Republican Lyn Afendoulis, Running To Knock Out Libertarian Amash In Michigan, Has Been On The Board Of The Chamber And Has No ‘Issues’ Page On Her Campaign Site: Is She Believable As A Conservative?
By Dave Levine
I did some snooping on Google and found out that the supposedly “Conservative” Lyn Afendoulis isn’t really Conservative at all. Not that Amash is–Amash once had the most Conservative voting record in the House before 2016. But Afendoulis doesn’t even have an Issues page! How do folks know what her positions on the third-rail issues are (abortion, capital punishment and Immigration)?
Afendoulis is clearly no Conservative! Saying you’re a Conservative doesn’t make you one! Sadly, it appears that, with the exception of Amash, it’s an all-RINO opponent field and the libertarian Amash will almost certainly win reelection.
Amash says Afendoulis is “a Republican first”. He’s probably right. Conservatives don’t hide their positions on third-rail issues.
