The online article quoted “several sources familiar with the congressman’s decision.”

On September 17, Rep. Amash mounted an online “Constitution Day Money Bomb” fund raising campaign, ostensibly to support the representative’s re-election campaign. Amash is in his second term and faces re-election in 2014.
