaii who made this great accomplishment possible," Kennedy said in a statement released by his campaign. "I'm inspired by how enthusiastic people are to collect singatures, create new political parties, and rally for real change. This kind of energy is what will get us onto the ballot in every state and fuel our voter registration and GOTV (Get out the vote) operation as we head toward election day."

This is the third state that Kennedy has confirmed he will be on the general election ballot as Hawaii joins Utah, where he's already on the ballot, and he has amassed the necessary signatures to make the ballot in New Hampshire.

The signature gathering effort was led by the "We The People" Hawaii Party Chair Kim Haine, who said in a statement, "Maholo to all the amazing volunteers across our island state who worked so hard to make this happen. We're excited and honored to be a part of this historic campaign to preserve peace, prosperity, and freedom for all. RFK Jr. truly embodies the spirit of aloha, and we know aloha can change the world.

Kennedy visited Hawaii in January and saw the aftermath of the Lahaina wildfire, one of the worst examples of government inefficiency and corruption. Please click here to view the video of his visit. In addition, RFK Jr. held a rally on the island of O'ahu where hundreds of people heard him speak about how he will restore the middle class, unwind the war machine, unravel corporate capture of agencies, end the chronic disease epidemic, and secure the border.

Earlier this month, Kennedy's supporters filed political party paperwork in six states, including Hawaii, as well as California, Delaware, Mississippi, North Carolina, and Texas.

The inspiration for the We The People party, according to his campaign, came from the fact that they "are the first three words of the U.S. Constitution. These words symbolize that our government draws its power from the people that it was created to serve."
