Ris­ing Dem Star Urges Manchin Not To ‘Mar His Lega­cy’ With Biden Chal­lenge

Rising Dem Star Urges Manchin Not To ‘Mar His Legacy’ With Biden Challenge

A ris­ing star in the Demo­c­ra­t­ic Par­ty implored Sen. Joe Manchin (D‑WV) on Sun­day not to chal­lenge Pres­i­dent Joe Biden in the 2024 elec­tion.
Mary­land Gov­er­nor Wes Moore, who has become a top sur­ro­gate for Biden’s re-elec­tion effort, sent the warn­ing shot after Manchin announced last week that he would not seek re-elec­tion to the Sen­ate in 2024 and kept open the pos­si­bil­i­ty to a White House run amid spec­u­la­tion that he could be enlist­ed by No Labels, a group that is con­sid­er­ing a “uni­ty” pres­i­den­tial tick­et to attract mod­er­ate vot­ers.
“My mes­sage to Joe Manchin is, I thank him for his ser­vice. I think he’s had a year — a career of dis­tin­guished ser­vice, both as a gov­er­nor,” Moore said dur­ing an inter­view on ABC’s “This Week.”

“I would urge him not to mar his lega­cy by get­ting involved in some­thing so fool­ish.”
