Former Republican Senate Candidate John James has decided to run for the open Michigan House seat in District 10, which has been redistricted in a helpful way for Republicans.
James will have a focus on the economy and jobs, which should resonate with Michiganders mired in one of the highest unemployment rates in the country under Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer.
“I’m John James, and I want to grow your economy, not Washington’s,” James said in an introductory video. “I’m an open-minded, free-thinking conservative, and I’m not afraid to listen even if you disagree with me. I’m not a career politician, but I do know how to create Michigan jobs.”
James is a businessman and veteran West Point graduate who works in automotive logistics.
Republicans are generally expected to retake the House in the midterms later this year.
