Rep. Justin Amash strongly considering leaving GOP to run against Trump as a Libertarian

There was some speculation earlier this year that Michigan Rep. Justin Amash may run against President Trump as a Libertarian and the buzz is growing louder that he will indeed make that move.

According to The Hill, Never Trumpers and Libertarians are working hard to get Amash to run.

“There are a lot of Libertarian Party members actively encouraging Rep. Amash to switch parties and seek the Libertarian nomination,” said Nicholas Sarwark, the chairman of the Libertarian National Committee. “This is probably the most organized recruitment effort I’ve seen going back to 2012 when people were trying to recruit [former Texas Rep.] Ron Paul.”

Amash irked President Trump over the weekend when he tweeted that the President committed “impeachable offenses.”

The President fired back, calling Amash a “loser.”
