Ron Paul Supporter Wins Republican Primary In Georgia’s 9th Congressional District

State Rep. Matt Gurtler won the first round of the Republican primary in Georgia’s 9th congressional district on Tuesday, according to a report by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Gurtler came first in the primary, receiving 21.5% of the vote. He will now face a run-off election on August 11 against second place candidate Andrew Clyde, who has not sought political office before. Former U.S. Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA), another libertarian-leaning candidate, came in fourth place with 13.4%. Given the district is safe Republican, the winner of this runoff will almost certainly go on to represent the district in the U.S. House… Keep Reading

After a three week presidential exploratory committee, Rep.

Amash Polling At Just 5%, Lower Than Gary Johnson In 2016

The first major national poll to include prospective Libertarian Party candidate Rep. Justin Amash (L-MI) appears to show Amash doing worse than 2016 Libertarian nominee Gov. Gary Johnson (L-NM), according to the Monmouth University Polling Institute. The results show Amash polling at a mere 5% in a three-way race against Republican nominee Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden. Trump polls at 40% and Biden at 47% in the same poll. By comparison, Johnson polled at 11% in Monmouth’s equivalent Spring 2016 poll, and subsequently declined in the polls as voters consolidated behind the major party nominees in the 2016… Keep Reading

Rep. Justin Amash (L-MI) has stated he is not opposed to the United Nations  (UN) and other globalist institutions, describing it as a “positive venue” for U.S. global engagement, in a Friday interview with Reason. “I’m not opposed to bodies where countries from around the world come and meet like the UN and can engage and discuss things,” Amash told Reason‘s Nick Gillespie.  “That doesn’t mean that we should give those bodies authority over U.S. citizens to decide laws for our people, but it does mean that these can be positive venues where countries can come together and hash things… Keep Reading

Mulvaney Aides Leave West Wing Following Meadows Shake-Up

Several top aides to former White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney have been shifted out of the West Wing following the ascension of new White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows. Many believed Meadows would serve as a continuation of Mulvaney’s tenure, given the close relationship between the two men as co-founders of the powerful House Freedom Caucus, which represents fiscally conservative and libertarian-leaning members of Congress. However, so far, Meadows appears to have made a break from Mulvaney, reshuffling several of his staff. The Hill reports that Emma Doyle, a long-time Mulvaney ally and formerly Principal Deputy White… Keep Reading
