Newsom issues dire warning to Biden ahead of November election

Far-left Democrat California Governor Gavin Newsom recently issued a cautionary message to Joe Biden during an MSNBC interview regarding Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s independent presidential campaign. Kennedy Jr., originally considering a run as a Democrat, is now actively securing his spot on ballots across the nation, including key battleground states.

In a significant development, Kennedy Jr. has officially made it onto the ballot in Michigan. This marks the second state, following Utah, to confirm his candidacy for the upcoming election. This development is viewed as a pivotal moment for his campaign.

While speaking on MSNBC’s “Inside with Jen Psaki,” Newsom expressed his concerns about the impact Kennedy Jr. could have on Biden’s chances for reelection. Psaki questioned the governor about his level of concern, to which Newsom responded, “He’s a Kennedy. We revere Kennedy’s, at least I do. That’s real, and I know we can look at some polls. But at the end of the day, common sense would dictate it’s real…Bobby Kennedy Jr., if he gets on [the ballot] in more than just that one critical swing state of Michigan and gets on the ballot in some of these others, I think you have to take that very, very seriously.”

Newsom also detailed the crucial role of several swing states in the upcoming election, emphasizing the importance of Biden’s strategies in these areas. “Now we got seven potential in play, Georgia, North Carolina, we know are going to be perhaps a little more tough than they have been in the past, but we are making a great case. Pennsylvania, the president is a master class of focus on Pennsylvania and then we got to these other states like Wisconsin, I think we have a great shot there. And then these last three, Michigan, Nevada, and Arizona, where I’m putting in all my time and energy and focus,” he said.

Newsom, who has been rumored as a potential presidential candidate himself, has clarified that he is firmly supporting Biden’s reelection, even participating in campaign tours across key states.

Despite the structural challenges faced by third-party and independent candidates in a two-party system, Kennedy Jr. has urged Americans to consider his candidacy seriously. His campaign raises the potential to draw votes from both major party candidates, with his policies and the Kennedy legacy possibly appealing to disillusioned Democratic voters.

Political analysts like Grant Davis Reeher from Syracuse University have voiced that Biden should be wary of Kennedy Jr.’s campaign, especially if the election results are close. With ongoing polls suggesting a tight race among the candidates, the influence of third-party candidates like Kennedy could be more significant than anticipated.
