Democratic West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin said during an interview that he will not commit to voting for Joe Biden in 2024 or any other presidential candidate.
While speaking with Chris Cuomo, Manchin talked about the increasingly polarizing climate in politics. They also discussed working across the aisle to get things done.
Manchin was asked whether or not he would vote for Biden in 2024 and responded, "If Joe Biden runs again — if he's the Democrat nominee — depending on who the Republican nominee is, we'll just have to wait and see."

"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."
Cuomo was obviously stunned by the response. He pointed out that it's very uncommon for a sitting senator to not pledge support for a sitting president of their own party.
"I don't know what to tell you on that. 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 responded.
Despite not pledging his support for Biden in 2024, he was complimentary, saying, "And I've always believed that. Some people around him sometimes 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."
