    Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. first announced his 2024 presidential campaign in Boston in April 2023 when he was running as a democrat. Then in October 2023, he decided to run as an independent. On the eve of the New Hampshire first-in-the-nation primary, he has launched We The People party. 

    He announced Monday that he has launched the political party to get on the California ballot.

    The We the People party is seeking to register 75,000 people in the state to be able to run against presidential candidates in the Republican and Democratic parties. California will hold its primary on March 5 along with more than a dozen other states as part of the first Super Tuesday.

    The new political party requires 75,000 registered voters to qualify for the California ballot

    His Kennedy24 campaign is asking supporters to register with the We the People party on the California Secretary of State web site.

    “The current rules were written by the two establishment political parties in order to protect themselves from competition,” the campaign wrote in an email to potential supporters. “As it stands right now, the rules stop independent candidates like me from offering voters an alternative to the status quo.”

    When Kennedy flipped from democrat and then flipped to independent, he said he switched because the two-party political system was “corrupt” and “rigged.”

    In order to get ballot access as an independent candidate in states with significant electoral votes is a “very challenging” and expensive process that can only be accomplished by becoming a nominee of one of the two recognized political parties or by acquiring a set number of signatures, according to his campaign.

    California requires 219,000 signatures for an individual candidate to gain ballot access. A new political party, however, can gain access with just 75,000 party registrations.

    “While registering 75,000 people to a new party is still a big lift, the truth is our campaign already has more than 70,000 supporters in California,” the campaign has claimed. 

    According to a Gallup poll taken in mid-January, Kennedy has a 52% favorable rating among U.S. adults, compared with 42% for GOP frontrunner Donald Trump and 41% for President Biden.

    I registered as a We The People member, but the California SOS hasn't recognized it as a qualified party, which means we do nothing for the primary but sit it out.
