Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) has been called anything from “al-Qaeda’s best friend” to “not a serious member of Congress” by his Republican opposition leading up to next week’s primary election fight for the seat of Michigan’s 3rd congressional district.
Now, some are wondering if Amash’s opponent Brian Ellis is trying to pull a Thad Cochran.
The blog West Michigan Politics reports that last minute mailers have been sent to Michigan citizens who identify as Democrats urging them to vote in the Republican primary Tuesday to get Amash kicked out of Congress.
The report notes, “WMP spoke to multiple individuals who do not typically receive Republican mail-they identify as Democrats and got these flyers.”
Ellis claims in the flyer that he’s the right alternative because he’s “reasonable,” unlike Amash. Below is a copy of that flyer.
