Winning Michigan this fall is crucial for Donald Trump’s reelection, but his path to victory could be upended by the entrance of Michigan Rep. Justin Amash.
If Amash earned just a fraction of the more than 169,000 votes he won in his district in 2018, his third-party White House bid could affect the outcome of who wins Michigan — and with it, perhaps, the White House. It’s a possibility some Republicans in the state say their party should be taking seriously.
“Clearly with a state as close as it was last time around, everyone thinks darn near anything could have an impact,” said David Doyle, a former chairman of the Michigan GOP.
