    The hope for a credible third-party 2024 candidate fizzles out – By Mabinty Quarshie (Washington Examiner) / Feb 16, 2024

    The hope that a third-party candidate could threaten President Joe Biden or former President Donald Trump‘s reelection appears to be fizzling out after several possible contenders declined to run in the 2024 race.

    Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) became the latest candidate to pass on a presidential run when he announced on Friday that he wouldn’t launch an independent run with the centrist group No Labels.

    “I just don’t think it’s the right time,” Manchin said during his announcement.

    Manchin joins Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) and former Republican Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan in passing up a presidential run. Romney, who is not seeking reelection to the Senate, also shot down interest in running for the White House again after Manchin floated him as a possible running mate.
