Dems Very Afraid of This!?

( – Fretting over the likely prospects of losing both the White House and the Senate, Democratic senators are very afraid that Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s presidential bid could tip the scales in the upcoming election.

Although there are worries on both sides of the aisle, there is a louder chorus of concern from Democrats fearing Kennedy might play the spoiler, particularly given his storied family legacy within the Democratic Party.

Senator Mazie Hirono (D-HI), a vocal Joe Biden supporter, recognized Kennedy’s impact and hinted that she was worried he could accidentally aid Trump.

“I think he’s basically helping Trump,” she remarked and suggested Kennedy is being manipulated.

Democrats were shocked when Kennedy slammed Biden as a “much worse threat to democracy” than former President Donald Trump, echoing rhetoric more commonly associated with Trump’s camp.

After Kennedy chose Nicole Shanahan as his running mate—a figure known for her generous donations to the Democratic cause—intrigue has only risen.

Kennedy said the reason behind his campaign was the Democratic Party’s shift to the extreme left.

Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), who represents a key swing state, admitted that the Kennedy “last name would have the potential of hurting Biden.”

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) is not taking Kennedy’s candidacy lightly: it has assembled a team led by former White House counsel Dana Remus to monitor his ballot access in key states.

Democrats are attempting to frame Kennedy as an extremist who aligns with Trump’s stances, particularly on vaccines.

In turn, Republican senators like John Hoeven (R-ND) acknowledge that Kennedy had the potential to siphon votes from both camps but sense a greater threat to Biden.

“My general sense is that the Democrats are more worried about Kennedy than in general Republicans are,” Hoeven observed. “Trump is putting out there very clearly now: Don’t be confused folks, this guy is liberal.”

Speaking on a DNC-sponsored call, Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. Austin Davis warned that Kennedy risked diluting Biden’s support, potentially making Trump’s path to victory easier.

Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), who had toyed with the idea of an independent presidential run before bowing out, sees Kennedy’s candidacy as a double-edged sword, capable of drawing support from both major candidates.
