Representative Justin Amash, who left the Republican party to become an independent will not seek reelection to Congress.

Amash was vocally anti-Trump and briefly ran for president this year.

According to Fox News:

Rep. Justin Amash, L-Mich., who briefly considered running for president earlier this year, doesn’t intend to seek reelection, a top aide said Thursday, according to a report.

“He hasn’t been campaigning for any office and doesn’t plan to seek the nomination for any office,” adviser Poppy Nelson told The Detroit News.

Amash, a five-term congressman and outspoken critic of President Trump, left the Republican Party last year, became an Independent and joined the Libertarian Party in April. He is the first Libertarian in Congress.

Amash was the only Republican to support Trump’s impeachment and, as an Independent, he voted for the articles of impeachment against the president last year.

Amash helped found the Freedom Caucus and was known as one of the most conservative members of Congress, but he left both the party and the caucus when he became an independent last year.

Probably a good thing. It’s not like he’d not be crushed at the polls.

Maybe he’s trying for a seat in Biden’s cabinet if he wins.

The reason he isn’t running again he knows he would lose horribly just trying to save the embarrassment.

He quit for 2 reasons:
… 1st – He still gets paid a “salary” for being office.
……> Secured Income by the TAX PAYERS.

… 2nd – He knows he would get beat.
……> So take the $$$ and run!

Coward! Knows he has little chance of being re-elected, so he’d rather quit than be embarrassed!!!

Another person who mislead his constituents by saying he was a Republican. He’s quitting because he would have no chance of winning a re-election.

GOOD. And good riddance. One less RINO in Congress. I hope he fails at whatever next job he tries for. Traitor. Treasonous and disgusting.

Good to see a RINO drop off the face of the earth. If enough of them go, they’ll become an extinct species. Wouldn’t that be a grand thing.
