Sensing He Would Take More Votes From Biden Than Trump, Justin Amash Bows Out of Presidential Race

Amash clowned the Libertarian Party.

Rep. Justin Amash (L-MI) has officially reneged on his plan to run for the presidency on a Libertarian Party (LP) ticket, declaring that he would not seek to be on their presidential ticket.

He made the announcement today via a long thread on Twitter in which he attempted to rationalize decision to his deluded followers:

“I’ve spent nearly three weeks assessing the race, appearing in media, talking to delegates and donors, watching the Libertarian Party’s convention plan unfold, and gathering feedback from family, friends, and other advisers,” Amash wrote in a subsequent tweet.

“After much reflection, I’ve concluded that circumstances don’t lend themselves to my success as a candidate for president this year, and therefore I will not be a candidate,” he added.

It is likely that Amash realized that he would pull no voters away from Trump after spending years of pandering to the Left and alienating his former supporters on the Right. He made a bunch of excuses for cowering out of the race on Twitter.

“The new reality of social distancing levels the playing field among the candidates in many respects, but it also means lesser known candidates are more dependent on adequate media opportunities to reach people,” he wrote in a Tweet.

“Today, most Americans are understandably more interested in what life will look like tomorrow than they are in broader policy debates, and news coverage has reflected those priorities. At the same time, fundraising challenges posed by an idled economy will hinder advertising,” Amash added.

Even though Amash has effectively screwed the Libertarians, he continues to pay lip service to their fledgling party, which has virtually zero accomplishments in nearly five decades of existence.

“The Libertarian Party’s national committee members and delegates have worked diligently to organize the national convention, but lingering uncertainty regarding ratification of online voting, the feasibility of 50-state ballot access and related legal challenges, and unity after the nomination have also weighed heavily on me. We must address these issues as a party to ensure we maximize our potential,” he wrote.

“If you aren’t already a member of the [national LP], I encourage you to join me in becoming one so we can continue working together toward freedom, peace, and prosperity,” Amash tweeted to conclude his monologue.

Amash has gone from a rising star in the Republican Party to a national laughingstock due to his terminal case of Trump Derangement Syndrome. The LP is where this loser belongs.

President Donald Trump Will Move the 2020 Republican Convention Out of North Carolina

The state had interfered in the convention.

Published

President Donald Trump confirmed that he will move the 2020 Republican Convention away from Charlotte, North Carolina in a series of tweets Tuesday night. The state’s Democratic governor, Roy Cooper, had refused to allow the Republican Party to conduct the event at full capacity, citing supposedly necessary coronavirus social distancing restrictions.

The event was slated to be held in late August, well after the apex of the national coronavirus epidemic. Cooper still refused to allow the Republican Party to proceed with its plans to hold a full-sized major party political convention.

The loss of the Republican convention is set to cost North Carolina millions of dollars in revenue for the state’s economy. Major party conventions are regularly sought by governors and mayors, but it appears that Cooper’s desire to restrict the GOP convention overrode his desire for the benefits of the event.

The President had earlier been threatening to move the convention if North Carolina failed to give the Republican Party the green light to proceed in organizing for its convention as planned.

Sources indicate that GOP officials are already scouting out potential alternative locations for the party’s convention. Early reports suggest that either Arizona or Florida could be selected as possible replacement locations for the event, with both states set to be competitive electoral battlegrounds in the fall presidential election.

Arizona Republican Debbie Lesko called for the RNC to move the convention to her Glendale-area district, and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey has suggested that the state would be willing to welcome the President and Republicans across the country for the crucial political event.
