Former Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan Endorses Defend the Guard

By: Hunter DeRensis

Justin Amash, who served as a U.S. Congressman from Michigan from 2011 to 2021 and was briefly a candidate for the Libertarian Party presidential nomination, has endorsed Defend the Guard. Amash served most of his career in office as a Republican, prior to joining the Libertarian Party in 2020.

“I support Rep. Steve Johnson’s Defend the Guard Act in Michigan. As a former member of Congress (and someone with a national following), my focus has been on federal legislation over the last dozen years, but there are certainly important bills like this at the state level,” Amash said on Twitter.
