Developing: "Trump Republican" Matt Hall Challenges Rep. Justin Amash In 2018 Primary

Matt Hall, a Michigan Republican State Committeeman from Grand Rapids who is a strong supporter of President Trump, is challenging Rep. Justin Amash in the August primary.

Hall filed his campaign paperwork with the FEC earlier this year and is expected to officially announce his campaign in the coming weeks.

Hall served as a Trump delegate to the RNC in Cleveland last year, and he was also a member of the Rules Committee, helping to end the "Never Trump" movement with a vote he led. 

Hall, who recently graduated from law school, also served as the 3rd Congressional District Chair for President Trump's 2016 Michigan campaign.

According to MIRS:

"Hall said he supported Amash in his 2014 primary race against Brian ELLIS, but now feels that with the congressman's attacks against President Donald TRUMP he has moved too far from the Republican Party. 

"I believe Justin Amash needs to be held accountable to the grassroots of the Michigan Republican Party," Hall said. "The guy is not in line with the Republican base and someone needs to hold him accountable . . . He claims to be a constitutional conservative. I intend to expose him as a fraud."

Hall was a field director for former Secretary of State Terri Lynn LAND and a constituent relations liaison for Attorney General Bill SCHUETTE for four years before going to law school and externing at the Michigan Administrative Hearing system.

"I support building a wall. I support the travel ban. I don't support bad trade deals. I oppose chain migration," said Hall, who said he plans on running for Congress "full time." "Someone has to hold this guy accountable for not being a Republican and not supporting President Trump's agenda."

Stay tuned!

  1. When did Hall become a Trump supporter?

  2. Time has not been kind to Hall. Holy crap.

  3. Kudos and High Fives to Congressman Justin Amash who continues valiantly to defend and uphold his Sacred Oath and Contracted Covenant to the U.S. Constitution ... this sovereign nation's Supreme Rule of Law of the Land (Article 6).
    All of those who continuously and pathetically criticize him for honoring his Sacred Oath .. habitually display your Constitutional ignorance.
    You truly don't seem to understand (or, don't want to understand) the very fact that where the U.S. Constitution is SILENT on federal authority then under the Constitution's 10th Amendment ONLY the various States and their people have the authority to create and pass the laws. Creating Federal Laws on child abuse, alcohol, drugs, etc., etc.. is totally UN-Constitutional, unless and until the Constitution is amended to give the federal government any lawful authority.
