Ellis to take on Amash in 3rd District
WEST MICHIGAN (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - West Michigan Congressman Justin Amash will be challenged next year by someone claiming to be even more conservative.
Republican Brian Ellis announced he's running for Congress Tuesday.
He says he's running because Justin Amash, "turned his back on conservative principles."
That's even though Amash is considered one of the most conservative representatives in Congress.
Ellis is criticizing Amash, saying he voted against budget proposals that would cut spending and cut taxes.
He'll have to run against Amash in a primary election next August.
