Biden gets another Democratic challenger as Robert F. Kennedy Jr files to run for president
Robert F. Kennedy Jr, the son of former Attorney General and Senator Robert F. Kennedy, has announced his candidacy for the Democratic nomination for president in the 2020 election. Kennedy, a prominent environmental activist and lawyer, joins a crowded field of candidates vying to challenge President Donald Trump in the general election. Kennedy's announcement comes as a surprise to many, as he has not been actively involved in politics in recent years. However, he has been a vocal critic of the Trump administration's environmental policies, particularly its decision to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement. In a statement announcing his candidacy, Kennedy said, I am running for president because I believe that we need bold, visionary leadership to address the urgent challenges facing our country and our planet. We need to take immediate action to address the climate crisis, protect our natural resources, and ensure that every American has access to quality healthcare, education, and economic opportunity. Kennedy's candidacy is likely to appeal to progressive voters who are looking for a candidate who is committed to addressing climate change and other environmental issues. He has been a leading advocate for clean energy and has worked to promote renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power. However, Kennedy's candidacy is also likely to face challenges from other candidates who have been more actively involved in Democratic politics in recent years. He will need to build a strong grassroots campaign and raise significant funds in order to compete with the likes of Senators Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Kamala Harris. Despite these challenges, Kennedy's candidacy is a welcome addition to the Democratic field. His commitment to environmental issues and his family's legacy of public service make him a compelling candidate who could energize voters and help the party win back the White House in 2020.
