Robert F. Kennedy Jr. announced on Tuesday that he has selected Nicole Shanahan to be his vice presidential running mate as he continues to run as an Independent after dropping out of the Democratic Party’s presidential primary late last year.

Shanahan — the ex-wife of Google co-founder Sergey Brin — has a history of donating to Democrat politicians and is the president and founder of an organization that invests in leftist criminal justice policy, environmentalism, abortion access, and more.

RFK made the announcement at a rally in Oakland, California, as he touted her alleged expertise in a variety of fields.

“I managed to find a technologist at the forefront of AI. She has spent the last decade relying on neural networks, artificial intelligence, and cutting edge science to identify abuses in our government,” he said. “She understands that the health of every American is a national security issue and a national security risk. Her work has proven time and again that health drives our economy and it is the foundation of our mental health, our national happiness, our ability to lead the world and innovation and prosperity and at peace. I also wanted someone with an athlete, who could help me inspire Americans to heal, to get them back in shape.”

Kennedy said that it was important to him to find someone with “a spiritual dimension and compassion and idealism.”


“I found all of those qualities in a woman who grew up right here in Oakland,” he said. “The daughter of immigrants, who overcame every daunting obstacle and went on to achieve the highest levels of the American dream. So that is why I’m so proud to introduce to you the next Vice President of the United States, my fellow lawyer, a brilliant scientist, technologist, a fierce warrior mom, Nicole Shanahan.”
