John James (R) for U.S. Senate

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — President Donald Trump is endorsing John James in Michigan’s Republican primary for U.S. Senate, tweeting that he rarely has seen such a “spectacular” candidate with “such great potential.”

James, a 37-year-old African-American business executive and Iraq War veteran, is running against businessman Sandy Pensler in the Aug. 7 contest. The winner will advance to face third-term Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow in November.

Trump, who narrowly defeated Hillary Clinton in Michigan in 2016, tweeted Friday that James is “strong on crime and borders, loves our Military, our Vets and our Second Amendment. He will be a star. He has my full and total Endorsement!”

    I’m inclined to vote for him. Not necessarily because of him, but the message that his opponent is continually stressing in his asinine commercials. Sandy ‘I’ Pensler is praising himself prematurely for all the things that he’s going to single handedly do when he gets to Washington. He’s gonna do this. He’s gonna do that. Truth is he ain’t gonna do much. First term Congressional members seldom do anything other than show up. If he’s sincere in his advertisements, I’m seeing someone one has an unrealistic idea of what he’d getting into.

      Your sentiment is very well stated, and I agree. Look how #45 is hated, because he is delivering on his promises. Every day brings a new guffaw as the so-called political experts are exposed as the real poison.

    Any insight on the James donation to the Detroit woman? I’m just wondering. I can’t find anything on Jame’s reply if he’s has one.

      On October 26, 2015, John James donated $500 to the Friends of Raquel Castaneda-Lopez for City Council. As things currently stand, she is a nonpartisan incumbent in the 6th District.
