BYE: Libertarian Never Trumper Justin Amash Isn’t Running for Re-Election As Congressman

He’ll be gone.

Ex-Republican Libertarian Congressman Justin Amash isn’t seeking re-election as a member of the House of Representatives, an adviser to the momentary presidential candidate confirmed on Thursday.

“He hasn’t been campaigning for any office and doesn’t plan to seek the nomination for any office,” said Poppy Nelson, an adviser of Amash, to the Detroit News.

Amash had briefly waged a campaign for the presidency under the guise of the Libertarian Party. When it became clear that he would have to debate several other candidates for the party’s presidential nomination, he dropped out of the race. Some have surmised that Amash’s momentary presidential candidacy was no more than a way to avoid running for re-election to Congress. Amash departed the Republican Party in 2019, and was polling well behind several Republican candidates who were challenging him to represent Michigan’s reliably conservative third congressional district.

Amash later confirmed that he isn’t seeking any office in a Thursday night tweet.

The ideological libertarian began his political career as a member of the House Freedom Caucus, often aligning with more conservative libertarian legislators such as Thomas Massie and Rand Paul. He pivoted to a left-libertarian often partial to democratic and liberal policies and causes, giving credence to Russia conspiracy hysteria when he became the only nominal Republican to endorse the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

Republican Voter Registration is Surging in Florida, Arizona, and Pennsylvania in the Runup to the November Election

This is even more important than polls.

The Republican Party is handily registering more voters than Democrats in the critical swing states of Florida, Arizona, and Pennsylvania in the advance of the 2020 presidential election, a strong sign for the GOP in the competitive states.

Republicans have registered more than 135,000 voters to their party than Democrats have since 2016, a handy lead in a state in which the margin of victory was 44,000. Pennsylvania is probably the most critical state in the 2020 election.

Republicans have registered a strong plurality of the new voters to register in Arizona since August, with 43% of these voters aligning as Republican. 26% have registered as Democrats, and 29% registered with no party affiliation or with another political party.

President Trump won the southwestern state by 4.5% in 2016, with rapid population growth and immigration turning Arizona into a purple state.

Republicans appear to be crushing Democrats in decisive fashion in the voter registration struggle in Florida, registering a whopping 41% more voters than the Democrat Party is in the state. The GOP registered 58,000 new Republican voters in August alone, a 91% increase when compared to August of 2016. Leading Democrats have even been sounding the alarm in the state, having lost it in 2016 with a far greater numerical voting lead then they’ll have this time.

The Joe Biden campaign has largely refrained from traditional political activism and door-knocking in the state, preferring to let their candidate speak through appearances on Sunday shows and softball interviews.

If the President wins these three states, he’s in an extremely strong position for victory, even if Biden wins Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan. He’d need to hold North Carolina and Ohio to end up with 274 electoral college votes in this scenario.

These statistics are more pertinent than polls with highly questionable methodologies and flawed participant selection methods.
