Justin Amash’s Political Career is Now in Jeopardy With a New Primary Challenger Announcement

State Rep. Jim Lower is now Amash’s second primary challenger as grassroots anger builds against the libertarian Republican.

Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) earned massive praise from the leftist resistance this weekend, after the GOP’s most prominent ‘Never Trumper’ formally endorsed impeachment of President Donald Trump in a series of tweets.

While Amash may have curried favor with liberals who oppose the President, a fervor is growing against him within the Michigan Republican Party. State Rep. Jim Lower (R-Greenville) wasted no time in announcing his primary challenge, and he believes his experience in Michigan state politics gives him the pedigree to mount a credible challenge to Amash.

“I am a Pro-Trump, Pro-Life, Pro-Jobs, Pro-2nd Amendment, Pro-Family Values Republican. Congressman Justin Amash tweets yesterday calling for President Trump’s impeachment show how out of touch he is with the truth and how out of touch he is with people he represents,” Lower said in a press release announcing his candidacy.

He continued: “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 (D-Detroit) to try and bring down our President. He must be replaced and I am going to do it.”

Amash has received favor from Tlaib, a radical socialist Muslim, and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), another Islamist who is known for making incendiary remarks against Jews, for his support of impeachment.

Lower confirmed that he was already planning to primary Amash, as the Grand Rapids Congressman had been opposing Trump for years on issues such as immigration, trade, foreign policy, and others.

“It is never easy to defeat an incumbent, but we are going to do it. I have been quietly been meeting with grassroots activists, party leaders, voters, donors, and elected officials in the 3rd Congressional District and the response has been humbling and gratifying,” he said.

“I have also already hired my political team, which I will be announcing later this week. It will take at least $1 million to beat Amash and we believe we can raise that amount and more,” Lower added.

Lower points to Amash’s record, including his votes to continue funding planned parenthood, reject military foreign aid to Israel, oppose a resolution condemning illegal immigrants in the voting booth, and other votes as reasons he is unfit to represent the GOP in 2020.

“Contrast Amash’s record with my own record of accomplishments in just 2 ½ years in Lansing. I will be a strong voice, vote and leader for West Michigan, all you need to do is compare our records,” Lower said.

Lower boasts endorsements from Right to Life, the National Rifle Association, the Michigan Farm Bureau, and the Michigan Chamber of Commerce to show off his conservative credentials.

“West Michigan deserves a congressman who will actually represent the values of our community, and who will work with President Trump and other members of Congress to get things done. I will be that Congressman,” Lower said to conclude his press release.

Amash has another primary challenger, veterans’ rights activist Tom Norton, who has announced his run. More contenders may throw their hats in the ring in the upcoming weeks, as Amash is perceived as vulnerable following his support for impeaching President Trump.

New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu Vetoes Red Flag Gun Confiscation Order

Published

on

On August 7, 2020, New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu vetoed a “red flag” law proposal.

This bill would have allegedly facilitated the temporary confiscation of firearms without due process for people who are perceived to be a risk to themselves or other individuals.

Sununu cited constitutional concerns for his veto. The New Hampshire Governor’s veto of the red flag bill was a microcosm of a tense session of the New Hampshire General Court.

Democrats were able to pass House Bill 687, which would have established a red flag law. Under this law, family members could file a petition to a court to disarm an individual who is viewed as a threat to themselves or others. A complete affront to due process, the gun owner would only then be allowed to fight the action in court.

Second Amendment supporters have adamantly opposed this kind of legislation. They are of the opinion that it infringes on the right to bear arms and the right to a fair trial. Sununu was in agreement, and in his veto message he stated that the bill “goes too far and would weaken the constitutional rights of law-abiding New Hampshire citizens,” while he mentioned how the second, fourth, fifth, sixth, and 14th amendments of the U.S. Constitution would be in jeopardy if this bill was passed.

“I will continue to prioritize suicide prevention and mental health as there is much work yet to be done in New Hampshire, but that work cannot come at the expense of the constitutional rights of our citizens,” Sununu wrote.

New Hampshire is one of the more pro-gun states in the country, with a ranking of 17th place according to Guns & Ammo’s Best States for Gun Owners rankings.

For once, a Republican Governor stood up against the anti-gun mob and rejected a blatantly anti-Second Amendment bill. More Republicans should follow suit by categorically rejecting the pet projects of the radical Left.
