(CNN)Rep. Justin Amash, the Republican-turned Libertarian who briefly mulled a presidential campaign earlier this year, said Thursday that he will not run for reelection to his US House seat.
“I love representing our community in Congress. I always will. This is my choice, but I’m still going to miss it. Thank you for your trust,” he wrote.
Amash told CNN last month that he paused campaigning for his House seat while he considered running for president, and that even after he chose not to launch a White House bid, his House campaign remained suspended.
