Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has secured a spot on the ballots in Arizona and Georgia, according to the political action committee backing his White House bid.

A spokesman for American Values 24 confirmed to Just The News on Tuesday that Kennedy reached the ballot requirements for the two battleground states as it continues gathering signatures for the candidate to appear on ballots across the country.

“The grassroots energy and momentum give us more confidence than ever in our ability to knock out the remaining states on our list of states quickly,” Tony Lyons, the co-founder of American Values 24, wrote in an email sent on Monday. “The remaining states are Michigan, South Carolina, Maryland, California, West Virginia, Indiana, Texas, Illinois, New York, and Massachusetts.”

Getting on the Arizona and Georgia ballots marks a big step for Kennedy’s campaign after the independent candidate first qualified for the ballot in Utah. Kennedy, who jumped into the 2024 race as a Democratic candidate, dropped out of the party’s primary last October and launched his independent campaign. Kennedy ended his candidacy as a Democrat just a month after he sent a letter to the Democratic National Committee (DNC) arguing that the party “essentially merged into one unit” with the Biden campaign before the president had secured the nomination.

Democrats have expressed concern about Kennedy’s independent presidential run as polls show the nephew of President John F. Kennedy could play spoiler in the 2024 election. Polls factoring in third-party candidates — including Kennedy, Cornell West, and Green Party candidate Jill Stein — show Biden trailing Trump by three points and falling short of reaching 40% nationwide, according to the RealClearPolitics polling average.

Polling in the battleground states of Arizona and Georgia shows a close race between Biden and Trump, with Trump leading in most of them. While there have been few polls in the swing states factoring in Kennedy’s independent bid, a New York Times/Siena poll taken last October showed 26% of registered voters leaning toward Kennedy in Arizona and 24% in Georgia.


Both states were significant factors in the 2020 election when Biden edged out Trump and in the 2016 election when both Arizona and Georgia helped Trump secure an election victory over Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. In the most recent national election — the 2022 midterms — Democrats posted big wins in both Arizona and Georgia.
