First-term Michigan state Rep. Lynn Afendoulis has announced her candidacy for Michigan’s 3rd Congressional District seat.

The Republican says she is running to ensure the continuation of America's revival, not to work "against it." The 60-year-old Grand Rapids Township resident spent 25 years working with and for Universal Forest Products and once was a newspaper reporter.

U.S. Representative Justin Amash is the only Republican member of Congress to accuse President Donald Trump of impeachable conduct.

Also running are state Rep. Jim Lower and military veteran Tom Norton.

U.S. Rep. Amash, who was elected in 2010 has filed for re-election. He has not faced a primary challenge since 2014.
