    A reporter for a Michigan newspaper called Michigan Senate Republican candidate John James’s campaign looking for an interview and thought she hung up the phone before leaving a voicemail saying “f---ing John James … that would suck.” .. “The liberal media can’t stand the idea of a job creator and combat veteran coming to Washington to shake up the system. This happened as we closed in within the margin of error.” James, who was at one point down by 20 points in multiple polls, is now only behind by 2 points, according to a Change Research poll released just less...

    John James' campaign for US Senate in Michighan has caught fire at just the right time. He needs our help. Last month John James was “just another” Republican running against an incumbent Democrat who was on his way to be road kill. James was down 23 points to Democrat Debbie Stabenow with no hope of catching her. Nevertheless, a new EPIC-MRA poll from Michigan shows that for the first time since July Stabenow is below 50% support. In fact, over the last four weeks, Stabenow has dropped 7 points and James has picked up 9 points which is something the...

    Michigan Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D) now holds just a single-digit lead over her GOP challenger in a poll released Thursday that just last month showed her ahead by more than 20 points. An EPIC-MRA survey commissioned by the Detroit Free Press found that Stabenow now leads John James (R), an Army veteran and first-time political candidate, by 7 points. James previously trailed by 23 points in the poll, which was in line with others from the race that mostly show Stabenow with a double-digit lead. Just two polls recorded by RealClearPolitics over the course of the Michigan campaign show a...

    Time to take another Senate seat out of the safe column for Democrats? A month ago, incumbent Democrat Sen. Debbie Stabenow had a massive 23-point lead over Republican challenger John James in the EPIC-MRA Poll. RealClearPolitics wrote that “there is little evidence that [James] poses a threat to Debbie Stabenow, who holds double-digit leads and is at about 50 percent in the polls.” Today, the Detroit Free Press finds much more evidence of that threat — and perhaps for an across-the-board collapse for Democrats in Michigan: [I]n the U.S. Senate race, where the Democratic incumbent, U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow, has...

Debbie Stabenow (51%) leads African-American businessman John James (42%) according to a statewide poll commissioned by the Michigan Chamber of Commerce and conducted by Mitchell Research Communications of likely voters in the upcoming November Election. ... “We are seeing the impact of the brutal battle over Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation in this polling. In our mid-September poll, we had Stabenow leading James by 13% and Whitmer leading Schuette by 10%. Other polls have had the margin in both races much...

    White Republican voters chose a black conservative over a white billionaire in Michigan.  How can that be?  Democrat Andre Carson of the Congressional Black Caucus said the Tea Party (conservatives and Republicans) is racist and wants to see blacks "hanging on a tree."  Folks, as a black Tea Party activist since 2008, I can tell you this is the evil slander of salt-of-the-earth patriotic white voters I have been fighting.  Black conservative John James won Michigan's U.S. Senate Republican primary because he shares the values of most Americans.  James boldly expresses his desire to help Trump Make America Great Again.  Voters chose James because of...

"Rarely have I seen a candidate with such great potential," Trump tweeted. "John 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!" Also on Twitter, James thanked Trump for his support and said he looks...

    President Trump blasted Pakistan in his first tweet of 2018, saying its leaders have given the U.S. “nothing by lies & deceit.” “The United States has foolishly given Pakistan more than 33 billion dollars in aid over the last 15 years, and they have given us nothing but lies & deceit, thinking of our leaders as fools,” he said Monday morning. “They give safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more!” he added. The New York Times reported late last week that the Trump administration might withhold $225 million in aid over frustration with...

Pensler also criticized the way Trump speaks, saying he spoke at a “fourth grade level.”

    In 2018, conservative Republicans are looking forward to challenging ten incumbent Senate Democrats in states President Donald Trump won in 2016, in hopes of defeating them with bona fide conservatives.

The SCF announced Tuesday it would back political outsider John James for U.S. Senate. James, a husband and father of two young children, businessman, and combat veteran is running in the Republican primary for U.S. Senate.

    Kid Rock is ending months of speculation about a possible Senate bid, saying, “F--- no, I’m not running for Senate.” “Are you f---ing kidding me? Who couldn’t figure that out?” the “All Summer Long” singer said on Howard Stern’s SiriusXM radio show on Tuesday. “I’m releasing a new album. I’m going on tour, too. Are you f---ing shitting me?” he asked Stern. The performer, whose real name is Robert Ritchie, had flirted for months with a possible Republican bid against Michigan Sen. Debbie Stabenow, hawking “Kid Rock for U.S. Senate” T-shirts and criticizing the Democrat, saying Americans were “sick and...

The musician, who was born Robert Ritchie and lives in suburban Detroit, has already said on social media that a website touting his Senate candidacy against Democrat Debbie Stabenow is real. He said in July that he would make a 'major announcement in the near future.' Ritchie wrote on a Kid Rock for US Senate website that '[t]he democrats are "shattin’ in their pantaloons" right now…and rightfully so!'

    Lena Epstein, co-chairwoman of Donald Trump's Michigan campaign, has announced her candidacy for U.S. Senate. If Epstein wins the Republican nomination in 2018, she would be up against U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow, who first won her Senate seat in 2000 and won easy re-elections in 2006 and 2012. Epstein is the first Republican to declare candidacy for the seat. A 35-year-old Bloomfield Hills resident, Epstein is co-owner of Vesco Oil Co., a distributor of automotive and industrial lubricants. The company has more than 200 employees and annual revenues of $175 million, according to Epstein's personal website. In a press release...
  • Odds on GOP retaining Senate in 2018

    11/15/2016 8:19:59 PM PST · by Degaston · 17 replies
    The Republicans have 8 seats, Dems have 23 seats, and the 2 Dem-leaning Independents are in this Class. With 44 seats in the other 2 classes for the GOP and Pence as VP this means the Dem's have to pick off 3 seats to get the majority. Utah Hatch, Texas Cruz, Nebraska Fischer, Mississippi Wicker, and Wyoming Barrasso are about as close as possible to being done-deals that their seats stay GOP in 2018. Picking off Corker in Tennessee would be super hard to do. Flake in Arizona could be vulnerable depending on fallout with immigration enforcement. About the only...

    Sen. Debbie Stabenow of Michigan tells Yahoo News that she believes race was a factor in the state's slow response to the Flint water crisis. "The sad, outrageous reality is that people were not paying attention to what the residents were saying because they weren't a priority," Stabenow told Yahoo News and Finance Anchor Bianna Golodryga. "[The state] would react differently when their friends that lived in those areas called ... that's just a fact that [Flint was] treated differently than others would be treated." ...
