Setting the Record Straight:
No Labels Response to Thomas Edsall’s New York Times column
This week, New York Times contributing columnist Tom Edsall wrote a piece asking if No Labels had become a stalking horse for Trump. Over the past year, bad-faith actors have maliciously spread lies about No Labels’ effort to give the American people what they’re asking for in 2024: a better option. We are pleased to announce a new feature, Setting the Record Straight, correcting common misconceptions about No Labels and our mission.
Senator Joe Manchin is a tireless voice for America’s commonsense majority and a longtime ally of the No Labels movement. The Senate will lose a great leader when he leaves, but we commend Senator Manchin for stepping up to lead a long overdue national conversation about solving America’s biggest challenges, including inflation, an insecure border, out-of-control debt and growing threats from abroad.
In advance of an Open to Debate conversation with a representative of Move On, No Labels is releasing an Interested Parties Memo outlining the falsehoods behind the chief claims against the organization’s 2024 ballot access efforts.
The No Labels Party of Arizona filed a complaint today against Arizona Secretary of State Adrian Fontes, alleging it is being forced to offer its ballot line to candidates for races in which it has expressly declined to compete, in violation of Arizona election law and the U.S. Constitution.
No Labels, a movement that gives voice to America’s commonsense majority, sent an open letter to about 3,000 Democratic Party state and county chairs nationwide, calling for the Democratic National Committee to end its “anti-democracy campaign” against No Labels and its efforts to get on the ballot in the 2024 presidential election.

Attempts to block No Labels' ballot access are unconstitutional
Last week, in the shadow of the U.S. Capitol, a bipartisan group of lawmakers in the House Problem Solvers Caucus met and released a framework to keep the government from shutting down at the end of this week. Their work reveals leaders rising to the occasion to make our democracy work. But across town, there was a very different kind of meeting that illustrates why our democracy is so broken.

No Labels preps playbook to select presidential candidates, broaden support
The group that’s preparing a potential third-party bid is seeking ways to grow grass roots before deciding whether to field candidates next year
As Republican presidential candidates head to the debate stage this week in Milwaukee, a new No Labels poll of 9,418 registered voters conducted by polling firm HarrisX in eight key battleground states reveals that 63 percent would be open to supporting a moderate independent presidential candidate if the major party alternatives were Joe Biden and Donald Trump. Close to 3 in 4 voters (72 percent) believe that more choices at the ballot for elections leads to a “healthier and more vibrant democracy,” rather than introducing “spoiler candidates.”
No Labels, a groundbreaking movement giving a voice to America’s commonsense majority, is thrilled to announce that our movement has successfully won ballot access in 10 states, with a 4-1 decision by the North Carolina Board of Elections approving a new No Labels party in the state this weekend.
Amid a coordinated effort to undermine No Labels’ work to secure ballot access in states nationwide, we have named Jay Nixon – a lifelong Democrat who spent 30 years serving Missouri as a governor, attorney general and state senator – as director of our new Ballot Integrity Project.
Today, No Labels announced original honorary co-chairs Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Gov. Jon Huntsman (R-UT) as the keynote speakers for the first in a series of Common Sense town hallstaking place on Monday, July 17th at Saint Anselm College in Manchester, New Hampshire from 5:15 PM to 6:30 PM EDT.
Manchin will be in New Hampshire on Monday, July 17th with No Labels, the group is holding an event as it seeks to give Americans an option to Joe Biden and Donald Trump in the 2024 presidential race.
