Rep. Amash Won't Seek Michigan Senate Seat

Say unnamed source close to the libertarian congressman


WASHINGTON — U.S. Rep. Justin Amash, a firebrand libertarian who was looking at entering the Republican field to replace Democratic U.S. Sen. Carl Levin next year, won't be running, apparently.

Last night, after the National Journal cited unnamed sources close to Amash as saying he would not enter the race, Cascade Township Republican tweeted a link to the story and said he loves his district and was excited about the work he is doing in the U.S.House.
