No Labels Will Not Field Presidential Candidate In 2024

With the clock ticking down to the November presidential election and no viable candidate in sight, the third-party No Labels group announced it will forego fielding a ticket in 2024.

In a press release, No Labels declared it “is ending our effort to put forth a Unity ticket in the 2024 presidential election.” It claimed that U.S. voters are hungry for bipartisan leadership and an independent presidential run.

But the organization said it would only present a ticket if there was a path for its candidates to reach the White House. “No such candidates emerged, so the responsible course of action is for us to stand down.” 

The fall slate already features incumbent Democrat Joe Biden, former Republican President Donald Trump and independent Robert F. Kennedy Jr. It is difficult to envision a ticket presented by No Labels finding its footing in this already contentious race.

The group’s media announcement said it will continue to push back against the “extremes.”

No Labels added, “Suffice it to say that this movement is not done. In fact, it is just beginning.” The organization said it intends to hold a summit to plan its future. 

National Political Director Joe Cunningham is a former Democratic congressman from South Carolina. He told Fox News’ “Your World” the group’s effort to find a candidate was not the issue.

Instead, “The short answer is that to field this ticket, No Labels was looking for a hero, and a hero never emerged.”

There were several political leaders considered for the ticket, but one after another bowed out of a White House run. 

One was outgoing Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV). A conservative by Democratic standards as well as a regular opponent of the Biden agenda, Manchin was deemed by many as a possibility for the No Labels party.

Another was former Maryland GOP Gov. Larry Hogan. He found himself at odds with former President Trump on several occasions but ultimately announced a run for the U.S. Senate.

Hogan is currently polling ahead of possible Democratic opponents, and a win would be a major accomplishment for Republicans in 2024.

Still another possible candidate was former Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who was also a frequent Trump critic. But he rejected the chance, and time ultimately ran out for No Labels to put a viable candidate forward.
