The Senator from West Virginia won’t commit to Biden 2024.
According to a report from Fox News, Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) is taking a “wait and see” approach to a potential Biden bid for reelection; “I’m not predicting anything,” Manchin says.
During a recent interview with NewsMation’s Chris Cuomo, Manchin cast doubt that he would rally behind his party’s leader.
“I’m not predicting anything or how I’ll support or not support […] but I can tell you this. Whoever the elected president is — Democrat, Republican, independent — everyone should pray they succeed. I’m gonna do everything I can to make that person successful.”
“I’m just, I’m always for the right person when they’re running. […] Joe Biden is a good person with a good heart who wants to do the right thing,” Manchin continued.
Manchin did have some positive things to say about Biden, including “some people around him sometime I disagree with, and I disagree with a lot of the advice he’s getting, and we talk back and forth. But we have a very respectful, candid conversation.”
But he still wouldn’t commit to supporting him.
