No Labels is a third party black money group that would put Donald Trump back in the White House in 2024. Disguising themselves as a group of moderates trying to save America, right-wing corporate donors are funding a $70 million campaign, through a party called No Labels, to create a spoiler ticket that would draw votes from Joe Biden in swing states.
This third-party offer is not a blind operation trying to promote bipartisan progress. Shrouded in mystery, the group will not disclose its donors and has not yet offered a platform or agenda. What we know: They are well-funded by right-wing mega-donors aligned with Donald Trump and serious about defeating Biden to advance a MAGA agenda. According their own website:
- Twenty of the 22 states they are targeting are states Biden won in 2020.
- Two-thirds of the delegates they want to siphon off are from blue states.
- They are already on the ballot in five states, including the battleground state of Arizona.
Make no mistake, this third-party spoiler offering will put Trump back in the White House (or DeSantis if Trump falters). We have to stop them.
While No Labels has been around for over a decade, its recent push to advance a spoiler ticket has its former members and bandmates attacking and distancing themselves from the group. Reps. Abigail Spanberger (D-VA) and Brad Schnieder (D-IL) are members of the Problem Solvers Caucus founded by No Labels, and they recently denounced his candidacy for president. No Labels attacked Rep. Schnieder by sending a mass text message to his constituents and calling him “out of step” with his constituents. In response, Rep. Schneider said, “The No Labels attacks are the kind of division the country needs less of right now, and it’s a betrayal of every moderate and every problem-solver in Congress.”
Who is funding this third-party effort? Remember Harlan Crow, the right-wing billionaire Republican donor who has lavished Clarence Thomas with financial gifts for years? He made a six figure donation à No labels. Crow is the type of donor with deep pockets to corrupt our political institutions and advance an anti-democratic and extremist agenda. With donors like these, it’s no wonder No Labels refuses to disclose who else is funding their unscrupulous attempt to undermine the 2024 election.
And their tactics are already exposed as less than ethical. In Maine, Secretary of State told No Labels to ‘cease and desist’ for tricking voters into changing their political party affiliation. In Arizona they are being prosecuted for failing to disclose donors. With the support of billionaires, they don’t care about the consequences of breaking the laws. Their donors want Biden defeated. That is why MoveOn alerted state and electoral council secretaries in all 50 states on the deceptive efforts of No Labels.
MoveOn has joined a coalition to stop this third-party bid as part of our 2024 strategy to keep MAGA Republicans out of the White House. We are raising funds to launch a counterattack and continue to create an America where everyone can prosper. Will you participate?
Our plan will expose them for who they are – billionaires who want MAGA back in the White House. Donald Trump would roll back our freedoms, our democracy and the hard-won progress we have made to advance economic, racial, social and environmental justice. And that’s why we have to stop them.
If they raise enough money, show up on the ballot, and recruit their candidates, it will make our 2024 efforts even more difficult and much more costly. If, like us, you fear that a third party will return Trump to power, add your name to the petition to stop No Labels today.
