Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is slated to appear at a CPAC summit in Las Vegas, Nevada, later this month, CPAC has announced.
“Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has a unique voice in advocating for the defunding of the weaponized bureaucracy and ensuring the constitutional right of medical freedom,” CPAC chairman Matt Schlapp said in a statement.
“Kennedy joining such an important event is a reflection of the splintering of the left-wing coalition that has gone full woke Marxist to the point that traditional liberals don’t feel welcome anymore. The breakup of the left-wing coalition is occurring while the conservative coalition has hopes of adding more blacks and Hispanics who reject gender insanity, the effects of the terrible economy, and the destruction of their once safer neighborhoods,” Schlapp continued.
The summit, which is also slated to feature Vivek Ramaswamy, Kari Lake, Steve Bannon, Ric Grenell, Sen. Mike Lee of Utah, and others, is being billed as an event that will “bring together the most important voices in the conservative movement who stand for American Values and freedom.”
Kennedy advocates policies such as hiking the minimum wage to $15 per hour, “restricting natural gas exports,” and slashing “drug costs by half to bring them in line with other nations,” according to his campaign website.
President Joe Biden has been trouncing Kennedy in the polls.
Kennedy has said that he will “make a major announcement” October 9th in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Mediaite has reported that Kennedy will make an announcement that he will run as an independent. “Bobby feels that the DNC is changing the rules to exclude his candidacy so an independent run is the only way to go,” a Kennedy campaign insider noted, according to the outlet.
CPAC events have previously featured former Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii.
