According to the Hill, Joe Manchin stated that he would look into all of these issues, but he has no plans on doing anything at this time.
Although he didn’t explicitly state that he would follow Senator Krysten Sinema’s decision to leave the Democratic Party, Manchin said that he would make a decision regarding this in the future.
He also stated that he could not predict what the future would bring. When asked if he would make a decision soon, he said that he would only give you his current mindset.
Joe Manchin hails from West Virginia, which voted for Donald Trump by around 40 points over Joe Biden.
Although he didn’t explicitly state that he would leave the Democratic Party, Manchin said that he respected Sinema's decision to leave the party and become an independent.
He also stated that he respected Sinema's decision to leave the Democratic Party. He said that he would continue to work with her.
Last week, Sinema announced that she was leaving the Democratic Party due to her dissatisfaction with how she didn't fit neatly into any party box.
In an interview, Sinema stated that she was surprised by the reaction to her decision to leave the Democratic Party, but she believed that it made a lot of sense. She said that she didn't want to be in a party that didn't fit her.
During the 2021 and 2022 political cycles, Sinema opposed a number of Democrat priorities. For instance, she voted to end the national coronavirus emergency, as well as to protect the Senate filibuster. She also opposed the CDC's requirement for people to wear masks on trains, planes, and buses.
Although he supported a number of the same Democrat priorities, Manchin is likely hoping that his opposition to some of Biden's proposals will help him win his re-election campaign.
In West Virginia, Manchin already has a Republican challenger in Congressman Alex Mooney. He could also face other potential challengers such as Patrick Morrisey, the state's attorney general.
