U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is among 70 members of Congress to “publicly commit to No Labels’ three-year campaign to create a national strategic agenda.”

“Many of these members will wear an orange No Labels lapel pin at President Obama’s State of the Union address tomorrow evening to signify their support,” according to a press release from NoLabels.org. The group is self-described as “a citizens’ movement of Democrats, Republicans and independents dedicated to a new politics of problem solving.”

Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, a Republican, and Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), are No Labels co-chairs. Other members include Sen. Mark Begich (D-AK).
