A political party has won ballot access in three states, aiming to
offer voters a viable third-party option for president in 2024, and
Democrats are worried the group will act as a "spoiler" to hand the
presidency to Republicans.
No Labels, a group that claims to want to give voters a non-extreme presidential option next year, has gained enough support to appear on
2024 presidential election ballots in Colorado, Arizona and Oregon.
Criticism of the group varies between those calling it a blatant effort
to hurt President Joe Biden's reelection chances to those calling it
"Rather than producing a third-party ticket that would defy the
overwhelming odds and win, No Labels is on track to field a spoiler who
would reelect Trump or a Trump-like Republican," think tank Third Way
said in a memo this week.
"No Labels is committed to fielding a candidate that will,
intentionally or not, provide a crucial boost to Republicans — and a
major obstacle to Biden. As a result, they’ll make it far more likely —
if not certain — that Donald Trump returns to the White House."
