Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) was the victor in Tuesday’s primary election, defeating Brian Ellis with 57 percent of the vote. The win was especially sweet for Amash, as Ellis ran a shameless smear campaign against his opponent.
Ellis’ despicable campaign tactics apparently did not sit well with the good people of Michigan. They were able to see clearly though all of the BS and elect the better man. Ellis currently has his tail between his legs. No word yet as to wether or not his reputation will ever fully recover.

In his victory speech, Amash slammed Ellis:
“You owe my family and this community an apology for your disgusting, despicable smear campaign. You had the audacity to try and call me today after running a campaign that was called the nastiest in the country. I ran for office to stop people like you. To stop people who were more interested in themselves than in doing what’s best for their district. Everyday Americans are taking back their government from the crooks and the cronies. They are taking back their government from the political class elites.”
Nice to see a good guy get elected! Show Justin Amash your support in the comments section!
