Manchin Steps Down As Honorary Co-Chair of No Labels

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) issued the following statement about stepping down as honorary co-chair of No Labels:

“No Labels began as an organization that attempted to foster bipartisan conversation amongst Members of Congress on both sides of the aisle. I believe in this mission, and believe that No Labels has done a lot to open a dialogue, not only between Democrats and Republicans, but also between Members of the House and Senate – something that was lacking in Washington. Given my position as a sitting United States Senator, who cannot be involved in the day-to-day decision making of the organization, I believe it is appropriate for me at this time to step down as honorary Co-Chair. I still support the original goals of No Labels and will continue to work with them to foster bipartisan communication and bring some common sense back to Washington.”
