The Republican businessman who ran for U.S. Senate in 2018 and fell short, is going after first-term Democratic U.S. Senator Gary Peters in 2020 it was announced on Thursday morning.
James is a 37 year old Black combat veteran and CEO of an automotive logistics company in Detroit.
He fell short to longtime Michigan Senator Debbie Stabenow last year, but did far better than expected in that race.
“We are heading in the wrong direction as a country and our leaders in Washington are failing to lead us toward a better and brighter future. I believe I can help Michigan toward that future we deserve, and that’s why I am running for US Senate.”
“I’d like to announce I’m running for U.S. Senate after careful deliberation and thoughtful prayer. I believe that the time, again, is to serve. I believe that, right now, nothing has changed,” James said on Fox News.
“I still have a passion for service. I still have a clear vision, understand that service before self.”
It would be a big win for James and the Trump Administration if he can flip this Senate seat in 2020. The 2020 race is officially in full effect across America.
