The Republican base, aside from a few self-important losers, absolutely loves President Trump. Poll after poll has shown this to be true. Yet one supposed Republican, Justin Amash, has chosen to go for the adoration of the mainstream media by repeatedly attacking our great president. He also voted in lockstep with the Democrats on such issues as opposing Kate’s Law and voting against sanctions for Iran. And Amash has shown such a hatred for our long-time loyal ally Israel that he is the only Republican legislator to have the dubious distinction of receiving a passing grade from CAIR, which is considered by many to be a terrorist organization. He is easily the most vulnerable of all House incumbents, and will deservedly lose his primary race by double digits!
Fortunately, a highly qualified primary challenger has emerged. A man openly running on a pro-Trump agenda. A man who has made fighting illegal immigration and sanctuary cities a major priority while in serving the state legislature. And more importantly, a man who is already crushing Amash by a whopping 16 points in independent polling. Indeed, there can be little doubt that Rep. Jim Lower is going to be the next Congressman representing Michigan’s 3rd District.
When I asked Jim his opinion of Amash and his anti-Trump agenda, he replied, ”President Trump has done more in 2.5 years to implement a conservative Republican agenda than any other national GOP leader has in the last 10-20 years. If you look at the economy, border security, tax cuts, appointing conservative justices, and supporting pro-life initiatives, his administration stands in lockstep with the base and the mainstream of the Republican Party. Yet, phony Republicans like Justin Amash still find reasons to attack and oppose this President. It’s clear Amash is on the fringe of the party, not Trump or his supporters. I have supported President Trump every step of the way, even when others were abandoning him, and I will do the same as the Congressman from Michigan’s 3rd District!”
And it is obvious that the rank and file agrees with Rep. Lower’s assessment of the situation. Michigan Trump Republicans, the highly regarded Trump grassroots group, recently held a Squash Amash rally in Grand Rapids that drew hundreds of people.
Rebecca Russ, a Michigan based political activist who also admins the oldest and largest Tea Party group on Facebook, had this to say about Jim Lower. ”We have some good Trump supporting representatives in Michigan, but the Republicans that sadly get the most attention are Never Trump idiots like Justin Amash and Fred Upton. Jim Lower is a lifetime member of the NRA and has 100% pro-life voting record. We need a principled patriot like Jim Lower to represent us Trump supporters in Congress!”
As things stand now, this is a two person race, and Amash is currently losing the race by 16. The only other declared candidates are a couple of fringe candidates who won’t even break single digits. In fact, there is only one path to victory for Justin Amash. He has to hope that multiple Trump-friendly candidates enter the race and split the vote, which would enable him to sneak into re-election. In order to defeat Amash, we need to unify around Rep. Lower. Please go to his website and just check out his positions, volunteer, or donate. And also please like and follow his Facebook campaign page.
