But with Congress as polarized as ever, the group is launching a new initiative to encourage collaboration between members of both parties.
No Labels is hosting a meeting in New York today that focuses on “problem-solving.” Big names such as former Utah Gov. and Republican Presidential candidate Jon Huntsman, Sen. Joe Manchin, a Democrat from West Virginia, and Newark Mayor and Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Cory Booker have joined the movement.
Also signing on as one of 25 congressional problem-solvers: U.S. Rep. Jim Himes from Connecticut’s 4th District.
“With @davidcicilline and a bunch of other members and senators at @NoLabelsOrg in NYC. Listening to @CoryBooker talk about problem solving,” Himes tweeted this morning. (He’s refering to Rhode Island’s David Cicilline.)
