No Labels gains Arizona 2024 ballot spot, could play spoiler

PHOENIX (AP) — A group that has pledged to create a pathway for an alternative candidate to run against the Republican and Democratic presidential nominees in 2024 will get a spot on the ballot in Arizona. The presidential battleground state is the second after Colorado to recognize No Labels as a political party. The group’s push for ballot access has angered Democrats and anti-Donald Trump Republicans, who worry a No Labels candidate couldn’t win but would tip the scales in favor of Trump or a Trump-like Republican. No Labels says it will run a bipartisan “unity ticket” for president “if the two parties select unreasonably divisive presidential nominees.”
