The independent candidate in the US election in November, Robert Kennedy Junior, nephew of the assassinated president “JFK”, revealed on Tuesday the name of his running mate, the lawyer and philanthropist Nicole Shanahan.< /p>

“I am grateful to Nicole for […] making the very difficult decision to embark with me on this extraordinary crusade to reconquer our country,” announced the sixty-year-old.

Robert Kennedy Junior is the son of former Democratic Attorney General and presidential candidate Robert “Bobby” Kennedy, who was assassinated in 1968, and the nephew of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy, who was killed five years earlier.

He wants to offer himself as an alternative to the candidacies of Joe Biden and Donald Trump. A lawyer specializing in environmental issues, he is known for spreading conspiracy theories, particularly on vaccines.

At a campaign rally in Oakland, Calif., on Tuesday, Robert Kennedy Jr. sang the praises of Nicole Shanahan, a “young surf fan” with a “strong spiritual dimension.” .

He assured that he “shared a number of values” with this thirty-year-old, known to be very connected in the world of tech and political philanthropy.

Nicole Shanahan would be vice president if Robert Kennedy Junior were elected to the White House.

She was married to Sergueï Brin, the co-founder of Google.

Robert Kennedy Junior first declared himself a presidential candidate in April 2023, under the banner of the Democratic Party, which would have seen him face President Biden in the primaries.

He then changed his label, which allows the independent candidate to find himself on the ballot alongside Democratic and Republican contenders Joe Biden and Donald Trump.

Robert Kennedy Junior could thus siphon precious votes from the candidates of both parties, with most elections being decided in a pocket handkerchief.

Many of his relatives denounced his decision to run and went to the White House in mid-March for an event with Democratic President Joe Biden.
