Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia, a Democratic moderate, declined to endorse President Biden's potential re-election bid during an appearance on CBS News' "Face the Nation" on Sunday.

When asked by host Margaret Brennan if he would endorse Biden's reelection, Manchin replied, "There's plenty of time for the election. Let's see who all the players are. Let's just wait until it all comes out."

Manchin also avoided answering questions about his political future, as he faces a serious challenge from Republicans in his state in 2024. He stated, "I'm not going to make my announcement for anything until the end of the year. I won't do it until the end of the year. I've got too much to do now."

Biden's White House has stated that the President "intends to run," but Biden himself has not made an official announcement. Meanwhile, the 2024 Republican primary is heating up, with former President Trump already taking shots at his potential opponents.

So far, only he and former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley have formally announced campaigns. However, there are several other anticipated candidates, including former Vice President Mike Pence and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.

Manchin's comments reflect a common sentiment among conservatives, who believe there is too much emphasis on election cycles in America. As reported by Fox News, Manchin stated, "The bottom line is, let's see who's involved. Let's wait until we see who all the players are."

The senator's refusal to endorse Biden may signal a potential rift within the Democratic Party, particularly among more moderate members. As the 2024 election cycle heats up, it remains to be seen how other Democrats will react to Manchin's comments and what impact they will have on the overall race.
