RFK Jr. Taps Nicole Shanahan to Be Running Mate

HeadlineMar 27, 2024

In campaign news, independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has tapped the massively wealthy Silicon Valley attorney Nicole Shanahan to be his running mate. Shanahan is the former wife of Google co-founder Sergey Brin. She gave over $4 million to fund a controversial Super Bowl ad for Kennedy which resembled a 1960 commercial by his uncle John F. Kennedy. Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s run for the White House has been widely condemned by other members of the Kennedy family in part due to his longtime advocacy against vaccines. Dozens of members of the extended Kennedy family met with Joe Biden at the White House last week to show their support for his reelection.
