He did it!
Republican and Military war hero John James easily won the Republican primary in Michigan today after President Trump tweeted his endorsement.
Farmington Hills businessman and military veteran John James on Tuesday won the Republican U.S. Senate primary, as President Trump loomed large in their contest to face U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow in the fall.
With 30 percent of precincts reporting, James was ahead with 57 percent of the vote to Pensler’s 43 percent.
James faces an uphill battle against Stabenow, the 66-year-old incumbent who is seeking a fourth six-year term. She holds a major cash advantage with $6.27 million in the bank as of July 18 after spending $3.2 million to reserve television air time for the last four weeks before Election Day.
James reported nearly $869,000 cash on hand as of July 18.
The 37-year-old retired Armed Forces helicopter pilot, espoused Christian, anti-abortion and gun rights views. He was endorsed by Trump, the Michigan Chamber of Commerce, and Right to Life of Michigan, among others.
James also made numerous appearances on the Fox News channel and got the endorsement of musician Kid Rock.
