“Democrats have been spooked by the effort from No Labels, an organization that promotes centrist, bi-partisan policies and politics, to give Americans another option on the 2024 presidential ballot”
As we have repeatedly pointed out, Democrats are in an absolute panic over the possibility of a third-party candidate from the supposedly centrist group No Labels, which they believe will hurt Joe Biden’s chances in 2024.
Now Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) is reportedly headed to New Hampshire with No Labels, and alarm bells are going off in Washington.

The Daily Mail reports:
EXCLUSIVE: Democratic Senator Joe Manchin to headline third party No Labels event in New Hampshire next week in push to give Americans a candidate other than Biden or Trump
Senator Joe Manchin is headed to New Hampshire next week for an event with No Labels as the group looks to run a third-party candidate in next year’s presidential election and frantic Democrats are trying to stop it out of fears it could siphon off votes from Joe Biden to hand Donald Trump a victory.
Manchin, a former honorary co-chair of the group, will be the headliner of the gathering along with former Republican Governor of Utah Jon Huntsman at the townhall meeting, which will take place Monday, July 17th, at Saint Anselm’s College in Manchester, No Labels told DailyMail.com.
Democrats have been spooked by the effort from No Labels, an organization that promotes centrist, bi-partisan policies and politics, to give Americans another option on the 2024 presidential ballot…
Some Democrats, however, are so concerned that a third-party candidate would take enough support from Biden to give a Trump a win that they have gone from behind-the-scenes lobbying to an out-and-out war with the group.
Democrats care so much about ‘our democracy’ that they have to shut down any group that challenges their hold on power, you see. Even groups like Move On are getting into the fight to stop No Labels.
Dems’ mission to stop a third-party presidential bid hits the Hill
Democrats are mounting a coordinated mission to kill a third-party presidential bid — and it’s coming soon to Capitol Hill.
Officials from the progressive group MoveOn and centrist group Third Way are planning to brief Senate Democratic chiefs of staff on July 27, according to an invitation obtained by POLITICO. It’s part of an effort to educate Democrats about the risk that a third-party bid funded by the well-heeled group No Labels could pose to President Joe Biden — particularly if centrist Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) runs for president rather than reelection.
Matt Bennett, executive vice president for public affairs at Third Way, and Rahna Epting, the executive director of MoveOn, will speak to Democratic senators’ top aides, according to the invitation. The invite tells chiefs of staff dryly that the two “want to share some information that they have on No Labels.”
Third Way has put together research showing that a third-party campaign would hurt Biden, an argument that No Labels has dismissed. Bennett declined to comment specifically on this month’s Capitol Hill meeting but confirmed that Third Way is working urgently to stop a third-party candidate.
Liberals on Twitter are also freaking out:
Let’s be clear: If No Labels runs a third party ticket, they will re-elect Donald Trump.
We need to stop them before it’s too late.

Another story on @NoLabelsOrg. Why won't top Democratic-run firms discuss their work for No Labels & say whether they're still on the payroll? Is No Labels, a dark-money group preparing to possibly run a 3rd-party candidate in 2024, becoming radioactive? https://t.co/86HV4jttr0

We’ve been shouting about No Labels for months now & our message hasn't changed.
– No Labels is funded by extremists w/ ties to Trump & DeSantis world.
– Their current plan will help Trump win in 2024.
– They're an obstacle in our fight to save democracy.
These are the facts.

No Labels is nothing more than a clandestine right wing billionaire backed operation to install Trump again. Make no mistake, they are a threat to and the enemy of democracy. https://t.co/yxtIId5wIE

If a third-party campaign threatened the chances of Trump or DeSantis, Democrats would be throwing money at it.DONATE
