Rep. Justin Amash, who mulled over running for the White House earlier in the year, will not run for reelection.
“I love representing our community in Congress. I always will,” the Michigan Libertarian tweeted Thursday night. “This is my choice, but I’m still going to miss it. Thank you for your trust,” Amash tweeted Thursday night.
Amash, a five-term representative who came to the House during the Republican tea party wave of 2010 and helped found the Freedom Caucus, left the GOP in July 2019 and became a vocal proponent of President Trump’s impeachment.
