RFK Jr. Urged Democrats To Keep NH Primary First In 2024 Voting

  • As the Democratic National Committee prepared to cast its votes to strip New Hampshire of its first-in-the-nation presidential primary status, it received a personal letter from a member of the party’s most legendary political family.
  • Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
  • “My uncle believed that New Hampshire earned the right to host the nation’s first primary because it played such an important role in giving the American people the right to nominate their candidates in the first place,” President John F. Kennedy’s nephew wrote. “For more than a century, New Hampshire has been fertile ground for the strongest Democratic candidates. Now, more than ever, it is important that the Democratic Party have a primary campaign that produces our party’s most competitive candidate.”
