Senate Democrats looking for Manchin to leave No Labels

74664861Democrat Joe Manchin of West Virginia is facing mounting pressure from his Senate colleagues to resign from his position as the co-chairman of group No Labels, according to sources familiar with Senate Democratic politics. Democrats have been increasingly perturbed by the actions of No Labels, which bills itself as a force for bipartisanship in Washington. In the spring, the group raised hackles when it endorsed Republican Rep. Cory Gardner in his race to unseat Democratic Sen. Mark Udall of Colorado. Tensions escalated over the summer after Yahoo News reported the group was planning for a GOP takeover of the Senate. Such a takeover, the group suggested, could create more political gridlock, which would give No Labels an “opportunity” in its mission to fight gridlock by having more to fight.
