SPOILER ALERT: DNC Targeting Third-Party Candidates as Biden Worries They Could Cost Him the Election; Report

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.14.24

According to a report from NBC News, the Democratic National Committee is building its first-ever team to counter third-party and independent presidential candidates.

Concerns are growing that candidates like Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Jill Stein, and Cornel West may attract enough votes to cost President Joe Biden his reelection.

From NBC News:

The DNC has hired veteran Democratic operative Lis Smith, best known for her work guiding the 2020 presidential campaign of Pete Buttigieg, to help oversee an aggressive communications component of its strategy, which also includes opposition research and legal challenges.

Underscoring how important Democrats view the effort, it is being overseen by Mary Beth Cahill and Ramsey Reid, two veteran DNC insiders, who have already started issuing rare public statements rebuking Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

Matt Corridoni, Smith’s former deputy on the Buttigieg campaign and most recently a top aide to Rep. Jake Auchincloss, D-Mass., is also joining the team as a spokesperson.

“We’re facing an unprecedented election and we know the GOP is already working to prop up third-party candidates like Robert Kennedy Jr. to make them stalking horses for Donald Trump,” Corridoni told NBC News. “With so much on the line, we’re not taking anything for granted. We’re going to make sure voters are educated and we’re going to make sure all candidates are playing by the rules.”
