How third-party and independent candidates could threaten Democrats and Republicans in 2024
Over the past week alone, two political outsiders have taken steps to launch independent or third-party presidential bids
NEW YORK (AP) — Robert F. Kennedy Jr., an anti-vaccine conspiracy theorist and scion of the storied Democratic dynasty, is expected to launch an independent or third-party presidential bid on Monday. Cornel West, a philosopher and Black social leader, made the same choice last week. And No Labels, a new political party, is intensifying candidate recruitment efforts.

Those associated with the third party efforts make no apologies for their work.
