RFK Jr Threatens Biden

Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

(DCWatchdog.com) – President Joe Biden could lose the first two primaries for the 2024 Democrat nomination if the states that traditionally hold them first defy a recent primary calendar change, a report reveals.

Even though Biden is “almost certain” to win his party’s presidential nomination, he might be embarrassed in the first two primaries if those are held by Iowa and New Hampshire, according to Axios.

Earlier this year, the Democrat National Committee made South Carolina the first state in its 2024 primary season with a February 3 vote.

The decision benefited Joe Biden since his victory in South Carolina brought him back into the 2020 race.

However, the states traditionally voting earlier – especially New Hampshire – have been angrily disputing the decision, and it’s becoming more likely that they will defy the DNC, according to the report.

In that case, the president would lose the first two primaries, most likely, to one of the two challengers, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

It is noted that Biden’s campaign has indicated that he wouldn’t be on the ballots in Iowa or New Hampshire if those states decide to hold primaries before South Carolina.

“Democrats in Iowa and New Hampshire could defy Biden and move ahead with their contests — even as the party warns it will strip them of their national convention delegates if they jump the gun,” reports the left-leaning news outlet.

As a result, any “long-shot Democrat” such as RFK Jr. could win the primaries in those states, thus “embarrassing the president.”

The report stresses that New Hampshire’s Democrats have been “openly bashing” the White House and the DNC ever since the change in the primary calendar was approved.

Under the new schedule, New Hampshire and Nevada would vote together second after South Carolina. However, New Hampshire Democrats insist their state law requires them to hold the first primary.

While Iowa’s Democrats haven’t been so outspoken in opposing the change, they have recently “quietly moved” to have their primary on the same day as the state GOP in January – but through a mail-in option.

Yet, in that case, New Hampshire legislators have indicated they might try to hold their Democrat primary even before Iowa’s.
