Former congressman Justin Amash (L-MI) is launching a new podcast in February, according to a series of teaser posts on his social media accounts.
First elected to Congress in 2010 as a Republican, Amash eventually became an independent in July of 2019 and ultimately joined the Libertarian Party in April 2020. He is the first and only Libertarian to ever sit in the U.S. Congress and he briefly explored mounting a presidential run on the LP ticket that same year.
Amash also recently posted a Twitter thread in which he announced that he’s hiring an assistant to help him with research, scheduling and other “various projects” as needed…
The person will be responsible for researching public policy proposals, staying on top of news, gathering information, providing analysis, scheduling interviews and events, organizing meetings, drafting correspondence, and contributing to various projects as needed.
