Roundup: Republicans Boost Third-Party Threats

WASHINGTON, D.C. – MAGA Republicans are willing to do and spend whatever it takes to reelect Donald Trump in November—and that includes helping third-party spoilers like RFK Jr., Cornel West, and Jill Stein. 

Earlier this week, USA Today reported that Trump’s biggest donor, Timothy Mellon, has also been boosting RFK Jr.’s campaign with millions in contributions. Since 2023, he has given $50 million to PACs supporting both RFK Jr. and Trump.

Trump’s allies have been plotting to turn the election against President Biden by backing third-party spoiler candidates, and not just RFK Jr.: Republican operatives in North Carolina, a key battleground state, are working to get Cornel West on the presidential ballot

In the aftermath of the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold access to the abortion pill mifepristone, MoveOn published a refresher on RFK Jr.’s flip-flopping stances on abortion and reproductive care, including IVF.

Below is a roundup of coverage spotlighting RFK Jr.’s dangerous policy views and vision for our country:
