Amash, the son of a wealthy Palestinian-American businessman of Christian background, is often likened to former congressman Ron Paul, another staunch House libertarian with national appeal among Tea Party voters. But, [his primary opponent] Ellis insists, the Grand Rapids area “is not a libertarian district, and I’m willing to stake my campaign on that.” Amash’s critics in the business community are also exasperated by his repeated defiance of the House GOP majority.
Born and raised in Michigan, Ellis once owned a Grand Rapids food processing company, and then founded an investment advisory firm. He was until recently a member of the East Grand Rapids Board of Education but has never run for national office. Influential Michigan business leaders donating to his candidacy include J.C. Huizenga and Mike Jandernoa—both former Amash donors. Seven such Amash defectors signed a letter supporting Ellis’s candidacy and denouncing Amash and his congressional allies for having “effectively nullified the Republican majority in the U.S. House.”
Just to make sure you know where Ellis stands on his Oath Of Office, here's a very telling quote:
“If something is unconstitutional, we have a court system that looks at that.”
