GOP Coward Justin Amash Cheers On Far Left Jared Polis In Colorado
Congressman Justin Amash (R-MI) took to Twitter Tuesday evening to congratulate his colleague Jared Polis (D-CO) for his win in Colorado’s Democrat Primary for Governor. Polis is a far-left multi-millionaire who campaigned as the progressive in the already highly left-wing Democrat primary in Colorado.
Congrats to my friend—and the lone Democratic member of the @libertycaucus—@jaredpolis on his big primary win for governor of Colorado!

Amash’s congratulations for Polis likely came because of the Colorado Congressman supporting Amash in pro-raw milk measures. And while it is true that Polis is more libertarian leaning on some issues than most Democrats, such as on raw milk, he still holds far-left views on most issues.
Along with Amash, Polis received praise from extremists on a number of issues, including Shannon Watts, the rabidly anti-gun leader of Mom’s Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.
HE DID IT! Jared Polis, a @MomsDemand Gun Sense Distinction candidate, just won the Colorado gubernatorial Democratic primary. #coleg https://t.co/xZiGE0eKRS

Polis was also the favorite of the anti-Trump resistance, making that clear in his acceptance speech that was filled with anti-Trump rhetoric.
Polis' acceptance speech is filled with attacks on President Trump. We'll see if Stapleton's speech is filled with the praise of Trump that defined his primary campaign. #cogov #copolitics #9NEWS

On that front, Amash’s positive words are not surprising. He has long been seen as the most vocal anti-Trump Republican in Congress, using every opportunity he can find to attack the President.
As I've said all along, I'm not voting for @realDonaldTrump (or @HillaryClinton). It's time for self-reflection from Trump and @GOP leaders.

Amash seems to be more willing to say good things about far-left Democrats than of the President.
