West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin, a moderate Democrat, has declined to endorse President Joe Biden’s potential reelection bid. During a recent appearance on CBS News’ “Face the Nation,” Manchin was asked if he would endorse Biden if he ran for reelection.
Manchin responded by saying that there is plenty of time for the election, and that he wants to wait and see who all the players are before making a decision.
Manchin also declined to provide clarity on his own political future, stating that he would not make any announcements until the end of the year.
Manchin’s comments come as the 2024 Republican primary is heating up, with several potential candidates, such as former Vice President Mike Pence and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, expected to enter the race.
Republicans in West Virginia are also gearing up to flip Manchin’s seat in the 2024 election. With Manchin refusing to endorse Biden’s potential reelection bid, Republicans are optimistic about their chances of winning the race for the White House.
