Nancy Jacobson
Founder, No Labels


After spending her career helping Gary Hart and Bill Clinton remake the Democratic Party, Jacobson worked for Sen. Bayh for fifteen years. In 2010, she founded No Labels, and has since served as the organization’s volunteer CEO. 

At No Labels, Jacobson built a core of leaders ready and able to wield power against both sides of Congress; this group became the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus. She simultaneously built a financial infrastructure capable of providing air cover and direct support to independent-minded candidates in both parties, creating a donor network that funded a Super PAC, No Labels Action. 

No Labels established the only network effectively pulling candidates from both parties to the center. Jacobson created an organization working to transform power dynamics in Washington and get our nation’s leaders to fix, not fight.
