The viability of a No Labels campaign was all but assured with the sudden death of Joe Lieberman. He was a former Connecticut senator and Democrat Vice Presidential nominee. On Thursday, the organization Lieberman co-chaired made it official: No Labels will not be mounting a “unity ticket” for the 2024 elections.

No Labels, a centrist group that had sought to run a third-party presidential campaign, has abandoned efforts to create a “unity ticket”, aiming to win the White House. The organization announced this Thursday.

No Labels has ended its effort to present a Unity ticket for the 2024 Presidential election, No Labels CEO and founder Nancy Jacobson said in a press release. She stated that the organization planned to only offer its ballot line if it could identify candidates with a realistic chance of winning the White House.

She said, “No such candidates have emerged so it is the right thing to do for us to step down. The group will continue to promote unity and give a voice to America’s commonsense majority.”

Jacobson said to allies that the group will end its efforts because they haven’t been successful in recruiting a credible team that can win the election. This is according to those familiar with the process. Jacobson, they said, told supporters the group had reached out to 30 candidates in its search for a candidate.

No Labels raised reportedly $70 million to achieve their goal of creating bipartisan consensus at the highest level of government. However, they never managed to shake the suspicion that the group was merely trying to spoil the reelection of Joe Biden. The talk of a Third Way hasn’t been well received by Never Trump Republicans or Democrat Leftists, but I repeat myself.

No Labels, the egregious Lincoln Project – a group of supposed Republicans that did play spoiler to bring Vice President Joe Biden to the White House in 2020 – has been accused of being a dark cash organization working to put former President Donald Trump in the White House in 2024.

MoveOn has also been pounding the drum, warning that No Labels’ intentions are dishonest.

Both groups view this as a victory, and are now aiming to destroy Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. These people are more dramatic than Jerry Springer.

No Labels have continued to be refused by potential candidates who have been unwilling to join the bipartisan ticket.

Lieberman’s passing is not only an irreplaceable loss to No Labels but also adds uncertainty to the 2024 goals of the organization.

Former New Jersey Governor, Chris Christie announced his decision to not join No Labels’ presidential ticket just hours before the news was released this week. Chris Christie, who had twice failed to win the GOP nomination announced that he would not be joining No Labels for its presidential ticket. This was the latest high-profile rejection for the group. The group has, however, secured a place on presidential ballots across more than 12 states.

Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley was among those who had expressed interest in No Labels but were denied. Larry Hogan, Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, and Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp.

Chris Christie’s goal is to get as close as possible to the presidency, and he will do anything to achieve that. If you lose him, then you have pretty much lost your thread. Mike Rawlings, the chair of the No Labels Convention, said before officially calling it quits that Democrats were wrong to think his group was a spoiler.

Rawlings responded that the Democrats were blaming No Labels for being a “spoiler”, in 2024. He said Democrats should be blamed for choosing Biden again as their nominee.

Rawlings, former CEO of Pizza Hut said, “Somehow, this is No Labels fault.” “The Democrats have done themselves harm with their windmill-chasing, quixotic talking points and the candidate they chose. The Democrats did this. No Labels speaks for the majority of common sense people who say we need to find a better solution.

Rawlings predicted that Democrats would be run over by “Trump’s train”. Rawlings’ prediction could become reality if The Lincoln Project, MoveOn, and other groups fail to convince Robert F. Kennedy Jr. to leave his campaign.
