West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin, a moderate Democrat, is contemplating a potential independent presidential bid.

He expressed this during a recent gathering and indicated that he would try to move President Biden towards the center.

If unsatisfied, Manchin could launch his own campaign with the support of the centrist organization No Labels.

“I’m not here campaigning. I’m here basically concerned about my country, same as you,” Manchin said. “Wherever life takes me, I’m willing to do, but I’m gonna give everything I have to save the country.”

He has also rejected the notion of being a “spoiler” in the election.

Manchin’s decision is expected after Super Tuesday, and the impact of his potential candidacy on Biden’s re-election prospects remains uncertain.

“Let me just say I have never been a spoiler, nor will I ever be a spoiler on any election,” he said.

“If I’m involved, I’m involved to win,” he added. “But to be a spoiler for the sake of throwing the election one way or the other, I would never do.”

“Right now, both parties seem to have a hard time with the candidates,” Manchin said.
