Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia made headlines a week ago when he announced that he won’t be running for re-election, which opens up an opportunity for the GOP to pick up a senate seat in the next elections.
Since he made the announcement, there has been speculation that he would run for president, which he hasn’t confirmed or denied.
Here it is…
🚨Sen. Joe Manchin says he 'absolutely' would consider a presidential run.
He also says he thinks Biden needs to move more to the middle — the man we elected has swung too far left.

On Wednesday, Manchin reinforced the rumors that he will make a presidential run when he said he was considering leaving the Democratic Party.
