Hungry for real political disruption? No Labels is itching to deliver.
The vast majority of Americans do not want a rerun of the 2020 election. Nonetheless, Donald Trump and Joe Biden are barreling towards becoming, yet again, the GOP and Democrat candidates for the 2024 presidential race.
No Labels, an organization that styles itself “the voice of the commonsense majority,” has a better idea. They are working to provide what they call an “insurance policy for 2024”. Their plan is to get a slot on the ballot in all 50 states and provide voters with a bipartisan, middle of the road slate of candidates (think Joe Manchin and Larry Hogan, or Larry Hogan and Joe Manchin.) They believe the time has come for a third party and a third choice, and they have a boatload of polling suggesting they could be right.
No Labels was founded by former DNC Finance Chair Nancy Jacobson in 2010. The non-profit created the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus in the House and a related centrist group in the Senate. Their mission is to prod legislators to find common turf, and get things done. Now they are targeting the Oval Office.
