Robert F. Kennedy Jr. reportedly chooses affluent lawyer Nicole Shanahan as his vice presidential candidate in his presidential campaign.

Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is reportedly set to select Nicole Shanahan, a California attorney and entrepreneur, as his running mate.

According to a report by Mediaite, Shanahan, a Democratic donor and the former spouse of Google cofounder Sergey Brin, financed Kennedy’s expensive Super Bowl campaign commercial.

According to sources close to the campaign, Kennedy and Mikovits share a strong alignment on various issues, including their skepticism towards vaccines. Not only can Mikovits contribute to Kennedy’s campaign financially, but she can also assist in ensuring that he appears on the ballots across all 50 states.

The choice notably excludes Aaron Rodgers, the New York Jets quarterback, whom Kennedy mentioned as a potential candidate for Vice President, from appearing on the November ballot.

Kennedy’s campaign has not confirmed whether or not he has made a decision.

In a statement to The Post, Mr. Kennedy’s campaign press office acknowledged the media’s speculation regarding his choice for a vice presidential running mate.

Aaron Rodgers will not be selected as RFK Jr.’s vice president, which comes as a sigh of relief for the Jets.

Shanahan, 38, disclosed in a recent interview with The New York Times that she contributed a whopping $4 million to the super PAC, American Values 2024. This generous donation was specifically earmarked to finance the $7 million 30-second Super Bowl commercial.

While she denies being an “anti-vaxxer,” she admits to endorsing Kennedy’s ongoing criticism of vaccines. Additionally, she identifies herself as a progressive who prioritizes the well-being of children.

According to records obtained by The Times, she contributed to President Biden’s campaign in 2020 and made a maximum donation of $6,600 to Kennedy’s campaign in May 2023 when he was still vying for the Democratic nomination.

The Bay Area attorney tied the knot with Google’s Brin in 2018, but their marriage officially ended last summer following reports of her romantic involvement with Tesla CEO Elon Musk.

According to a report by the Wall Street Journal in 2022, Musk and Brin had been close friends for a long time, with Musk often staying at Brin’s home.

According to reports, Musk and Shanahan had a falling out after their brief fling in December 2021. During this time, Brin asked his financial advisers to sell his personal investments in Musk’s companies.

Both Musk and Shanahan have denied the allegations.

He clarified that he has only encountered Nicole on two occasions over the course of three years, and both times were in the presence of several other individuals. Furthermore, he emphasized that there was no romantic involvement during these encounters.

In January 2022, Brin initiated proceedings for the dissolution of his marriage from Shanahan, as reported by People. The couple has a young daughter together.

Kennedy started his campaign as a Democrat, running against President Biden. However, in October, he made the decision to run as an independent candidate. Throughout the race, Kennedy has consistently polled as the leading third party candidate, often reaching double-digit support. Despite facing competition from President Biden and former President Donald Trump, Kennedy has managed to maintain a strong presence in the field.

According to the New York Times this week, former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura was one of the individuals on Kennedy’s short list for consideration. Kennedy stated that Ventura, along with Rodgers, was “at the top of his list.”

Kennedy’s campaign is actively pursuing funding to ensure his presence on the ballot as an independent candidate in all states. The estimated cost for achieving this goal is $15 million. However, at present, he has only managed to meet the ballot requirements in four states: Hawaii, Nevada, New Hampshire, and Utah.
