Kennedy Submits Signatures To Make Ballot In Pennsylvania


Independent Presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s campaign announced on Friday that it submitted over 9,000 signatures — nearly twice the required amount — to gain ballot access in Pennsylvania.

The amount was nearly twice the required amount of signatures to make the Keystone State ballot. 

Pennsylvania allows for multiple signature turn-ins and volunteers plan to continue to submit more signatures in the coming days.

It reflects burgeoning support for Kennedy in one of the tightest swing states in the presidential election, which President Trump won in 2016, and President Biden won by just 1.3% in 2020.

“We now have a candidate we can vote for who truly cares about us,”  Regional Director Jon Raso said in a statement. “Robert F. Kennedy Jr. will give Pennsylvanians the government accountability they deserve.”

The ticket, in which Kennedy is running with Nicole Shanahan as his Vice Presidential nominee, has now officially made the ballot in eight states - Utah, Michigan, California, Delaware, Oklahoma, Hawaii, Texas, and South Carolina.

Pennsylvania is the 15th state that the Kennedy-Shanahan ticket has now collected enough signatures for ballot access, along with New York, New Jersey, Florida, Minnesota, New Hampshire, Nevada, North Carolina, Idaho, Nebraska, Iowa, Ohio, Tennessee, Washington and Alaska.

These announcements means that the Kennedy-Shanahan campaign has collected the signatures needed for ballot access in 23 states totaling 323 electoral votes - 60 percent of the 538 total electoral votes nationwide.
