John James Speaks Truth to Gary Peters’ Outright Lie

“It’s time to change Washington,” James says in new 30-second spot

Livonia, MI —John James’ U.S. Senate campaign today released a new 30-second ad, dispelling the fear tactics deployed by Sen. Gary Peters and his allies amid a nationwide pandemic.

“Senator Gary Peters just launched his campaign with a lie,” James said in the ad, referring to an attack ad launched to deliberately mislead viewers on James’ record on healthcare in the thick of a national healthcare crisis.

“He’s exploiting our fears for his own political gain,” James continued. “Here’s the truth. I will always protect anyone with a pre-existing condition and every senior in our state. Peters is revealing his lack of integrity.”

The ad is set to run statewide starting this weekend.

The John James for Senate campaign also released video of earlier statements where he has clearly stated that he has always supported protecting the health care of people with pre-existing conditions.

A full transcript of the ad is below:

It’s Time to Change Washington
I’m John James. I’m running for the Senate. And I approve this ad. Senator Gary Peters just launched his campaign with a lie. A lie about health care while America is facing its worst health crisis in decades. He’s exploiting our fears for his own political gain. Here’s the truth. I will always protect anyone with a pre-existing condition and every senior in our state. Peters is revealing his lack of integrity. That’s what he will do for the rest of this campaign. It’s a very Washington move. I’m John James. It’s time to change Washington.
