“No Labels Considering Georgia Republican Geoff Duncan to Lead ‘Unity’ Presidential Ticket”


The centrist group No Labels is considering picking Geoff Duncan, the Republican former lieutenant governor of Georgia, to lead a “unity” presidential ticket, people familiar with the discussions said.

The group’s delegates voted Friday to press forward with its efforts to field an independent presidential ticket, based on the idea that voters want an alternative to President Biden and former President Donald Trump, but didn’t name any candidates.  

Some prominent politicians who had been on the group’s radar—including Republicans Nikki Haley and Larry Hogan and Democrat Joe Manchin—have ruled out making presidential bids. If No Labels can’t succeed in recruiting sufficiently high-profile candidates, that could drain enthusiasm among delegates for moving forward with an independent ticket, according to people familiar with its discussions. 

Duncan didn’t immediately respond to a call for comment Friday.
