Axios reports on the obstacles standing in Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s way to qualify for the June presidential debate:

“Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has a shot to make the June presidential debate, but the clock is ticking on two challenging thresholds.

“Why it matters: He would be the first independent presidential candidate to make the debate stage in 32 years — and just the third in presidential debate history.

“Kennedy has the financial support, aggressive ballot access plan and strong polling to make his long-shot endeavor a fight. Kennedy has blasted Biden and Trump over the June debate, accusing them of ‘colluding’ against his campaign to ‘avoid discussion of their eight years of mutual failure.’

“Zoom in: Instead of having until September to get on enough state ballots to qualify for a debate, Kennedy now has about a month.

“Former President Trump and President Biden agreed earlier this month to forgo the traditional fall debates held by the nonpartisan Commission on Presidential Debates. Ross Perot, the last independent presidential candidate to make the debate stage, didn’t qualify for the ballot in all 50 states until Sept. 18, 1992, per CNN. (He briefly suspended his campaign from July to September).”
