U.S. Rep. Justin Amash says he’s jumping into the 2020 presidential election seeking the Libertarian Party nomination. The Cascade Township Independent representing Michigan’s 3rd Congressional District left the Republican party on the 4th of July last year. WGVU asked if that’s the day he decided to run as a third-party candidate?

U.S. Rep. Justin Amash says he’s jumping into the 2020 presidential election seeking the Libertarian Party nomination. The Cascade Township Independent representing Michigan’s 3rd Congressional District left the Republican party on the 4th of July last year. He began focusing on a presidential run in February and tells WGVU why he thinks he can win as a third-party candidate.

“I wouldn’t run if I didn’t think I could win and I believe I can win. I’m very confident about that.”

U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders spoke to an energized crowd of about 200 West Michigan trade workers and community members Saturday afternoon at a local union hall.

The Independent from Vermont running in the democratic field of candidates began the rally on the topic of healthcare.

 

“In my view, healthcare is a human right, whether you’re rich, or whether you’re poor, or whether you’re middle class,” Sanders said. “We right now have a dysfunctional healthcare system.”
