MoveOn Statement: No Labels Abandons Reckless Third-Party Run

April 4, 2024

Washington, D.C. – In response to reporting that No Labels will announce on Monday that they are finally abandoning their efforts to run a spoiler third-party presidential ticket, MoveOn Political Action Executive Director Rahna Epting released the following statement:

“Millions of Americans are relieved that No Labels finally decided to do the right thing to keep Donald Trump out of the White House. Now, it’s time for Robert Kennedy Junior to see the writing on the wall that no third-party has a path forward to winning the presidency. We must come together to defeat the biggest threat to our democracy and country: Donald Trump.”

Since writing an op-ed in The Washington Post last spring, MoveOn has been campaigning against the dangers of No Labels, in concert with Third Way. Epting appeared on NPR’s “Open to Debate” against No Labels’ Ryan Clancy and spoke recently with USA Today and The New York Times on the dangers posed by third-parties this fall. Additionally, MoveOn launched ExposeNoLabels.comcalled on secretaries of state to monitor No Labels’ ballot access activities after voters in Maine were misled into changing their party affiliation status, and organized more than 85,000 people to sign a petition calling for No Labels to step aside.
