GOP Senate candidate John James wants you to think he’s not Trump’s lackey. Don’t buy it.

By now you’ve probably heard the quote from John James that he supports Donald Trump’s agenda “2000 percent“.

Republican Senate candidate John James ignores Michigan but galavants around the U.S. for super-conservative endorsements & cash

It’s been many a moon since Michigan Republicans have put up any sort of legitimate candidate for U.S. Senate. In 1996, Ronna Romney, the mother of RNC Chair Ronna Romney McDaniel, got crushed by Carl Levin who had trounced Bill Schuette six years before.

The first democratic presidential primary debates took place this past week in Miami, Florida over the course of two nights.

Republican John James gives Michigan voters a second chance to reject him, may be the first person to lose to TWO sitting U.S. Senators

It’s not every day that a candidate tees themself up to be rejected by voters TWICE and to be defeated by not one, but TWO sitting U.S. Senators. But this week, that’s precisely what John James did, announcing he will run for U.S. Senate in Michigan a second time, this time facing off against the highly popular and well-funded Gary […]
