Aaron Rodgers and Jesse Ventura on RFK Jr.’s VP shortlist


Former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura and quarterback Aaron Rodgers of the New York Jets are on independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s short list of potential running mates, according to NBC News on Tuesday. In an interview conducted last month, Kennedy stated that he expected to announce his choice for vice president in the next 30 days. Early in March, the deadline that was set for oneself passed without any notice. A Kennedy campaign spokesman stated on Tuesday that the candidate “is considering Aaron Rodgers and Jesse Ventura as running mates along with others on a shortlist.” “There’s no additional information is provided.” Rogers or retired professional wrestling competitor Dean Ventura were on Kennedy’s shortlist, according to the New York Times.

Requests for comment from Rodgers

and the Jets were not immediately answered. Ventura was unavailable for comment. The 72-year-old Ventura became the first candidate from the Reform Party to win a statewide position when she was elected governor of Minnesota in 1998. Furthermore he did not run for reelection after serving one term. After missing the first game of the 2023 season due to an injury, the 40-year-old quarterback—who is slated to be inducted into the Hall of Fame—is expected to play again this year. He has won four MVP honors and a Super Bowl. Last year, Rodgers backed Kennedy, 70, after the two became friends over their resistance to the Covid vaccination.

“This is presidential,” was Kennedy’s response to President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address, which Rodgers repeated on X on Tuesday afternoon. The Kennedy shortlist was criticized by the Democratic National Committee. “No one asked for the reunion of the Three Stooges. Given that conspiracy theorists were selecting, it’s not surprising that this group made the short list. Senior adviser to the Democratic National Committee Mary Beth Cahill said in a statement.

Kennedy struggled to gain support from the Democratic base. So he abandoned his Democratic presidential campaign last year and entered an independent one.  Because an analysis of a hypothetical campaign featuring Biden, former President Donald Trump, and Senator John F. Kennedy as an independent was done by Quinnipiac University last month. The results showed that 38% of people would back Biden, 37% would support Trump, and 15% would support Kennedy.  2.6 percentage points could have been the margin of error for the survey, which comprised 1,421 self-identified registered voters countrywide.
