While the country waits with bated breath on Tuesday ahead of the possibility that former President Donald Trump could announce his plans for 2024, one Republican lawmaker isn’t wasting any time announcing his intentions.

“It’s been talked about a lot, but I’m going to announce. I’m announcing it right now that I’m running for the U.S. Senate,” Mooney said Tuesday morning during a radio interview on MetroNews Talkline. “I’m all in.”

Mooney added a subtle criticism of Manchin’s representation of the Mountain State in the Senate, saying, “West Virginia values are at risk in this country. We’re bankrupting America. I want to be a part of the solution there.”

Mooney’s announcement leaves Manchin in a rough political spot, as he barely managed to hang on to his Senate seat in his last campaign in 2018, winning by a mere three percent.

Additionally, as Fox News noted, West Virginia has trended toward the red side of the aisle.
