Skip to comments.Amash faces fresh GOP primary challenge after Trump impeachment comments

Less than 48 hours after GOP Rep. Justin Amash declared that President Trump "engaged in impeachable conduct," a fellow Republican has vowed to challenge him in the upcoming primary election.
Michigan state Rep. Jim Lower made his intentions known Monday morning, announcing that instead of seeking a third term in the state legislature, he will run against Amash for their party's nomination for the 2020 election. Amash has served as the representative for Michigan's Third District since 2011.
"Congressman Justin Amash tweets yesterday calling for President Trumps impeachment show how out of touch he is with the truth and how out of touch he is with people he represents," Lower said, according to the Detroit Free Press.
Fox News has reached out to both Lower and Amash's offices for comment.
Lower, who described himself as "pro-Trump," said he was already planning to challenge Amash, and was originally going to declare his candidacy on July 4. Amash's tweets against the president on Saturday inspired Lower to make the announcement sooner, he said. Lower accused Amash of siding with left-wing Democrats against Trump.
"Amash has not only failed to support President Trump as the President works to make the United States stronger and safer, he has now united with radical liberals like Democratic Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib to try and bring down our President," he said, as reported by WWMT. "He must be replaced and I am going to do it."

We need to know more about this guy Lower...but, Im thinking he cannot be worse than Amash the Trash.
Good, I hope he gets clobbered, and he can join his never Trump friends in loser land.
Good. Best if he gets defeated in the primary and the other Republican wins against the Dem too.
Damned right! Primary the cretin. What a dummy...most RINOs wait until they’re ready to retire to turn on Trump a la Flake and Corker (Romney being the exception, but he’s got another 5 years before having to face the voters).
Could get interesting.
How come no one in the news is pointing out the fact that Amash has a business in China and Trump’s tariffs are affecting his profits?
The subject of the article is Lower so he would refer to Lower unless specified otherwise. To avoid confusion about the use of the word he you should say who you are talking about.
Those that are in that loon’s district had better vote against him in the primaries
Amash is Pro Palestinian, Anti Jew, pro open borders, and has company connections to China of course he hates Trump
LOL you expect the news to be objective LOL they only promote the commie line
He has a voting record with state office. I suggest we start with that
YOU da MAN!
Watch as Amash's polling begins a precipitous tailspin; and (even following the inevitable "walking-back-of-the-statement lies") Amash will be demolished in the primary voting.
I just might need to mail a smallish check when and however appropriate.
“Lower” the boom, Clancy....
Yea,ask him what the Muslim’s are doing to Christians in their territories!
