Mike Maturen of Michigan was nominated to run for president in 2016. Maturen was an official write-in in 25 states and on the ballot in Colorado.

The name is taken already and is associated with conservative teaching, including commitment to traditional marriage. The historic use renders the values of the party more specific than what a dominant political party would find most advantageous. Solidarity is also historically associated with Communist movements and socialism, even if it is pro-labor.
