Michigan’s Congressman Amash For President?
Well this came out of nowhere. West Michigan Congressman Justin Amash was on CNN’s “State if the Union” show and was asked if he would run for President as a Libertarian in 2020.
Congressman Amash replied:
Well, I’d never rule anything out...That’s not on my radar right now, but I think it is important that we have someone in there who is presenting a vision for America that is different than what these two parties are presenting.
Just 2 months ago Congressman Amash told a group of Libertarians at a conference called LibertyCon that according to reason.com the:
ideal” Libertarian presidential candidate would bring together both Republican and Democratic voters, and not just appeal to "diehard" libertarian types.
Whom might that ideal Libertarian be, well Rep. Amash might think himself.
He went on to say on CNN’s “State if the Union” show:
Right now, we have a wild amount of partisan rhetoric on both sides, and Congress is totally broken. We can't debate things in a clear way anymore. Everything has become, do you like President Trump or do you not like President Trump...We need to return to basic American principles. Talk about what we have in common as a people — because I believe we have a lot of common as Americans — and try to move forward together rather than fighting each other all the time.
Many of my listeners are his constituents, would you vote for Congressman Amash for president as a Libertarian?
