TO BE OR NOT TO BE

April 23, 2019

Michigan Congressman Justin Amash (R-Grand Rapids) is rumored to be toying with a bid for U.S. President on the Libertarian Party ticket in 2020, and some third party ticket leaders believe the nomination is his for the taking. Amash, a frequent critic of President Donald Trump, told The Detroit News that while he hasn’t ruled out a presidential run, he said “considering is too strong a word.” While Libertarian Gary Johnson in 2016 took less than four percent of the vote in Michigan, there is the possibility in a battleground state as Michigan is forecast to be, Amash could take enough votes away from Trump in 2020 to cause problems for the President, who won Michigan by just 10,704 votes in 2016. Of course, all of that speculation hinges on whether Amash – a self-proclaimed independent Republican – will even decide to declare himself a Libertarian and seek the nomination.
