Rep. Justin Amash, a Republican-turned-independent from western Michigan, announced Tuesday evening that he is exploring a third-party bid for the presidency.

The five-term congressman and critic of President Trump said he's launching an exploratory committee to seek the Libertarian Party's nomination.

"We're ready for a presidency that will restore respect for our Constitution and bring people together," Amash wrote on Twitter. "I'm excited and honored to be taking these first steps toward serving Americans of every background as president."


  • You're not going to be Preident
  • It's May, there are only six more months to the election
  • Nobody knows who you are
  • You'll siphon "Never Trumper" votes away from Joe Biden
  • You're going to guarantee that Trump is the re-elected
Why are Rightwingers such selfish, arrogant creeps? Hmm
Contrarian, extraordinaire
