No Labels made a suggestion to Nikki Haley to affix their third-party presidential ticket and was instantly shot down by the Haley marketing campaign.
“If Gov. Haley doesn’t achieve acquiring the Republican nomination for president and she or he declares any curiosity in being a part of our bipartisan unity ticket, I’m positive the folks at No Labels would give that essentially the most critical consideration, however clearly she’s not accomplished that as a result of she’s an lively Republican candidate for president,” mentioned Lieberman, a former Senator.
“Nikki has little interest in No Labels, she’s proud of the Republican label,” Haley spokesperson Olivia Perez-Cubas mentioned in a textual content message.

Two folks accustomed to the group’s pondering, who have been granted anonymity to talk candidly, mentioned that No Labels would like that Haley win the GOP nomination since she’s a mainstream Republican. If Haley received the nomination, the group would possible not run a No Labels ticket.
Nikki Haley ought to have zero curiosity in No Labels as a result of the ticket that they’re threatening to run is doomed. It’s unclear whether or not No Labels can get on the poll. Joe Lieberman’s feedback additionally recommend that No Labels doesn’t even have a plan or candidates in thoughts.

No Labels has additionally apparently misjudged the angle amongst potential Biden supporters towards their effort. Democrats and Democratic leaners aren’t seeking to dump President Biden.
Somebody like Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) main a third-party ticket doesn’t get the political blood flowing.
The concept that No Labels floated the potential of becoming a member of the ticket to Nikki Haley means that the floundering effort is beginning to get a little bit determined.
