No Labels, a third-party group, will not run a candidate in the 2024 presidential election if polling shows that its nominee would help elect either a Republican or a Democrat, co-chairman Joe Lieberman says.

"We've made very clear that we’re not in this to be spoilers," Lieberman, former U.S. Senator for Connecticut and unsuccessful vice presidential candidate, said Sunday on ABC News' "This Week." 

"We’re in this to give the majority of the American people who feel that the major two parties are failing them a third choice, both in policies, such as we're going to release in New Hampshire tomorrow, but also possibly in a third candidate," he also said.

The group is releasing what it calls a "common sense" policy agenda on Monday in New Hampshire, a state with an early primary. Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin is scheduled to speak at that event, sparking speculation that he may try to run for president as a third-party candidate.
