  • Trump is considering this former Senate candidate to replace Nikki Haley at the UN: report

    With Nikki Haley stepping down as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations at the end of the year, President Donald Trump is reportedly considering former Michigan Senate candidate and Iraq War veteran John James to fill the post, according to Bloomberg. Haley surprisingly announced her resignation in early October, possibly to pursue greater income opportunities in the private sector. Trump praised Haley’s service at the time, and said there were “many names” of potential replacements to consider. Who is John James? James ran for Senate in Michigan, losing 52 percent to 46 percent against Democratic incumbent Sen. Debbie Stabenow....

    James pulling the upset in Trump-friendly Michigan is a longer shot than Bob Menendez losing in Trump-hostile New Jersey. I wouldn’t wager on it even with someone else’s money. But I’m throwing this goofy poll at you anyway because: 1) It’s Election Day eve and goofy outliers are fun, like a suspiciously large present under the Christmas tree. What’s in that box? Probably it’s just a pair of socks placed in an oversized container as a gag gift. In fact, that’s definitely what it is. But there’s just enough doubt to create a bit of suspense. 2) I like James...

    ... Battle Creek’s Lindsey, an African-American, felt the pain too. “NAFTA just ripped us apart,” she said. And though she voted for Obama both times, Trump got her support in 2016. She said she’ll continue to vote Republican. Lindsey was among Kellogg Co. workers who lost their job because the company had moved work to Mexico following passage of the NAFTA, the U.S. Department of Labor later concluded. Trump’s message was tailor-made to those workers: His first campaign stop in his 2016 candidacy was to Birch Run, a village in nearby Saginaw County (which also flipped from Obama to Trump),...

  • Poll: GOP challenger cuts Stabenow's lead to single digits in Michigan

    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...

    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...

    Washington Examiner ^ | October 12, 2018
    In the Michigan Senate race, Republican nominee John James remains a long shot against Democratic incumbent Sen. Debbie Stabenow. But he's an especially attractive candidate, and the most recent poll shows him just 9 points behind his overwhelmingly favored opponent. What's going on here? Some might point to the fierce battle over Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's nomination. But I think the candidate himself is the key here. As a small business owner who illustrates both the history and progress of the American dream, James is also a West Point and Harvard graduate and a combat veteran. Although he branched...

    Recent polls and surveys are delivering, at best, mixed news for Republicans regarding the upcoming midterm elections. The good news is that prospects have turned positive for Republicans to win Senate seats currently held by Democrats in Florida, New Jersey and Wisconsin. But looking for good news in the House is a bigger challenge. Probability assessments from various sources give Republicans a 25 to 50 percent chance of keeping control of the House. A survey from Pew Research points to greater engagement from Democratic voters -- by measures such as participating in rallies and making political contributions -- than Republicans....

    John James has won the Republican nomination in Michigan's U.S. Senate race. With 29 percent of precincts reporting, initial results on Tuesday night showed James with 56.96 percent of the vote to opponent Sandy Pensler's 43.04 percent. The Associated Press called the race for James at 10:11 p.m. James will go on to face incumbent Democrat Debbie Stabenow in the general election. Stabenow, who was unopposed in the Democratic primary, was first elected to represent Michigan in the U.S. Senate since 2000. In a statement following the call, James said Stabenow "better get ready for the fight of her political...

    President Donald Trump doubled down on his support for U.S. Army combat veteran John James in Michigan’s Republican primary for U.S. Senate just over one week after fully endorsing him. Trump called James “a potential Republican Star” and hinted he would be the best candidate to take on Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow in the Nov. 6 general election. The tweet comes after Trump gave James his full endorsement in late July, telling voters to get out and vote Aug. 7. Donald J.

    In the weeks leading up to the GOP primary for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Democrat Debbie Stabenow, the race between John James and Sandy Pensler has heated up. With less than a month before the race, Pensler and his supporters have been running attack ads on James. Some of James’ supporters, including former Seal Team 6 member Rob O’Neill, who is credited with firing the shots that killed Osama Bin Laden, and Michigan’s native son Kid Rock, have spoken out against the ads. In a letter announcing his formal support of James, Kid Rock referred to the...

    Michigan Senator Debbie Stabenow is a leading advocate of reinstating the free speech destroying “Fairness Doctrine” for talk radio. “Whether it’s called the Fairness Standard, whether it’s called something else,” she told journalist Bill Press, “I absolutely think it’s time to be bringing accountability to the airwaves.” Where did the woman get such totalitarian attitudes? Here’s a possible answer.
