GOP Senator Says He’s Open To Considering Third Party ‘No Labels’ Ticket | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Senator Bill Cassidy (R-LA) said on Sunday that he was open to considering being on or supporting the presidential ticket for the No Labels political organization if the conditions are right.

    Cassidy made the comments during an appearance on NBC News's "Meet the Press" with host Chuck Todd. The senator said that while he has an interest in potentially joining or supporting a ticket if the group approaches him, at the end of the day, it depends on who the Republican and Democrat nominees are.

    "If they came and spoke to me, I would certainly speak to them back," Cassidy said when the host posed a hypothetical rematch between President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump, who currently leads the Republican field.

    Cassidy said he has not spoken with No Labels about a potential run but that it is something he would be "open" to. Several Democrats have expressed concerns that a third-party bid by the organization could unintentionally lead to a Trump victory. At the same time, the group bills itself as an anti-Trump alternative to GOP donors.

    "Seventy percent of the American people want something different," he said. "Plausibly, we could have a setting in which someone has been convicted and someone else shows signs of mental decline so significant 70% of the American people are already thinking he's too old."

    The Louisiana Republican said Biden is not being "transparent" with the American people when it comes to his health and mental state, adding that there is an "actual need" for the electorate to know about Biden's health, but that "we're not being told." A Wall Street Journal poll released last week found 73% of registered voters believed the president was "too old to run for president."

    "With this, should there be another option for the American people? And, I think plausibly there should be," Cassidy said.

    Cassidy, a former Democrat, was first elected to the Senate in 2014 and re-elected in 2020. He was one of just seven Republican Senators who voted to convict Trump during his second impeachment on "incitement of insurrection." Last month, he said he would vote for "a Republican" if Trump were the nominee but added that he believes the former president should drop out of the race. On Sunday, he told Todd he "might have to write" in a Republican.


    According to the No Labels website, the group aims to create a "Unity ticket" as an "insurance plan" if the Democrat and Republican parties nominate candidates who "the vast majority of Americans don't want to vote for in 2024." They are trying to reach the "politically homeless," the website says.

    Late last month, the group's founding chairman, Joe Lieberman, a former Democratic U.S. Senator from Connecticut, announced there would be a party convention in Dallas, Texas, in April 2024 - but only if they believe they have a "realistic chance to win."

After nearly 8 months of the United States House of Representatives' Oversight Committee hearings, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy is pursuing an Impeachment Inquiry into the strong allegations of Bribery, Influence Peddling, Money laundering and possible Treason regarding the Biden Family Shell Corporations' business dealings with foreign nations that are adversarial to our survival: Is it prudent and wise for the Republican controlled U.S. House to investigate this Democratic Socialist President?
  No, Democratics should never be investigated because they are so superior to their Republican counterparts, and care so much more.
  Yes, in a Constitutional Republic, bound by the Rule of Law, no one is above the law, and that law must be applied evenly.
  Not sure ... Now, what got all this started?
