Senator Cassidy Says He Will Not Run for President for No Labels Party

By Jerry McConway, updated on March 18, 2024

Last year, the No Labels party announced that it would not put a candidate out there to block Biden, as they did not want to be the spoiler.

Well, the No Labels party just proved it is nothing more than another wing of the Democrat Party by announcing its plan for the 2024 election… only that plan just got spoiled.

Talking Points…
- The No Labels Party
- Cassidy says ‘No, Thanks’
- Analysis

The No Labels Party

The No Labels website is filled with grand ideas, only it is all a lie. For instance, right on its “About Us” page, it claims that this country needs a “united front,” stating:

“This moment demands American leaders and citizens alike declare their freedom from the anger and divisiveness that are ruining our politics and most importantly, our country. A United Front.”

No Labels has insisted it will not be a “spoiler” to the 2024 election, yet they are trying to court a Republican candidate that will take a bite out of Trump’s delegates to hurt him and elect Joe Biden. Their latest quest was to get Senator Bill Cassidy (R-LA) to run on its ticket, who has already announced that he is resigning from Congress.

Cassidy Shoots Down No Labels

Cassidy confirmed over the weekend that he had no intention of running under the No Labels party. When asked directly if he would be running, he stated:

“I’m not.

“I was never seriously considered to be their candidate. It was reported in the press otherwise, but I was never seriously considered … The answer is not.”

He then commented on the overall idea of No Labels, stating:

“On the other hand, the very fact that No Labels did, that was floated, I will say has a certain rationale to it. People at No Labels actually want answers to serious problems in our country. And right now, neither candidate is actually offering serious solutions.

“So the very fact that I speak about that means that, wait a second, this might be somebody whom we would consider. Because this person is talking about serious, serious answers to serious problems.”

Analysis

Now, I agree with Cassidy on the idea of No Labels, but this new party has done nothing thus far that makes me believe they are in this simply to give Americans a realistic third option, but instead to play the actual spoiler against Trump.

Many Americans have been looking for a legitimate third-party solution in this country, as many of us believe that neither the GOP nor the Democrat Party are interested in working for legal American residents and citizens but instead are only in this for themselves.

If there was ever an election that could offer a legitimate threat by a third party, this would be it, but then I have to wonder why No Labels is not wooing Kennedy. If he were to add a conservative as his VP, it would be the exact type of ticket that No Labels insists it wants to present, but they know Kennedy is more of a threat to Biden than Trump, so that is not even being considered.
