Rep. Justin Amash (I-Mich.) said hes looking into running for president.
Amash, 39, was part of the Republican Party until last year, when he left over disagreements with Republican President Donald Trump.
A federal lawmaker since 2011, Amash would face a Republican and Democrat if he remains in the race for Michigans 3rd Congressional District.
But the representative on Monday signaled he may jump into the presidential race, reacting to Trumps assertion that only the president has the authority to reopen the economy. Some governors are making plans to reopen the economy on their timelines, including California Gov. Gavin Newsom, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, and Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo.
Amash said on Twitter that “Americans who believe in limited government deserve another option,” referring to the 2020 presidential race.
At the moment, only Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, the presumptive Democrat nominee, are in the field.
