WASHINGTON, D.C. -The Republican Liberty Caucus is pleased to announce the endorsement of Congressman Justin Amash for a third term in Michigan’s 3rd congressional district. This is the third consecutive RLC endorsement for Amash, who serves as Chair of the House Liberty Caucus.
“The RLC is extremely proud of Congressman Amash and thrilled to endorse him yet again,” said RLC Chairman Matt Nye. “Justin Amash embodies everything the RLC stands for and has been a fearless leader in the House fighting tirelessly to reduce the size and scope of government, preserve the privacy rights of citizens and expand individual liberty.”
Representative Amash serves diligently on a number of committees including the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and the US Congress Joint Economic Committee. Amash was removed from the Budget Committee by House leadership in December 2012 after arguing to balance the budget in 10 years instead of 35.
“Removing Amash from that committee was a slap in the face to fiscal conservatives by leadership,” explained Nye. “Amash provided a fiscally sound solution that is desperately needed, and instead of being rewarded for standing on principle and fighting to protect our children’s futures he was punished for it.”
RLCMI Board Member Dr. Eric Larson echoes Nye’s sentiments. “It is truly a privilege to have Justin Amash as my representative in Congress. He explains every one of his votes in detail which makes it easy to hold him accountable and see that he consistently votes for liberty, free markets, and limited government”, said Larson.
Amash received his bachelor’s degree with High Honors in Economics from the University of Michigan and his Juris Doctor from the University of Michigan Law School. He lives in Cascade Charter Township with his wife Kara, a former elementary school teacher. Justin and Kara have three children.

LOUISVILLE, KY - The Republican Liberty Caucus (RLC) has unanimously endorsed Matt Bevin in the Kentucky GOP primary for United States Senate.
“It is time that the career professional politicians more interested in being Washington insiders step aside for new voices who will represent their constituents’ desire for lower taxes and less government interference in their family affairs and their personal lives,” said RLC National Chair Matt Nye.
Nye said it was a thorough process to compare the incumbent Sen. Mitch McConnell and Matt Bevin, and the RLC deliberates carefully when the incumbent is a Republican.
“But in the end, it was clear that Matt Bevin, unlike the incumbent, will stand up for individual liberty, limited government and Constitutional principles. He will hold Washington accountable for its actions that impact the lives of hard-working citizens who know better than government how to manage their lives,” Nye said.
Nye noted that Bevin is a successful entrepreneur who has managed financial and asset funds, including time as Vice President of Putnam Investments, and who has run a successful business that has created jobs in the private sector.
“Unlike Senator McConnell, who voted to increase the debt limit nine times adding $6.7 trillion to the national debt and who voted to expand government spending, Matt Bevin assures us that he will not support an increase in the debt limit unless Congress passes a binding plan to balance the federal budget within ten years,” Nye said.
Noting that Liberty Republicans are concerned about the expanse of government powers, Nye said Bevin scored well with RLC members because he has promised to protect Constitutional freedoms, roll back the Patriot Act and to limit the government’s ability to engage in unconstitutional surveillance of American citizens.
“We believe that Matt Bevin is the best hope for the citizens of Kentucky to be secure without government prying into their private lives,” Nye said.
Bevin resides in Louisville with his wife, Glenna, and their 9 children.
