    Michigan state representative Jim Lower is advertising himself as a pro-Trump conservative, but he is closely tied to former Lieutenant Governor Brian Calley, who led the ‘Never Trump’ movement in Michigan with Reps. Justin Amash and Fred Upton heading into the 2016 election. Lower even boasted that he would model himself after Justin Amash when he first won elected office, claiming that following in Amash’s lead would “give the citizens in the county some input and see each and every vote.” Lower claims “he grew “disenchanted” with Amash after he came out against Trump after repeatedly voting for Amash and...

    President Donald Trump's son is planning to campaign against the only Republican congressman who has called for his father's impeachment. Donald Trump Jr. will be heading to Michigan to fight Rep. Justin Amash in a primary battle, people close to the Trump Organization executive told CNBC on the condition of anonymity. This comes after Trump's son tweeted out a poll showing Amash losing to his only challenger so far in the race, state legislator Jim Lower, and hinting he will be heading to the Wolverine State to take on the four-term lawmaker. "See you soon Justin... I hear Michigan is...

    Nothing would better encapsulate the GOP’s political turn over this past decade than watching the most hardcore small-government Republican in Congress get obliterated in a primary because he’s worried that the president committed a crime.I wonder if he’ll stick around and accept this beating as a matter of principle or announce his retirement before the election. If he retires, he’ll spare himself the embarrassment of defeat but be seen as running from a fight. If he runs again, he’ll show that he’s defiant to the end but very likely end up humiliated on Primary Day, to Trump’s great satisfaction.Alternate...

    WASHINGTON — Rep. Justin Amash's weekend statement that he believes President Donald Trump has committed impeachable offenses sparked mounting GOP criticism Monday of the Michigan congressman's position — and questions about his political future. “Justin’s a friend, but Justin is wrong on this, clearly, and the way he did this is all wrong as well,” said Amash’s fellow Freedom Caucus peer, Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., in an interview Monday on Fox News. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said Sunday that he believes his GOP colleague is only seeking attention.

    ‘The tea party is largely gone. It was replaced with ... the general philosophy of the party now under Trump’ The Libertarian Party has urged Rep. Justin Amash to consider mounting a third-party challenge to President Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election. The Michigan Republican told his hometown paper that while he would not “rule out” a bid, he has not completely “thought through” his plans.

    In the aftermath of Rep. Justin Amash, R-Mich., calling for President Trump to be impeached over the findings in Robert Mueller’s report from the special counsel’s investigation, he is now going to be facing a primary challenger. State Rep. Jim Lower announced his candidacy on Sunday. Speaking with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham on Monday, Lower further explained why he is running against the five-term congressman. […] “You know at this point, Justin Amash has more in common with Rashida Tlaib than he does the average Republican primary voter in the district. So, we are going beat him on this issue,...

    It was unanimous. The House Freedom Caucus formally condemned Rep. Justin Amash's (R-MI) recent call to begin impeachment proceedings against President Trump at a Monday meeting. Having read the Robert Mueller report in its entirety, Amash tweeted over the weekend that there were enough questions in there to suggest Trump obstructed justice and engaged in " impeachable conduct ." “It was every single person who totally disagrees with what he says,” Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) said after the Freedom Caucus voted on Amash's Twitter thread. They did not go so far as to vote him out of the conservative caucus,...

    GREENVILLE, Mich. — Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan, the first Republican in Congress to accuse President Donald Trump of impeachable conduct, is facing a primary challenge. State Rep. Jim Lower (LOW'-ur) announced Monday he's running for the western Michigan seat. The announcement came two days after Amash sent a series of tweets faulting Trump and Attorney General William Barr over special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. The 30-year-old Lower, of Greenville, says he made the announcement earlier than planned after Amash attacked Trump.

    Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan says he enlists social media to do something unusual: explain why he bucks his party in terms his constituents can understand. 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.” The simple formula has turned the libertarian, who rode into the House on the tea party wave, into something of a sensation. In 2012, the Independent Voter Network called Amash the “coolest member of Congress.” Amash’s latest decision — to state publicly that President Trump engaged in activity...
