Would Justin Amash run for president?

CORIE W. STEPHENS, RARE CONTRIBUTOR | FEBRUARY 26, 2016

Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) is considered the most high profile libertarian Republican in Congress after Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.), making national waves with his staunch opposition to the National Security Agency’s controversial metadata collection program. Along with libertarian firebrand Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.), Amash is one of two congressmen who are generally considered the most beloved by the Ron Paul-inspired liberty movement.

After originally supporting Sen. Paul’s presidential bid, who has since left the race, on Tuesday Rep. Amash endorsed Senator Ted Cruz for president. Amash noted in his endorsement in an op-ed at IJ Review, “Ted is not a libertarian and doesn’t claim to be.”

...

Rare: Many libertarians are dying to know: Would you consider running for president some day?

Justin Amash: It’s important that we have a strong libertarian voice running for president. And it’s important that we win. So, yes.

I think Amash should be the next in line to run.

I'd actually be more passionate about him as a candidate than I was about Rand.

Well, good. I need another outlet for my frustration. I hope he is sincere.

When was Amash's father naturalized?

Is Amash ineligible to serve in the Presidency like Rubio or his new hero Cruz?

If Amash would run that would be great. I was there for his endorsement of Rand here in Michigan. I think I was more excited to meet Justin then I was to meet Rand.
