No Labels CEO won’t dismiss Joe Manchin as 2024 candidate: ‘Too early’

Nancy Jacobson: No Labels CEO Discusses Potential Third-Party Ticket for 2024 Presidential Election

Nancy Jacobson, the CEO of the centrist political organization No Labels, recently addressed speculation about the group’s potential third-party ticket for the 2024 presidential election. During an interview on Fox News Channel’s America’s Newsroom, Jacobson emphasized that no decisions have been made yet.

“Listen, Joe Manchin, we met, he was at our lunch in 2010,” she said. “He’s the honorary co-chair with Senator Susan Collins of the organization and he is a terrific legislator and he stands for his politics. This is too premature, we have not made any decisions.”

When asked specifically about Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) as a possible presidential pick for the proposed unity ticket, Jacobson stated that it is “too premature” to say. Manchin, who is one of the group’s leaders in the Senate, has not publicly ruled out a bid for the presidency.

While Manchin’s political future remains uncertain, with a tough challenge expected from popular Gov. Jim Justice (R-WV) in his Senate reelection bid, Jacobson emphasized that No Labels is focused on the concept of a unity ticket.

“Let me set the record straight. Our focus is if there is an opening where this ticket is a unity ticket. This is one Republican, one Democrat walking into that White House in 2025, January, focused on the first 100 days for results for the American people. Finally getting results for the American people,” Jacobson said.

Addressing concerns that a third-party ticket could unintentionally impact the election outcome, Jacobson assured that No Labels would step back if it appeared they would act as a spoiler.

“If it’s clear that they don’t want the choices and this is a winning ticket and we can win and not spoil, we are going to do it. If it looks for any reason like this will spoil it, we step down. We’re not cowboys here, we’re just people who want to give the Americans the choice, and they’ll decide,” she continued.

No Labels, motivated by low enthusiasm for a rematch between President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump in 2024, has openly entertained the idea of running a third-party option next year. The group plans to make their decision in April 2024, after Super Tuesday.
