The independent Michigan congressman announced an exploratory committee on Wednesday, a clear indication he is serious about initiating a bid for president.
"Were ready for a presidency that will restore respect for our Constitution and bring people together. Im excited and honored to be taking these first steps toward serving Americans of every background as president," Amash said in a tweet Tuesday evening. "Americans are ready for practical approaches based in humility and trust of the people."
He must secure the party's nomination at its national convention. While the party has held some state presidential preference contests, the primaries and caucuses have no bearing on who delegates may choose to nominate at the national convention.
The Libertarian Party national convention was scheduled to take place in Austin, Texas, at the end of May, but was abruptly canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Party leaders have a meeting set for May 2 to reschedule the event.

Exercise in futility.
He is supporting the democrats.
He’ll get the votes of those Democrats who can’t vote for Senile Joe.
I’ll send him a donation because he’ll take votes away from Sleepy Joe.
Libertarian? Not so much.
He would have a better chance to oust Eva Braun Whitmer, but he has grandiose libertarian dreams.
Just An Anus!
I think Amash takes away as much from Dems.
Why do you need an exploratory committee to run for the Libertarian Party nomination?
Don’t you just file paperwork with the party announcing your intention, go to the convention, give a speech and you either progress to the next round of voting or you don’t.
It’s not like it’s a major party. It just thinks it is.
His run as an independent for house has tanked
What is there to explore? Like a gerbil in a Richard Gere colonic habitrail!
He is supporting the democrats.
Exactly. Pull enough from Michigan and we have Crazy Joe for a brief while before Hillary or Kamala or Stacey Abrams takes over.
I hope he chokes on it.
He is not going to get any Democrat votes talking like that.
According to Democrats the public is not smart enough and can not be trusted to:
Save their own money for retirement.
Buy their own health care.
Decide if they should stay at home and hide from the flu or not.
Teach their own children.
Use or modify their own land as they see fit.
And myriad other things that Democrat think that only the government can decide for the lowly private citizen.
How many vote a would this guy get? Take away from Biden, mostly.
This fool will probably take more votes from Biden than from Trump. He has connections to China too.
Run, Justin, Run!
Ill take people nobody knows for $100, Alex.
And Jesse Ventura is running on the Green Party ticket.
