RFK Jr. announces Democrat donor Nicole Shanahan as running mate

Robert F Kennedy Jr. has officially selected his vice presidential running mate. Yesterday, the independent candidate announced major Democratic donor Nicole Shannahan was joining him on the ticket.

Shannahan is the ex-wife of Google co-founder Sergey Brin and has a long history of donating to left-wing causes – including leftwing criminal justice reform, environmentalism, and abortion.

And while her left-wing credentials might alienate some of Kennedy’s more conservative supporters, Democrats fear she’s increased the odds of Kennedy pulling votes from President Joe Biden in the general election.

In a call yesterday, DNC members described Kennedy as a “spoiler” for Biden, saying there is now “greater likelihood that Donald Trump will become president again.”
