How RFK Jr.’s Presidential Ambitions Might Accidentally Sink Ted Cruz’s Reelection Bid

How RFK Jr.'s Presidential Run Could Make a Difference

Robert F. Kennedy Jr’s presidential campaign has thrown a wrench into Senator Ted Cruz‘s reelection plans, and it’s not just about the votes Kennedy might siphon from Cruz.

Kennedy’s presence on the ballot is expected to draw a unique coalition of voters, including young people who don’t typically participate in elections, to the polls in November. This surge of new voters could have a ripple effect down the ballot, potentially boosting Democratic Representative Colin Allred’s chances against Cruz.

Kennedy’s campaign has already gained significant traction, with over 245,000 Texans signing petitions to get him on the ballot. While Kennedy’s support comes from both Democratic and Republican voters, experts predict that his presence will ultimately harm Cruz’s chances.

Ted Cruz’s Worst Nightmare: How RFK Jr.’s Campaign Could Derail His Reelection Hopes

“This is definitely not good for Cruz,” said Mark P. Jones, a political science professor at Rice University. “Kennedy’s presence on the ballot could actually help Democrats.”

Kennedy’s appeal to young voters, in particular, could reshape Texas politics. Historically, this demographic has been disengaged from the political process, but Kennedy’s campaign has resonated with them.

As Jones noted, “RFK Jr. is likely to mobilize a group of voters to turn out and vote in the presidential race who, absent his presidency, would not have participated.”

Once these voters cast their ballots for president, they’ll likely continue down the ballot, potentially supporting Democratic candidates like Allred. This unexpected twist could spell trouble for Cruz’s reelection bid.
