Timmer accused Amash of “political grandstanding” because of his well-publicized calls to impeach President Trump. Timmer implied that Amash is planning a run at a higher office and said that hewas failing to represent the political will of his district. “You just talked about how you did better in District 3 than Trump. Do you want to talk about how the last election you got the least amount of support that you’ve ever had because you haven’t supported the MAGA agenda? It’s your right to support whatever you want, but you also know you have no future in this district because of that, as a Republican. So you want to go bigger and brighter,” Timmer said.
Here’s what you need to know about Anna Timmer:
1. She Once Volunteered for Amash’s Campaign
Timmer told Amash that she had voted for him in every election since he first ran for office in 2010. She added that she had even volunteered for his electoral campaign. But now, Timmer said, she had changed her position on Amash.
“I think a lot of the people here who are cheering and applauding your courage most likely didn’t vote for you,” Timmer said, during the town hall. “I, on the other hand, voted for you in every election since 2010,” she continued. “And in fact, I worked on your first campaign in 2010. I knocked on hundreds of doors for you. I made hundreds of poll calls for you, inviting people to your events to meet you. I made tons of personal phone calls to friends to vote you in when you were running against a bunch of other people. So I was there for you from the very beginning. I’m not sure how many people applauding your courage were. But I would like to say that since that time I have changed my position on you.”
Timmer said that she had changed her position on Amash because she didn’t think he was representing the views of his district.
