MoveOn: As Trump Shows How Unhinged Second Term Would Be, No Labels Moves Forward with Voterless Primary

Washington, D.C.Following reporting that No Labels is moving forward with choosing their third-party presidential candidates in secret with their millionaire donors in lieu of a nomination process, MoveOn Political Action Chief Communications Officer Joel Payne released the following statement:

“Last time we checked, Presidential candidates are elected by millions of voters, not hand-picked by a cabal of political insiders. In the last two weeks, we’ve seen Donald Trump signal how unhinged he would be if given a second term. Yet that has only emboldened No Labels to accelerate their reckless and dangerous third-party bid that would help swing the election to Trump. With so much at stake in this critical election, it is long past due for No Labels to give up this endeavor that threatens to undermine our democracy and empower a would-be dictator in Trump.”
