Democracy Alliance also met privately with the center-left group Third Way and the progressive organization MoveOn on Wednesday to discuss No Labels, according to several people familiar with the event who were granted anonymity to speak about a closed-door event. closed. Third Way and Move On normally stand on opposite ends of the Democratic Party spectrum, but they recently joined forces in an aggressive effort to undermine the plan launched by No Labels.

The goal of Wednesday’s meeting was to sound the alarm to the party’s top donors and fundraisers, and urge them to stop wealthy people they know from donating to No Labels. The meeting of a few dozen people, including several donors and donor advisors, took place on Zoom.

“I would be surprised if any of the people on this appeal were themselves a No Labels donor, but many of them in their networks know people who are likely No Labels donors,” said Matt Bennett, co-founder of Third Way. “What we’re trying to convince them of is not that No Labels is a bad organization, but that this project is very, very dangerous. »

No Labels did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The group signaled that if it is clear by Super Tuesday that the presidential race will be between Trump and Biden, and there is a path to victory, then it will field a third-party candidate. No Labels has won ballot access in several states and reportedly has a $70 million budget for a possible third-party effort.

Rahna Epting, executive director of MoveOn, said that during the meeting, “the first question was to tell everyone you know, especially those who are political donors.” The “second request was to empower the entities and organizations that are doing the work to try to stop them.”

Third Way and MoveOn gave a presentation to donors outlining No Labels’ actions as well as the data they say shows it is not possible to win as a third-party candidate.

Dick Gephardt, the former House Democratic leader who launched a bipartisan group to oppose a third-party nomination, also attended the meeting Wednesday.

Bennett said that, as is usually the case when he gives these presentations, he was asked at the conference whether the groups were going to run ads against No Labels.

“The answer to that question is no, not yet. This is really a question that is currently being debated among political insiders and elites,” he said. “And No Labels said they couldn’t move forward with that. And what we hope is that we can convince them not to do it, and then we never have to do a big public campaign.”
