Sen. Joe Manchin Confirms He Will Not Recontest In 2024

Sen. Joe Manchin, a Democrat from West Virginia, declared on Thursday that he will not seek reelection in 2024.

Following the red-state Democrat’s much-awaited announcement, the party will have a difficult time holding onto its slim majority in the upcoming election.

Democrats already had a difficult task in 2024 to maintain their majority in the U.S. Senate. There are 23 seats up for grabs, with the most disputed occurring in the Republican-leaning states of West Virginia, Ohio, and Montana.

The 76-year-old Manchin claims to have achieved his goals for his home state. Additionally, he said he wasn’t done with politics.

“I will finish my term while traveling the country and speaking out to see if there is interest in building a movement to mobilize the middle, find common ground, and bring Americans together,” Manchin said in a video posted online.

Manchin has expressed in the past that he would consider running for president in a third party. He has made appearances at gatherings for the collective No Labels, which is investigating what it terms a possible “unity” presidential ticket.

In his own state, Manchin has encountered a challenging reelection battle. Prominent West Virginia Republicans, such as Governor Jim Justice and Representative Alex Mooney, were already contesting against him. Sen. Steve Daines of Montana, the chairman of the Senate GOP’s campaign committee, declared in a statement that “we like our odds in West Virginia.”
