President Donald Trump, who is part of the conversation in the Michigan races this year, has jumped into fray in the U.S. Senate race. He endorses West Point graduate John James, an Iraq war combat veteran, for the GOP nomination in the Aug. 7 primary.
.@JohnJamesMI, who is running in the Republican Primary in the great state of Michigan, is SPECTACULAR! Vote on August 7th. Rarely have I seen a candidate with such great potential. West Point graduate, successful businessman and a African American leader...— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 27, 2018
...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!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 27, 2018
