Ellis who is challenging constitutional Republican incumbent Justin Amash in the third congressional district race holds little support from any grass roots. Ellis’ primary financing is from himself and Washington lobbyists, with less than 3% coming from small donors.
But the real kicker is what the former Granholm appointee and Michigan strategic fund huckster says openly. From the Washington Examiner:
Ellis also has no patience for Amash’s insistence on abstract ideas like the Constitution and liberty. “He’s got his explanations for why he’s voted,” the Weekly Standard quoted Ellis saying, “but I don’t really care. I’m a businessman. I look at the bottom line.”
Oh. How nice.
Though we’ve probably reported on this before, its good to have a reminder there are still plenty of RINOs to go around.
