Quote:

“Social media is revolutionizing government and making Congress more accountable. I use Facebook to explain every vote I take on the House floor, and I personally interact with my constituents online. This not only empowers people at home but also shapes me into a better Representative. It’s an honor to win this year’s contest, and it’s a big win for the forces of liberty and transparency.” – Click here for the full press release

Why he made the cut: As a freshman Congressman, Rep. Justin Amash has recognized the importance of building an audience on his social media channels. He recently won the Republican New Media Challenge, an annual competition featuring Republican Representatives competing to attract the most new followers on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. Between the three social networks, Amash “trounced the competition” by gaining over 11,000 new followers, almost one fifth of the total number of new Facebook likes, Twitter followers, and YouTube subscribers generated by the 96 Members and Committees competing. Not only are his numbers high, but the engagement you see on his Facebook page far surpasses that of his competition. On any given post, he’s got hundreds of likes, shares, and comments.

I personally...

would like to see a Paul/Amash ticket. Michigan would eat it up and we may even shore up some other midwest states that would be on the fence. Ahh to dream. Additionally, I have always said that the ticket needed to look to the future of who would be most capable of taking the torch and running with it.

I'm curious as to how he would do against Biden in debates. That's where I think Nepolitano (sp?) would be much better.

If you mean Rand Paul / Justin Amash 2016, then yes...

... but Justin Amash cannot be VP this year. He is only 32 years old, and the Federal Constitution requires that Presidents and VPs be at least 35.

Seems like Justin Amash really is the coolest member of Congress.
