U.S. Congressman Justin Amash says he is exploring a presidential run as a Libertarian Party candidate. He announced his plans Tuesday, saying the country is ready for a president who brings people together and restores respect for the Constitution. Amash drew attention last July when he left the Republican Party to become an independent, citing a dissatisfaction with the state of partisan politics. He has also been a critic of President Donald Trump and joined Democrats in voting for Trump’s impeachment. The Libertarian Party welcomed Amash’s interest and said it anticipates a “robust debate” among several candidates.
