(FixThisNation.com) – In a recent interview with ABC News, independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. argued that he would not be running as a Libertarian candidate as his focus remained on being on the ballot in all 50 states. 

Kennedy argued that they would not face any issues with getting access to ballots on their own and that as such he would not be running as a Libertarian. This statement was made while speaking from West Des Moines, Iowa. His campaign had celebrated the one-day convention which allowed the presidential candidate to receive over 686 credentialed delegates from the 35 Iowa counties required, allowing him to meet the necessary threshold. 

Kennedy pointed out that this was a very effective and successful campaign maneuver, as the one-day convention strategy was far easier than attempting to win thousands of signatures from independents across the state. He added that while they were facing some challenges regarding ballot access across the nation, he was confident that similar success would be replicated in all of the states, and that they would be looking to add two to three states each week. 

The independent candidate also dismissed the possibility that he might join the Libertarian Party as a means of receiving assistance and argued that he continued to be resolute in the objectives of his campaign. He also declined to commit that if he does not meet the 33 percent threshold he would withdraw from the race arguing that he expects to win.

Kennedy recently also responded to polling data which showed him to have only 2 percent of the vote, criticizing the methodology and arguing that it was biased. During the interview he also addressed the war in the Middle East, pushing for the United States to provide more support for Israel.
