The Ugliest House Primary of the Cycle (Michigan)
National Journal ^ | July 8, 2014 | Jack Kirkpatrick

Tea party-backed Rep. Justin Amash has made enough enemies in the Republican Party so that he shouldn't be surprised when he faces a tough primary challenge. But even by Amash's standards, businessman Brian Ellis's campaign against him in Michigan's 3rd District has been aggressive.

The negative ads appear to be backfiring. I hope Amash gets more terms. We need more Libertarian-influenced Republicans in Congress.

“The negative ads appear to be backfiring. “

Every campaign appears to be negative. I always tune out negativism and I suspect many others do too. I suggested to the independent candidate I worked for (through his staff) that he go positive and state what he wants to accomplish rather than tearing down (in this case)the Republican. We were trying to knock out a seated Democrat, Allan Boyd. So, instead of attacking Boyd, he blew his budget attacking the Republican. In the end he was only polling 4% so I and most of his campaign workers voted for the Republican.

Frankly, I think the day of the negative ad is passed.

Isn’t Rand Paul a Libertarian-influenced Republican? He is all over the place lately and rather scary. All I know is if the DEMS and RINOs are for “em, I’m a’gin ‘em.

That is a perfect metric.

Calling everyone is a libertarian the GOPe tactic and at this point I think it is backfiring on them.
