Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) got some very bad news via a new poll showing that support in his district has swung to his pro-Trump primary challenger.

Michigan state lawmaker Jim Lower announced that he would challenge him in the Republican primary after Amash announced that he supported the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

The poll from MIRS News Service showed Amash at 33 percent, with Lower at 49 percent.

On Wednesday, Amash again parted with Republicans and voted with Democrats on an otherwise partisan motion to hold Trump administration figures in contempt.

Democrats on the House Oversight Committee passed a resolution in favor of holding Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and U.S. Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress.

The vote passed 24-15 with only Amash crossing party lines to join the Democrats.

Amash spoke to Fox News about the rationale for his controversial vote.

“I didn’t think any of the excuses presented were legitimate. I stuck with what I believed,” he said. “I’m not here to vote with one party. I’m here to follow the Constitution and the law.”

Amash also stepped down from the conservative “Freedom Caucus,” of which he was a founder.

    Now Amash will have to do the DNC trick of , ‘My position has changed’ to remain a Republican or become a Independent trying to fool Americans, or outright Democrat.
    One thing is certain now, he cannot win re-election as it stands today. Amash is essentially a Mismash depending on what serves his own private companies dependence on China’s providing his companies manufacturing…he is not supporting America’s reclaiming American manufacturing.

    Here in Michigan the people are not to smart. They voted in a Muslim and a governor who so far shafted the people of Michigan in less than six months in office. This douche bag lied to the people who voted for him. Do they call for him to resign? No. He has his business in China. Losing money. So now he hates the president. B.S. Michigan’s people are really uneducated fools. Mostly the whiny women. The men? Little skinny jeans wearer who couldn’t or won’t defend America if the enemy knock on their doors. Just sickening to see youth of America be cowards and haters to freedoms and rights. Thanks you Michigan’s schools, you really dumb down American youth for helping destroy freedoms.

    I’m from Michigan and it’s embarrassing to have this RINO in public office representing the Republican party. This guy is toast! He got reamed a new butthole at the town hall meeting and a pig could beat him next election. If he was the only one running on the ballot, I would vote democrat.

    Good news! He needs to be voted out of office.
    He is a Communist Democrat that ran on the Republican ticket just to get voted into office. We do not need more
    Liars and Deceivers in Congress or the Senate!
    He has let down the country and has to go!!!
    If he cannot look out for All Americans and do the right thing to save this country, he needs to be voted out of office. Now if only someone could get Nancy Pelosi to understand she has an obligation to All Americans not just to her Communist Democrats!!!
