Grand Rapids Congressman Amash Rips Opponent In Victory Speech

One west Michigan lawmaker had some venom left over for his primary opponent after Tuesday's election. Congressman Justin Amash demanded an apology from Republican challenger Brian Ellis after claiming victory, saying Ellis needs to say he's sorry for running a quote, "disgusting, despicable smear campaign."


Amash is a Tea Party darling who was opposed by most establishment Republicans in the 3rd district. Those opponents included former Congressman Pete Hoekstra and former Republican gubernatorial nominee Dick DeVos.


Amash will face Democrat Bob Goodrich in the November election in the state's 3rd Congressional District.
