Yes, it's true. That so-called 'nonpartisan' group funded by corporations and other Republican interests is mobilizing whatever get-out-the-vote operation they might have in favor of Cory Gardner, an extremist dressed as a 'moderate.'

Gardner has voted with House Republicans consistently -- to shut down the government, to repeal the ACA (50 times or so), to reject immigration reform, and more. There can't be any question at all about where he stands.

He may be affable and friendly but then again, so was Scott Brown and look how he turned out.

NoLabels is as partisan as they get, and here's more proof, via RealClearPolitics:

No Labels, the nonpartisan political group aimed at ending gridlock in Washington, will actively support Rep. Cory Gardner in the final days of his challenge against Colorado Sen. Mark Udall.

According to an email obtained by RealClearPolitics, No Labels “will be staging independent Get Out The Vote efforts to support our Problem Solver members” between Oct. 31 and Election Day. Gardner is one of those members and is specifically mentioned in the email.

Sent late last week, the email asks former interns if they are “willing to travel to either Sacramento, California or Denver, Colorado with a team of No Labels staffers to assist with” voter turnout operations. No Labels offered to cover travel costs.

Rep. Ami Bera -- a vulnerable California Democrat with strong ties to No Labels -- will also receive voter-turnout help from the group. Bera’s race against Republican Doug Ose is rated a tossup, according to RCP.

No Labels, which was founded in 2010 with the goal of establishing problem-solving consensus and fighting Washington gridlock, confirmed the voter-turnout operation to RCP.

The next time someone tries to tell you NoLabels is all about breaking gridlock in Congress, point to Gardner's voting record and ask them why we should believe that.
