Kennedy Jr., expressed her concern that her brother’s campaign might inadvertently contribute to the possibility of a second Trump presidency.

“I think the reason that I have felt compelled to speak out about my support for Biden and my concerns about Bobby’s campaign is really based on the polls that you showed at the beginning of this program which is that Bobby’s campaign really is siphoning votes from Biden and could absolutely contribute to Trump winning the presidency,” Rory Kennedy said.

“And I think that that to me is the greatest concern. And I think that the — you know, one of the reasons that I felt compelled to speak is because I feel if I don’t say something there, because, you know, he does have our name, Kennedy, that people will think our entire family is with his views. And I think it’s important to put out there that there are people who don’t agree and have very — very big concerns about his candidacy,” she added.

ABC News added:

Because he is an independent, the success of Robert F. Kennedy Jr’s campaign ultimately depends on his ability to access the ballot in key states.

Though he has officially qualified in just one state, Utah, he insists he will be on the ballot everywhere by the time voters head to the polls.

In a separate interview with the network, Rory made similar remarks about her concerns about RFK Jr. taking Biden votes.

“I think this election is going to come down to a handful of votes in a handful of states,” Rory Kennedy told Stephanopoulos on Monday. “And I am concerned that voting for Bobby is going to take votes away from Biden and lead to a Trump election and I’m very concerned what that will do to our country and to the world over the ensuing four years.”

The Democratic National Committee has increasingly attacked the Kennedy campaign, claiming that he’s “nothing more than a Trump stalking horse,” which he rejects.
