The Kennedy campaign today announced it has submitted the required signatures to gain ballot access in Nebraska. The campaign turned in 5,023 signatures, more than two times the required amount.

“Today is a historic day as we submit paperwork to get Robert F. Kennedy Jr. on the ballot in the Cornhusker State,” said Midwest Regional Director Lane Koch. “It’s been a privilege to work with our dedicated volunteers to ensure voters have an independent option at the ballot box this November.”

The campaign’s aggressive ballot access operation has surpassed all its milestones to ensure the Kennedy-Shanahan ticket is on the ballot in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The ballot access operation is fully funded with more than $15 million raised.

The Kennedy-Shanahan ticket is officially on the ballot in nine states — Utah, Michigan, California, Delaware, Oklahoma, Hawaii, Texas, South Carolina, and Mississippi. 

It has collected enough signatures for ballot access in 14 other states — New Hampshire, Nevada, North Carolina, Idaho, Iowa, Ohio, New Jersey, New York, Florida, Minnesota, Tennessee, Alaska, Washington, and now Nebraska.

The Kennedy-Shanahan campaign has collected the signatures needed for ballot access in 23 states, totaling 310 electoral votes, 58% of the 538 total electoral votes nationwide.

On May 1, the Kennedy campaign released results from a Zogby poll showing Kennedy beats both Presidents Biden and Trump in head-to-head matchups. Trump defeats Biden handily. Kennedy beats President Trump in a two-way race, by a tight margin. In a two-way race between Kennedy and President Biden, Kennedy wins in a landslide. Kennedy is the first independent ever to defeat both major party candidates in head-to-head matchups.
