BURNING DOWN THE HOUSE

March 12, 2019

 John James

 

Republican Senate candidate and rising political star John James grabbed headlines last month when his name was at the top of the list for a potential appointment as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. President Donald Trump has supported James on Twitter, with Vice President Mike Pence visiting Michigan to rally for him last year. Despite James' loss to Senator Debbie Stabenow, James performed better than expected, leading Trump to mention his name as a potential ambassador. Trump subsequently picked Kelly Knight Craft for the job. Despite being overlooked, Michigan Republicans are hopeful James will find a win in 2020 against Senator Gary Peters (D) or 11th Congressional District Democrat Haley Stevens – although one political insider noted that James feels the House seat is beneath him. Onward and upward!
