Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has submitted enough signatures to qualify for the 2024 presidential ballot in Utah.

He has also been working to secure ballot access in several other states through a super PAC.

Kennedy initially ran as a Democrat challenger to President Joe Biden but switched to an independent campaign in October. (Trending: Transgender Actor ‘Purposefully Misgendered’ By Airline Employee)

Kennedy’s campaign press secretary Stefanie Spear, said, “We will be announcing Jan. 3 our ballot access status in Utah at a press event in Salt Lake City.”

He has been vocal about his views on political divisions in the U.S. and has filed a lawsuit challenging Utah’s signature submission deadline.

“The current deadline is the earliest deadline ever sought to be imposed on independent presidential candidates in the modern era. No federal court has ever upheld a January deadline [for independent presidential candidates],” reads Kennedy’s lawsuit.

Additionally, Kennedy’s request for Secret Service protection has been rejected for a third time.

“I have consulted with an advisory committee composed of the Speaker of the House, the House Minority Leader, the Senate Majority Leader, the Senate Minority Leader, and the Senate Sergeant at Arms. Based on the facts and the recommendation of the advisory committee, I have determined that Secret Service protection for Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is not warranted at this time,” wrote Mayorkas.
