Primary to Watch

Justin Amash of Michigan has been seen as an heir to RonPaul’s legacy in the House.   This of course has made him plenty of enemies.  Now it appears he will have a primary opponent.  Amash is being challenged by Michigan State Senator Brian Ellis. This is a bit of a test for the RonPaul wing of the GOP.

It is one thing to take a seat in a crowded primary.  It is another to hold on to it when you are the target.  If they can do that it will be a good sign that the Libertarians have some staying power in the GOP beyond being a protest vote that occasionally wins in a jammed up field.

We’ll keep an eye on this one.
