This past June, West Point graduate, combat veteran, and Detroit Businessman John James announced he will be running again to become the next Senator from Michigan serving in Washington, D.C., running once again as a Republican. Previously, James narrowly lost to Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) by a margin of only 6%, surprising much of the political world and garnered quite a bit of attention who predicted an easier victory for Sen. Stabenow. However, after this narrow loss, James did not lie low, as his West Point education and military combat experience flying apache helicopters in Iraq taught him to put service above self. Therefore, he tirelessly continued his activism and work within the conservative movement, such as appearing on Fox News, and being active in the Michigan Republican Party, keynoting and speaking at various events to fire up conservatives across the state and country. Added to his impressive accomplishments within this past year, he was on President Trump’s short list for replacing former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, however, Kelly Knight Craft was ultimately chosen for the job.
