American Values 2024 (AV24), a Super PAC supporting third-party presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr., has announced its intention to spend up to $15 million to secure his ballot access in 10 crucial states for the 2024 presidential race.

Despite Kennedy’s cross-party appeal and significant fundraising, his candidacy depends on successfully navigating the ballot access process, which major parties have complicated over the years.

AV24’s plan involves manually collecting signatures in Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Nevada, New York, and Texas. “We have chosen to pursue these critical states, some of them battlegrounds, due to the complexity of the state election codes and the volume of signatures necessary to achieve ballot access,” said Deirdre Golffard, who advises the Super PAC.


This effort represents approximately half of the national signature requirement for Kennedy’s November ballot inclusion.

Following Kennedy’s declaration to run as an independent, AV24 co-founder Tony Lyons told Reuters that the Super PAC was on track to raise nearly $30 million. Significant funding has come from Timothy Mellon, a former donor to Donald Trump.
