Dave Spencer and Practically Republican bring an important voice and vision to No Labels
San Francisco, Calif. (PRWEB) August 26, 2015
Dave Spencer, founder of Practically Republican and author of the book “Practically Republican: How Concerned Citizens Can Renew & Reclaim the GOP,” joins the No Labels Foundation as an Executive Council Member. No Labels is an organization seeking to move the country beyond the stifling gridlock and strident partisanship that characterizes national politics. Practically Republican and No Labels share a desire to restore a culture of constructive dialogue and problem-solving in Washington.
Spencer, a fifth generation Rockefeller and member of the Executive Committee of the California Republican Party, feels the party has “lost its way,” and started Practically Republican as a forum to unite GOP supporters who support pragmatism, civil debate and cooperation to get things done. No Labels shares a similar agenda, enlisting and organizing “Problem Solvers” in Congress who value progress over partisanship.
“Politics is the art of the possible, but has devolved into an ideological purity contest in both parties,” Spencer said. “Practically Republican and No Labels share a commitment to restoring constructive conversation between our political leaders by focusing on areas where they can agree, rather than disagree. No Labels now has 62 legislators in its Problem-Solving Caucus from both houses of Congress and both parties, who are committed to working across the aisle to the solve critical problems facing the country. Meanwhile, Practically Republican is focused on engaging concerned citizens who want to see our political system start functioning again.”
“Dave Spencer and Practically Republican bring an important voice and vision to No Labels,” said No Labels volunteer CEO and Founder Nancy Jacobson. “Practical Republicans and practical Democrats alike must move and vote beyond rigid party lines to get Washington back to work for the people.”
