Amash Forms Exploratory Presidential Committee

Axios reports:

Rep. Justin Amash (I-Mich.) announced on Tuesday night that he has “launched an exploratory committee” to seek the Libertarian Party’s 2020 nomination for a possible third-party presidential run.

Amash gained notoriety last year when he came out as the lone House Republican to support the impeachment of President Trump following the publication of the Mueller report. He later switched his party affiliation to independent.

It is clear Amash wants to position himself as an alternative to President Trump, having criticized his handling of the novel coronavirus response.
