No Labels to Unveil Gov. Jon Huntsman, Sen. Joe Manchin Leadership Team and Congressional Problem Solvers on January 14 at Meeting to Make America Work! in New York City
No Labels, a national movement of hundreds of thousands of Republicans, Democrats and independents promoting a new politics of problem solving, has announced former Gov. Jon Huntsman (R-UT) and Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) as its new national leaders. The duo will make their first public appearance together on Jan. 14, 2013, at the Marriott Marquis in New York City at the Meeting to Make America Work!
In the wake of the recent tragedy in Newtown, CT, No Labels supports the task force against mass violence put forth by the president earlier today and the idea of a national commission as a follow-up encouraged by Sen. Joe Lieberman, among others. It is essential to take this first step of starting a serious conversation about mass violence in America in order to find the solutions our country so desperately needs.
