Michigan Rep. Justin Amash has announced that he will not run for president as a third party candidate.

"After much reflection, I've concluded that circumstances don't lend themselves to my success as a candidate for president this year, and therefore I will not be a candidate," he tweeted Saturday.

Amash announced last month that he was exploring a presidential run as a Libertarian Party candidate.

This is a breaking story and will be updated.
