Former congressman Dennis J. Kucinich has been replaced as Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s presidential campaign manager by his daughter-in-law, who also happens to be a CIA agent.
This weekend, Kucinich was replaced after he said the campaign needed a “new direction.” Amaryllis Fox Kennedy, who is wed to RFK’s son of the same name, was named in his place.
RFK’s campaign manager since he declared his candidacy earlier this year was Kucinich, who had already run for president twice.
Amaryllis worked in the CIA’s most prestigious and covert operations division for ten years.
Kennedy, a lawyer and environmental activist, has been a staunch advocate for environmental causes for decades.
He co-founded the Waterkeeper Alliance, a global environmental organization, and has been a vocal proponent of clean energy, conservation, and the fight against climate change.
His political journey has included roles as a senior attorney for the Natural Resources Defense Council and chief prosecuting attorney for the Hudson Riverkeeper.
Kennedy’s commitment to environmental issues has made him a prominent voice in the ongoing debate about climate change and environmental protection.
Amaryllis joins the senior campaign staff in the wake of RFK’s decision to run as an independent in next year’s presidential election, which has increased scrutiny from both factions.
Many pro-Trump political commentators have voiced concern over RFK Jr’s decision, believing it may be an attempt to bleed support from the former President in the upcoming presidential contest.
