Democratic Rep. Ro Khanna of California called on Nicole Shanahan, the running mate of presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, to step down, warning that supporting Kennedy could pave the way for former President Donald Trump to win the election.

He made his pitch to her in a letter he shared with CBS News, though he hadn’t yet sent it to Shanahan.

“Even Trump himself, and other members of his team, have admitted that a RFK Jr. ticket will help his reelection,” Khanna wrote in his letter.

“While you may have fair disagreements on the Democratic Party’s platform, it is clear that a second term for Trump would be disastrous for climate and undo the work of President Biden’s Inflation Reduction Act, the most significant action Congress has taken on clean energy and climate change in our nation’s history,” Khanna went on.

When reached by CBS News, Shanahan opted to post her response to the letter on social media, making it clear she had little patience for Khanna’s latest thoughts on the Kennedy campaign.
