A third Republican candidate has launched his candidacy for Michigan’s newly created 10th Congressional District. John James has run for the United States Senate twice before, both times failing. In a campaign video, he adds, “He’s an open-minded, free-thinking conservative who isn’t scared to listen.”
John James has declared his candidacy for the 10th congressional district in Michigan, covering Detroit and Grand Rapids sections. “He fought for American lives on the battlefield and for good-paying jobs that power livelihoods in business,” James said in a statement.
Moreover, James was defeated by incumbent Democratic Senator Debbie Stabenow in the 2018 Senate election, despite winning the Governor’s race by fewer than two percentage points. “Freedom is on the ballot right now,” James says for the fourth time on News Channel’s “Fox & Friends.” In all of his prior congressional contests, President Donald Trump backed James.
“As much as John James likes to run, he equally loves to lose,” says the Michigan Democratic Party. “Losing two statewide contests in two election cycles should send a strong message to John James that Michiganders are not interested in his representing them,” said Michigan Democratic Party Chair Lavora Barnes.
Therefore, on behalf of Chair Lavora Barnes, the Michigan Democratic Party issued the following statement to John James’ declaration of his candidacy for Michigan’s 10th Congressional District. It’s hardly unexpected that John James runs for government again in Michigan. His ego runs ahead of reality. His previous efforts were tone-deaf and failed to appeal to Michigan residents.
“Losing two statewide contests in two election cycles should send a strong message to John James that Michiganders are not interested in having him represent them,” says Jim Hines. “As much as John James enjoys running, he also appears to enjoy losing,” he says.
