Justin Amash Gets Primary Challenger

One of the original members of the Freedom Caucus has become the president’s most prominent nemesis.

Even before he doubled down on impeachment, Representative Justin Amash found himself fighting for his political life.

Now, State Rep. Jim Lower is telling the Detroit Free Press he intends to challenge Amash in Michigan’s 3rd District.

The Daily Caller reports:
 

“Congressman Justin Amash tweets yesterday calling for President Trump’s impeachment show how out of touch he is with the truth and how out of touch he is with people he represents,” Lower said. “He must be replaced, and I am going to do it.”

Amash became the first congressional Republican to lay out his case for impeaching the president in a tweet thread he sent Saturday.

“Here are my principal conclusions: 1. Attorney General Barr has deliberately misrepresented Mueller’s report. 2. President Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct. 3. Partisanship has eroded our system of checks and balances. 4. Few members of Congress have read the report,” Amash said.

After Amash’s impeachment stand, Republicans quickly made clear that Amash stands alone.

 


Even some of the president’s critics agreed:
 


Still, those knowledgable of Michigan politics say Amash shouldn’t be underestimated, citing his district’s tolerance for his unorthodox views and effective constituent relations.     

Amash won 54 percent of the vote in 2018.
