Why John James?
From his service to the nation as an army captain, to his enthusiasm for Michigan, to being the only 100% pro-life candidate in the 2018 U.S. Senate election, there are many reasons for everyone to love John James. If James won the election, this would mean that there would finally be a prolife voice representing Michigan in the U.S. Senate.
James served in Operation Iraqi Freedom after graduating from West Point in 2004. He served for eight years, flew Apache helicopters, led two platoons, and received several awards including a Combat Action Badge and two Air Medals.
James’ educational background includes a Bachelor of Science from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, a Master of Supply Chain Management and Information Systems from Penn State University, and a Masters of Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Michigan.
When he returned to Michigan after his service, he was inspired to continue serving by working in his local community: “I am called to a life of service. I want to serve my country and my community and my state. When I would come back from Iraq on leave during the great recession, the economic and societal devastation I saw here in my own state floored me.”
From his work in his family business, James Group International, he and has created 100 jobs in Michigan since 2012.
James describes himself as unapologetically prolife. He said, “We must commit ourselves to protecting the sanctity of life, born and unborn. I am 100 percent prolife.”
He currently lives in Farmington Hills, Michigan with his wife Elizabeth and two young sons.
James’ opponent in the Republican primary, Sandy Pensler, has claimed to be prolife, but has also has openly admitted to believing that abortion is permissible in some cases, and he ran for congress in 1992 as a pro-choice Republican. John James’ firm position with the prolife movement makes him the 100% prolife candidate in the Senate election.
Who will you choose to challenge pro-abortion U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow in the November election? Who will you choose to be responsible for judicial nominees, who will be deciding life and death issues like the fate of Roe v. Wade?
