( – Former Rep. Patrick J. Kennedy (D-R.I.) has chosen to endorse President Biden rather than his cousin independent candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. for the 2024 presidential election. 

On Sunday during an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union” mental health advocate Kennedy promoted his new book “Profiles in Mental Health Courage.” As he pointed out when it comes to mental health, Biden was the best president to ever be in office. He continued by noting how much money he had allocated to community mental health across the United States, which is why he believes that Biden is the only choice when it comes to the mental health and addiction crisis. 

Co-host Dana Bash noted in response to these comments that Kennedy’s statements resembled an endorsement, to which the former representative confirmed that he was endorsing Biden. 

Kennedy argued that Biden knew the issues and was the best to deal with them, as these were things that he had personally been affected by. He added that all Americans could relate to Biden as all of them would have been in similar situations. He then pointed out that he was “worried” about the possibility of former President Donald Trump being elected in 2024 as that could be a threat to democracy. He argued that people needed to vote for Biden and democracy as every vote against Biden was a vote for autocracy. 

Kennedy had served in the House of Representatives from 1995 until 2011 and he was now working to advocate for those that had mental health and addiction issues through the Kennedy Forum.
