Eric Clapton helps RFK Jr. raise $2.2 million at Los Angeles fundraiser
By Laura Harris // Sep 25, 2023

Legendary musician Eric Clapton helped Democratic candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. (RFK Jr.) raise a staggering $2.2 million for his presidential campaign in an exclusive and star-studded fundraiser event in Los Angeles on Sept. 18.

"I am deeply grateful to [Eric Clapton] for bringing his musical artistry and rebellious spirit to my gathering in Los Angeles last night and helping raise $2.2 million for my campaign,” RFK Jr. said in a statement released on Sept. 19.

In late August, the Kennedy campaign announced that Clapton would perform at its exclusive fundraising event with ticket prices ranging from $3,300 to $6,600. Clapton also expressed his excitement about the fundraiser event and praised RFK Jr. for his commitment to "truth, unity, peace and posterity" through a video message.

According to the Kennedy campaign team, the funds collected during the event will be divided into two: $1 million for the presidential campaign of RFK Jr. and the remaining $1.2 million for a political action committee (PAC) supporting his bid for the presidency. RFK Jr. and Clapton share the same views about the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Eric sings from the depths of the human condition. If he sees in me the possibility of bringing unity to our country, it is only possible because artists like him invoke a buried faith in the limitless power of human beings to overcome any obstacle," RFK Jr. said.

DNC trying to manipulate primary rules in favor of Biden

Ever since RFK Jr. announced his presidential candidacy earlier this year, he has been the closest rival of President Joe Biden in different polls conducted by different private and public organizations. In short, RFK Jr. is one of the many threats against Biden's presidency.

However, Biden still enjoys the support of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) for a second term in the White House despite the fact that he faces an impeachment inquiry.

In an open letter published on the Kennedy 2024 campaign website, RFK Jr. accused the DNC of manipulating the primary rules and limiting democracy to favor Biden in his presidential campaign.

"The DNC and the Joe Biden campaign have essentially merged into one unit, financially and strategically, despite the promise of neutrality in its charter and bylaws. The DNC is not supposed to favor one candidate over another. It is supposed to oversee a fair, democratic selection process, and then support the candidate that its voters choose," RFK Jr. wrote.

Section 4 of the DNC's rules backed the claims of RFK Jr., stating that the party chairperson must be fair and treat all presidential candidates and their campaigns equally. However, in February, the DNC promised their strong support for both Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.

"Voters deserve – and democracy requires – a competitive process by which to determine nominees. It should be a party’s voters who choose a candidate, not party insiders who anoint one," RFK Jr. further wrote.
