He must have wanted to be out because he had to have known it would happen. Either guaranteed a high profile position on MSM cable news network, or a high six figure lobbyist position? Whatever it is, he’s a sociopath.

Donate to the non-swamp Afghanistan war Veteran challenger Tom Norton. Lower has been a staffer to
Lt. Gov Brian Calley who is a never Trumper. Calley was subservient to Gov. Snyder who is also a never Trumper. Prior to that, Lower was a legislative aide to another Kasich never Trumper. Does he sound like a pro-Trump guy now?
Yes, I am in district and hyper aware of BOTH candidates. ESTABLISHMENT has a near media blackout on Norton.

The allure of the swamp is great. But sad that it took Amash a mere eight years to transform from Tea Party Wunderkid to swamp creature.

I hope he enjoys his few months of fame as much as Flakey Flake.

It didn’t take that long. His primary opponent said on Levin last night that he only had 1 bill signed into law. A post office renaming. Amash is self promoting gadfly. That is all.

You are welcome. Also, Lower does not live in district. Lower has not filed yet either. Big PAC formed to run Lower. Do not be deceived. Want more info? Call candidate Tom Norton 616-437-1650. Fire away!

>> The 39-year-old Republican, who was the youngest member of the freshman class in 2011, states his approach succinctly: “I defend liberty and explain every vote here.” <<

>> Amash is President of a family company that gets their product from China. <<

Imagine if this douchebag was HONEST and explained the REAL reasons for his voting record instead of claiming he's doing for "constitutional" reasons to "defend liberty":

"My dad is a Palestinian arab and my mom is from Syria, so my family has always loathed Jews living in the Middle East. I voted against condemning HAMAS for terrorism because quite frankly, I don't have a problem with them doing everything necessary to push out the zionists. In fact, I hope they succeed!"

"I voted against some common sense limitations on abortion because the reality is I'm not 'personally' against abortion. I just say that because I'm running in a Republican district so I need to pretend abortion offends me to make in thru a GOP primary as a conservative. In reality, I'm pretty cool with women aborting babies whenever they want for whatever reason. I knew a chick in college who got like 8 abortions, I just shrugged when I heard about it."

"President Trump going after China is personally hurting my business in the private sector because the company I own has a great deal of investments in Red China and we have to suck up to the commies and ignore their human rights abuses if we wanna continue making a healthy profit. Now Trump's actions is endangering my personal career and that's unacceptable. I will happily steamroll the President to keep my company profitable if I have to!

Why would a Christian be so visceral about Jews living in Israel? Especially if he was a happy citizen of the US? Wonder if he is a real Christian.

I will be giving $$ to Amash’s primary challenger. Amash endorsed extreme leftist Poulis in Colorado, the only thing they have in common is an ignorance of how drugs are a major factor in destroying America. Yet the endorsement. I am a small-government conservative Republican, but NOT a libertarian.
