Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is considering challenging President Biden for the 2024 Democratic presidential primary nomination. 

"I am thinking about it, yes," Kennedy told a crowd in New Hampshire on Friday, according reports from Fox News and other news outlets. "I have passed the biggest hurdle, that my wife has green-lighted it,"

Kennedy reportedly made the remark at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics, considered a must stop in the state for potential or actual White House contenders.

Kennedy is the son of the late Sen. Robert F. Kennedy and nephew of the late President John F. Kennedy. The environmental lawyer is a self-described lifelong Democrat, who also has been a vocal critic of the COVID-19 vaccine.

In his speech at the institute, Kennedy was reportedly critical of the Democratic National Committee moving the party's New Hampshire presidential primary from first to third place.
