Republican West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice said on Fox News that he is “very interested” in running for U.S. Senate in 2024. The seat is currently held by Sen. Joe Manchin (D).

Justice is a former Democrat who announced he was joining the GOP at a 2017 Trump rally.

“I’m very interested. I mean, that’s all there is to it, and I’m very serious about it. I don’t play games with anybody at that point, jerking people around and all that kind of stuff,” he said.

“I am a guy who is hung up on the truth,” he added. “I’m a guy who is hung up on serving. I’ve never taken one thing from being the governor of this great state. We’ve taken it from a really tough time into a situation to where now we’ve got surpluses, we all believe, and we’re on the pathway of maybe cutting our personal income tax by 50%.”
