No Labels Announces Gov. Jon Huntsman and Sen. Joe Manchin as National Leaders
Duo to Join Members of Congress and 1,300 citizens at No Labels Meeting to Make America Work!
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!
Huntsman and Manchin will join more than 1,300 No Labels citizen leaders and elected officials at an event that will also feature the unveiling of a new group of congressional problem solvers featuring House and Senate members committed to meeting regularly to build trust across the aisle.
“As governors, both Jon Huntsman and Joe Manchin developed well-earned reputations as problem solvers,” said No Labels Co-Founder Mark McKinnon. “That’s precisely the attitude we need more of in Washington and these two leaders will be great advocates and spokesmen for our movement.”
“On the heels of a fiscal cliff resolution that postponed action on many critical issues, it will be essential to have Democrats and Republicans willing to search for common ground in the months ahead.” said No Labels Co-Founder Bill Galston. “At this moment in our history, working to bridge the partisan divide is both the principled and the patriotic thing to do. Governor Huntsman and Senator Manchin can play a critical role in building support across the country for our parties coming together.”
No Labels is a grassroots movement of Democrats, Republicans and independents dedicated to promoting a new politics of problem solving.
