Manchin stands down

West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin, a moderate Democrat, announced Thursday he won’t seek re-election in 2024 — but he will be “traveling the country and speaking out to see if there’s an interest in creating a movement to mobilize the middle and bring Americans together.” 

For Republicans, this makes the possibility of flipping Manchin’s seat (and potentially control of the Senate) look even stronger. Sen. Steve Daines, chair of the committee charged with helping Republicans win the Senate, put out a seven-word statement: “We like our odds in West Virginia.”

For Democrats, Manchin’s announcement that he’ll seek to unite both parties will only increase worries that he’ll launch a third-party presidential run
