Conservative Outsider John James Announces Endorsement of American Hero Robert O’Neill

“Whether it was defending freedom over Baghdad or creating jobs in Southeast Michigan, John has demonstrated a passion for service and ability to lead.”

Michigan – The John James for U.S. Senate campaign announced today via a video message posted on Facebook the endorsement of Robert O’Neill, a former Navy SEAL and a member of the elite military team responsible for the killing of Osama Bin Laden.

“I am proud to endorse John James for Senate.  John James represents the epitome of what we should all strive to be as citizens of this great nation,” O’Neill said. “Whether it was defending freedom over Baghdad or creating jobs in Michigan, John has demonstrated a passion for service and commitment to excellence that makes him the best choice for Senate.”

O’Neill said that Washington needs more leaders like John, instead of career politicians primarily focused on their own re-election and appeasing deep-pocketed special interest groups. “John’s status as a conservative outsider is exactly what the American people have been clamoring for,” O’Neill said. “His combat experience puts him in a unique position of knowing what it takes to keep America safe and his track record at the family business of increasing revenue and growing jobs is an indication that John also understands business and what it will take to bring jobs back to Michigan.”

Robert O’Neill is one of the most highly decorated combat veterans in modern American history with 52 honors including two Silver Stars and four Bronze Stars with Valor. He’s led some of the nation’s most critical military operations, many details which remain classified. Following his active duty military service, O’Neill co-founded a veteran’s charity, “Your Grateful Nation,” which is dedicated to helping Special Operations troop’s transition out of the military.

“I am humbled and honored to have the full support of American hero Robert O’Neill,” John James said immediately after the endorsement. “Robert’s service to our nation and continued work supporting veterans returning home from combat is an inspiration to me and millions of Americans.”
