Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has eclipsed the signature threshold to qualify for the ballot in North Carolina, his campaign says.

“In North Carolina, supporters formed “We The People,” a new political party that will run RFK Jr. in the state. The campaign collected more than 23,000 signatures, including a buffer of more than 60%,” RFK Jr.’s campaign said in a press release.

“North Carolina is the fifth state in which RFK Jr. has collected the necessary signatures to achieve ballot access. Kennedy is already on the ballot in Utah and has collected all the necessary signatures to be on the ballot in New Hampshire and Nevada. In Hawaii, the Office of Elections has confirmed Kennedy supporters have collected the required signatures to establish the ‘We The People’ party,” the press release continued.

“North Carolina was a key swing state in the 2020 presidential election as President Trump defeated Joe Biden by less than 2 percent,” The Epoch Times noted.

From Kennedy24:

North Carolina was the fifth-closest swing state in the 2020 presidential election, with a difference of just 1.34% of the vote between presidents Biden and Trump.

The Kennedy campaign has launched a robust ballot access plan to ensure the Kennedy-Shanahan ticket is on the ballot in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The campaign was already actively collecting signatures in 16 states before announcing a vice president. After the announcement, 19 additional states opened for petitioning.

“We have the field teams, volunteers, legal teams, paid circulators, supporters, and strategists ready to get the job done,” said Stefanie Spear, campaign press secretary.

Last week, Kennedy welcomed attorney and tech entrepreneur Nicole Shanahan to the campaign as his vice presidential running mate at a packed rally in Oakland, California. Millions watched on TV and social media as Kennedy and Shanahan pledged to restore the middle class, end the chronic disease epidemic, unwind the war machine, and unravel the corporate capture of our government agencies.

“100% I’m going to be on the ballot in every state and the District of Columbia,” RFK Jr. told CNN.


Breitbart reports:

An interactive map on the campaign website shows that petitioning has not yet opened in 11 states: Colorado, Illinois, Louisiana, Minnesota, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Washington, and Wisconsin. The petitioning process also has yet to open in Washington, DC.

The campaign’s “robust ballot access plan” aims “to ensure” he is an option to voters in all 50 states come November.

“We have the field teams, volunteers, legal teams, paid circulators, supporters, and strategists ready to get the job done,” campaign press secretary Stefanie Spear said in the release.

Kennedy Jr. is currently the third strongest candidate behind former President Donald Trump and President Joe Biden.

The national RealClear Politics polling average shows Trump leading with 42 percent support in a five-way race that also includes third-party candidates Cornel West and Jill Stein. Biden comes in second at 39.6 percent, while Kennedy Jr. averages 10.3 percent. Stein and West register at two percent and 1.9 percent, respectively.

After Kennedy Jr. announced Shanahan as his running mate, Trump took to Truth Social to share that he loved Kennedy Jr.’s candidacy, declaring him “Crooked Joe Biden’s Political Opponent, not mine.”

He also dubbed Kennedy Jr. “the most Radical Left Candidate in the race.”

“RFK Jr. is the most Radical Left Candidate in the race, by far. He’s a big fan of the Green New Scam, and other economy killing disasters. I guess this would mean he is going to be taking votes from Crooked Joe Biden, which would be a great service to America. His running mate, Nicole Shanahan, is even more ‘Liberal’ than him, if that’s possible. Kennedy is a Radical Left Democrat, and always will be!!!” Trump said on Truth Social.

“It’s great for MAGA, but the Communists will make it very hard for him to get on the Ballot. Expect him, and her, to be indicted any day now, probably for Environmental Fraud! He is Crooked Joe Biden’s Political Opponent, not mine. I love that he is running!” he added.
