🚨Sen. Joe Manchin says he ‘absolutely’ would consider a presidential run.

Here’s what NBC News reported:
Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., inched closer Wednesday to confirming that he could run for president.
“I will do anything I can to help my country, and you’re saying, ‘Does that mean you would consider it?’ Absolutely,” Manchin said in an interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press” moderator Kristen Welker.
“Every American should consider it if they’re in a position to help save the country,” he added.
Manchin said he first has to explore whether there’s an appetite among voters for a moderate candidate like him.
“I’m going to do everything in my power to make sure, to mobilize that moderate, sensible, commonsense middle,” he said.
Manchin suggested that if he can “reinvigorate” the middle-of-the-road constituency, that would play a major role in whether he would launch a White House bid.

Per Fox News:
Jill Stein, a physician and climate change advocate, announced Thursday her bid to seek the Green Party’s nomination for the 2024 presidential election.
Stein announced her intention to run on social media and vowed to end the nation’s two-party rule, address the “climate collapse” and advance a Green New Deal. Her campaign’s official launch will kick off on Nov. 21.
“The political system is broken, the two parties of war and Wall Street are bought and paid for,” Stein wrote on X.
“The ruling parties that got us into this mess aren’t getting us out. Both parties are squandering trillions on the endless war machine, fueling conflict around the world while tens of millions here at home lack food, housing, and healthcare.”
“We need real choices on the ballot, because without freedom of choice in elections, there is no democracy.”
