No Labels Too Obvious of a Grift Even for America 2024

This is kind of like “too big of a cocaine addict to be in a 1970s rock band.”


The centrist group No Labels is abandoning plans to form a third-party presidential unity ticket for this year’s election.

“Americans remain more open to an independent presidential run and hungrier for unifying national leadership than ever before,” No Labels spokesperson Maryanne Martini said in a statement Thursday.

“But No Labels has always said we would only offer our ballot line to a ticket if we could identify candidates with a credible path to winning the White House. No such candidates emerged, so the responsible course of action is for us to stand down,” she added.

The Wall Street Journal was first to report on the No Labels decision not to field a presidential ticket.

In its quest for a unity ticket, the group had been rebuffed by several high-profile figures, including former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley. Other top prospects such as West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin and former Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan ended up distancing themselves from the group.

No Labels suffered another setback when former Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman, the group’s founding chairman and one of its most prominent advocates, died last month.

He’s dead, but he’s not necessarily out of it.
